Originally launched in the later part of the 1980s, the Jaguar XJ40 was the first new Jaguar design to be unveiled after Jaguar separated from British Leyland in 1984. However, what was to be a new start for Jaguar was at the same time, the end for this casting's original maker, Corgi Juniors. Hot Wheels, after the Mattel acquisition of Corgi reissued the Jaguar XJ40 casting in the Auto City range and later on in the mainline. Hot Wheels debuted the Jaguar XJ40 with a light bar on it's roof and in the classic livery of British Police cars with bright yellow on white and black checker-patterning. Later Hot Wheels iterations were in 1997 and both were in solid colours. Unlike most Corgi castings of British cars, this casting is actually left-hand drive.
The Jaguar XJ40 has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
