Story

The changes were aesthetic as well as mechanical (wider track), but it was the introduction of the 5.3-litre

V12 engine that characterised this series, although a few examples were produced with the six-cylinder

XK engine. The large engine is accompanied by a larger radiator grille. The block was very modern for

its time, breaking with the classic 'long stroke' and cast iron block of the six-cylinder engines. Well maintained, it is

more reliable. The smoothness of the engine compared to the six-cylinder engine is surprisingly good and the

acceleration is very powerful.

The 3 Series is based exclusively on the longer wheelbase 2+2 version as the automatic transmission is

now available on both the roadster and coupe 2+2 versions. The Girling front brakes are now ventilated.

The long chassis and weight gain, although the V12 is no heavier than the XK engine, gives a more civilised

but still sporty character depending on the drive, especially with the rare mechanical gearbox versions, which

are sought after for this.
