Jaguar Paint Codes


JAGUAR PAINT CODES

There are numerous Jaguar paint code lists on the internet – most are incorrect!

This is the definitive list, which I began in 2008 with the assistance of Anders Ditlev-Clausager at the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. It was finally completed by Den Carlow in 2012 and lodged with Jaguar Heritage as the official Jaguar Paint Code list.

Please take a look, and if you do not see your Jaguar paint code listed, PLEASE email Xclusively Jaguar, as there are still many codes to be added when time permits, so that we can have a list which is as complete, and therefore as useful, as possible.

Listed alphabetically by code.

Paint types are listed in order to clarify the use of differing codes for colours of the same name.

Colours which pre-date the code system are listed at the end. Their original codes were specific to the paint manufacturer that created them and as these have been superseded many times over, they are not listed. For these colours, please consult a reputable body refinisher, such as Camamile & Hay in Nottingham, who will assess and mix paint to order.

Opalescent, Metallic, Micatallic and Xirallic are all differing forms of ‘metallic’ paint finish, Opalescent being the earliest and Xirallic the most recent.

Solid colours are non-metallic.

CoB – Clear over Base

TPA – Thermoplastic
