What V12 engines were available to the US in 1982?

A few days ago, I read an interesting quotation from a 1982 Jaguar XJ-S adverstisement. The text said that the Jaguar was the only V12 offered in the United States. That caused me to wonder. Surely there were other cars available worldwide, so why not in the US? I still don't know which ones were offered in the US, but I did find a number which were produced that year with V12 engines.

Anyone know if the quotation was true?
