Lot 291 - 1991 Jaguar XJS HE V12 Coupé
|Estimate||£5,000 - £7,000|
The Jaguar XJS was a luxury Grand Tourer produced from 1975 through to 1996 and replaced the E-Type. Although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJS was a competent Grand Tourer and actually more aerodynamic than the E-Type. The last XJS was produced on 4th April 1996; at that stage 115,413 had been produced during a 21 year production life. It was able to accelerate to 60mph in 7.6 seconds and had a top speed of 143mph. From July 1981, the XJS received the new High-Efficiency engine for much better economy; as a by-product, power was increased to 295bhp.
This XJS in HE specification boasts the fabulous V12 engine and is offered in Westminster Blue coachwork with contrasting cream leather interior and lattice alloy wheels. On a recent road test, this Jaguar performed well with all the instruments in working order. A large history file accompanies the car with many invoices recording works carried out by specialist Jaguar garages. The vendor wishes the new owner to be confident with the car and so has advised us that it will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate. With a low estimate, this UK registered Jaguar XJS HE V12 represents excellent value.
