Lot 112 - 1992 Jaguar XJS Coupé
|Odometer reading||65,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £14,000|
That Jaguar's XJS has become a 'bona fide' classic is beyond doubt. Launched in 1975, its twenty one year production life was a testimony to the excellence of its basic design. Its excellent ride and handling balance was justly praised by the contemporary motoring press. The XJS's superlative 5.3 litre developed some 295bhp in later fuel injected form and when allied to automatic transmission gave authoritative 150mph performance. The car was re-engineered in 1991 with the rear side windows enlarged and a new four litre engine. The rear section benefitted from the new 'facelift' rear lights with the front as before, a series 1½ if you will.
This example is described as in good order throughout and comes complete with an MoT test certificate valid until the end of 2017. The alloy wheels have been refurbished and re-shod with the correct tyres and it is reported to drive well. Sadly, the car is only being sold due to loss of storage. Much history and paperwork accompanies J240 NFP including the original wallet, 21 MoT test certificates, a stamped service book and, offered at no reserve, it represents enormous value for money.
