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.
Originally registered on 8th December 1994 this delightful XJS benefits from having had over £9,000 spent on her some six years ago. The Flamenco red paintwork is in very good order as is the magnolia leather trim. Mechanically these 5,993cc V12 engines are very robust and reliable; these ‘end of the line’ XJS’s are generally viewed as being the most stylish and reliable. Aesthetically pleasing, this is a coupé of stunning lines and proportions with a well-designed cockpit area featuring simple to read instruments and buttons within easy reach. Supplied with a V5C registration document, together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 29th June 2018 and a history folder; this Jaguar offers excellent value when you consider the initial capital cost of over £50,000.
