Lot 272 - 1996 Jaguar XJS 6.0 Coupé
|Odometer reading||61,000 miles|
|Estimate||£19,000 - £23,000|
|Result||Sold - £19,600|
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 car was re-engineered in 1991 with the rear side windows enlarged. The rear section benefitted from the new ‘facelift’ rear lights.
This Coventry big cat has benefitted from nearly £30,000 worth of restoration and rebuild and it shows. Presented in Kingfisher Blue with Oatmeal leather this stunning car shows the owners passion for the model. Works include a full engine rebuild by Jaguar V12 specialist Tom Lenthal, a complete suspension rebuild and a renewal of the exhaust system. Stored in a heated garage this XJS has only covered 250 miles since the rebuild work. These miles were mainly to take this V12 coupe to Jaguar enthusiasts meetings. Miles well worth it as the vendors two winning trophies prove. Supplied with a V5C registration document the vendor informs us the car will have a full years MoT certificate prior to auction.
