The Jaguar XJS offers its owners a slice of, well deserved, motoring history defying critics, as it did, to become one of the world's most successful GT cars. From the introduction of the HE engine in 1982, the 3.6 AJ6 engine in 1984 which expanded to four litres in 1989, the cabriolet in 1985, the full convertible in 1988 and the face-lift model in 1993 to the final commemorative model in 1995. The XJS was continuously developed during its 20 year production life. It is, though, the facelift model presented here today offering a more modern look and feel. Better performance from the new 16", five-spoke alloys and an improved interior with the biggest change being the long-awaited addition of proper rear seats. In June the following year, Jaguar introduced a new engine, the AJ16. An evolution of the proven AJ6 engine, it featured a new cylinder head, increased compression, sequential fuel injection and numerous other changes to provide better fuel economy, driveability, refinement and performance.
This elegant XJS Convertible offered in Kingfisher Blue with contrasting ivory leather, benefits from a high specifications including electric leather seats and ice-cold air conditioning. It is offered with a wealth of history. The woodwork is in good order throughout, as is the paintwork and chrome. Recently the roof has been replaced and the window electrics all gone through and now working perfectly. Supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2019 and the handbook pack containing all the appropriate books. This really is a fine example of a desirable and iconic grand tourer which begs to be taken to the South of France with the roof down to see exactly why Jaguar sold these cars so successfully.
