In 1975, the Jaguar E-Type finally gave way to an all new and more efficient Jaguar, the Jaguar XJ-S. This new luxury grand tourer, although never quite having the same sporting image as the E-Type, was actually more aerodynamic with the final example leaving the production line on 4th April 1996; at that stage 115,413 units had been manufactured during a 21 year production life. V12 engine cars were unusual at the time with notable exceptions coming from Italian luxury sports car makers Lamborghini and Ferrari. The specifications of the XJ-S compared well with both Italian cars; it was able to accelerate to 60mph in 7.6 seconds and had a top speed of 143mph.

This stunning XJS offered in Signal Red with Magnolia leather trim has been cherished by a Jaguar enthusiast owner. Supplied new by Henlys of Chester in February 1989 to the Iceland frozen food company, this example has a comprehensive service history with 12 service stamps from main dealer and specialists found in the original service booklet with the last at 91,000 miles. Having recently been part of a Jaguar collection, this example has a valid MoT test certificate until September 2019. A fabulous example of the flagship 5.3 litre V12 XJS that is set to appreciate in value over time.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
