  • TWR body kit

  • Rare manual example

The XJS proved to be a competent grand tourer and was actually more aerodynamic than the E-Type. The last XJS was produced in 1996 and, at that stage, 115,413 had been produced during a 21 year production life. The specifications of the XJS compared well against its Italian competitors, Lamborghini and Ferrari; it was able to accelerate to 60mph in 7.6 seconds and had a top speed of 143mph.

This very rare manual, 3.6 litre XJS is presented in burgundy with Dove Grey leather trim and features a desirable TWR body kit including spoiler and wheels. This example is offered with a good history file of invoices and documentation dating back to its purchase by a Mr. Akirov in January 1987, also contained within the file is a letter from Jaguar/Daimler dated 30th January thanking Mr. Akirov for his purchase. Invoices for services and MoT's continue regularly until the car was eventually taken off the road and dry stored in 2006 while awaiting a new clutch which has recently been fitted alongside a full service, including all fluids. Ready to appreciate in looks and value, a future E-Type with a manual gearbox giving the best driving experience.

*Interested parties should note that upon an HPi inspection a marker can be found however we have obtained a letter from HPi confirming that 'the VIC Car Record showing under the Condition Alert Register is solely an identity check, nothing more serious.
This letter can be found in the history file and, we are informed, in time, this marker should be removed due to clerical error.
