|Odometer reading||81,000 miles|

Launched in 1975, the Jaguar XJS 21 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. The V12 engine's capacity was enlarged to 6.0 litres in May 1992 and it had a power output of 227kW (304hp).
Originally registered on 12th May 1993, this delightful XJS benefits from recently having had over £3,500 worth of work undertaken, the most recent works included a new radiator installed in September 2018. The paintwork is in very good order as is the grey leather trim. 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, this Jaguar offers excellent value and represent a high quality motorcar at nearly 30 years old.
