The Jaguar XJS Convertible, which first appeared in 1988, was considerably more than just a coupé with the roof removed. The earlier 'T'-top cabriolet paved the way as the first open Jaguar since the demise of the E-Type in 1975 but this was to be the first full convertible and a strengthened sub-frame was employed in order to alleviate scuttle shake. Retaining the roomy cockpit space of the coupé, the new convertible naturally boasted all the expected Jaguar refinements as standard making for a very fine, open grand touring car. The XJS was continuously developed during its 20 year production life. Today, this model is very much establishing itself as a most worthy latter day classic with good examples being eagerly sought by connoisseurs of the marque.
This superb example of this luxurious sports convertible is presented in Carnival Red with Cream leather interior, which has recently been re-upholstered to a very high standard. The car comes with a black electrically operated hood and both the interior and exterior are in absolutely superb condition. Powered by the smooth six-cylinder 4.0 litre engine mated to an automatic gearbox, this British sports car still looks as fabulous as it did the day it was manufactured.
