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 XJS 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 fabulous example is presented in white with brown leather interior and a brown hood. The car is in fantastic ‘time warp’ condition and has just been repatriated to the UK from Guernsey and as such is being sold with a NOVA and would need to be registered with the DVLA by the new keeper. Its paintwork and interior are in superb condition considering its age and being the more desirable V12 model, this surely must be one of the finest examples on the market today.
