1975 saw the launch of the Jaguar XJS. In the year that Margaret Thatcher was made the leader of the Conservative Party and petrol was 70p/gallon, the new grand tourer from Jaguar was introduced as the replacement for the iconic E-Type. During an astonishing build run of 21 years, 115,413 units were produced by the Coventry manufacturer at their world-famous Browns Lane factory. V12 engine cars were unusual at the time with notable exceptions coming from Italian luxury sportscar 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. The XJS model was available until production ceased in 1996.
We are thrilled to offer this stunning classic Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible, 5.3 litre. This beautiful car presents extremely well in unmarked Arctic Blue, it has a magnolia hide interior piped with blue, beige carpets and a blue roof. This extremely low mileage example has been dry stored for several years and boasts an impressive service history of 20 stamps in the original service book. This is complemented by a large history folder containing old invoices, previous MoT test certificates, original tax discs and the owner’s manual wallet. We are informed that this impressive convertible drives as well as it looks. This Jaguar offers luxurious, open top motoring combined with immense power and smoothness generated by the legendary V12 engines. The XJS Convertible is both a well sought-after model and surely a sound investment for the discerning buyer, especially one in this condition and with such great history.
