The Jaguar XJS is a luxury grand tourer, produced from 1975 to 1996 and replaced the E-Type. Although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJS was a competent replacement with better aerodynamics than the E-Type. The XJS was last produced on 4th April 1996, by which time 115,413 had been produced during a 21 year production life. The car was re-engineered in May 1991 and renamed ‘XJS’ (facelift). The rear side windows appeared enlarged and the buttresses stayed, although their appearance was minimised by the new side window treatment, as designer Geoff Lawson argued that they were part of the car's character. The car received a new 4.0 litre version of the AJ16 engine, at the same time, the car benefitted from a revision to the rear brakes; they were now fitted with outboard rear disc brakes, instead of the more complicated inboard items on previous models. It also received more aerodynamic front and rear bumpers.
This example is presented in Flamenco Red with a white coachline and has a cream leather interior. The car has just had a new headlining fitted by Ultimate Cats, Edgeware in 2021 who also serviced the car in February 2023. The car is fitted with electric windows, factory fitted radio and cruise control. This iconic Jaguar is offered without reserve which makes it a very attractive purchase indeed.
