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 and 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 a more aerodynamic front and rear bumpers.

This wonderful example was registered new on 1st August 1995 and was delivered new to its one lady owner. Having covered a mere 66,500 miles from new the XJS is in very good order throughout presented in arguably the most desirable colour combination of dark blue over cream leather interior. The paintwork retains a deep shine and the interior and engine bay are very presentable. Offered with a history file containing the original service booklet with relevant service stamps, sundry bills and invoices, various old MoT records, and the current registration document showing its one owner from new. This is an unrepeatable opportunity, and we expect it will be keenly contested at auction. Consigned by Daniel Godin.
