It was in 1988 that the fully Convertible version of the XJ-S replaced the Targa-Type XJ-SC, and this smartly-presented righthand drive Artic Blue example hails from April of that year. It has a fine history, having been first registered by Jaguar Cars and apparently used on occasion by the then Chairman, Sir John Egan. In October the following year it was sold to Central News presenter Bob Warman who retained until 1996, when it was acquired by the vendor. Since then it has been garaged, reserved for the summer months, and maintained, updated and serviced on a regular basis by former Jaguar Cars engineers at Specialist Motor Services of Halesowen, and more recently by the vendor's local garage. He currently regards the bodywork and paintwork as being in 'good condition' and the V12 engine as 'smooth and quiet'. This Convertible cat's total indicated mileage stands at just 49,925 and the Jaguar is now being offered complete with an extensive history file containing full documentation, Jaguar workshop manuals etc, tonneau cover and waterproof hood bag, plus the benefit of aftermarket central locking and FoxGuard alarm and immobiliser systems. Good examples of these delightful motorcars are becoming more and more keenly sought.
