A more relaxed and refined proposition than its E-Type predecessor, the XJ-S was a highly capable Grand Tourer. Introduced in July 1981, the so-called Series II variant was powered by a ‘High Efficiency’ (H.E.) version of Jaguar’s iconic 5.3-litre V12 engine which imbued it with better fuel economy, more power (299bhp/318lbft) and a higher top speed (152mph). While cosmetic changes encompassed the adoption of Starfish alloy wheels and burred elm wood veneers. Yet for all its performance capability, the Jaguar proved a refined and relaxing drive.
This XJ-S 5.3 HE was manufactured in 1984 and was supplied new by Loxleys (Bromley) Ltd. on the 3rd of February 1984 and was first registered to Loxleys. Fitted with the 5343cc V12 engine mated to the automatic gearbox, the Jaguar is finished in its original colour combination of Antelope metallic paintwork with Buckskin hide interior trim. ‘VAA 17M’ has covered a mere 24,947 miles from new (at time of consignment) and has had only five former keepers. Entering current ownership in 2016, the Jaguar was retained by the previous owner for 22 years, covering just c.4,000 miles during this ownership period.
Accompanied by a large history file including the original book pack comprising the operation manual, sales brochures and stamped service book which illustrates seven service stamps. The history file further encompasses a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, a vast selection of past tax discs, invoices and sundry paperwork, as well as MOT’s certificates dating back to 1991. Offered for sale with the cherished registration number ‘VAA 17M’, a current V5C, car cover and MOT certificate until May 2022.
