Introduced in Autumn 1975, the XJS replaced the immortal E-Type on the production lines and in the Jaguar catalogue. Powered by the famously silken 5343cc V12 engine, it was mainly specified with automatic transmission (a manual was available until 1979 but few were sold). Further development included the introduction of the Cabriolet model in October 1983 together with a brand new 3.6 litre engine, and then the launch of a full Convertible bodystyle in April 1988. With a full convertible roof the XJS's somewhat unusual styling finally acquired the elegance and presence expected of a Jaguar and with the standard 5.3 litre engine it backed this up with true sports car performance. Finished in light blue with a beige leather interior this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its engine, automatic transmission, interior trim, bodywork plus paintwork and has covered 109,800 miles from new. Offered with its original book pack, handbooks, service book with 16 entries, Wood rim steering wheel and 2 sets of keys its understood a fresh MOT will be present by the time of sale.
