Prior to the launch of the fully convertible XJ-S of 1986, Jaguar had offered a two-seat Targa-topped model dubbed the XJ-SC. The cabriolet is the rarest of the XJS range and widely tipped to be a collector's piece with values now starting to rise. According to the XJ-S/XJS register of the 115,413 Jaguar XJS built over 20 years in total only 5013 of them were the XJ-SC configuration and only 950 were RHD V12 5.3 XJ-SC. DVLC figure show in Q4 2018 just 28 of these were licenced with another 76 SORN, of which 'E117 FUR' is one, making it a rare breed of cat by any yardstick. Added to this, it has the very rare and now virtually impossible to obtain factory fitted rear hard top. It has remained within the current ownership since 2015, during which it has been treated to a new headlining (2017), fresh (Aston Martin) front suspension springs and 15-inch 5-spoke wheels with new tyres (2018), and replacement battery (2019). The vendor has retained the car for summer use only, dry storing it in winter with a high-quality dust cover (supplied) and restricting the mileage to c.500 per annum. He currently considers the Cream leather interior trim, 5.3-litre V12 engine and automatic transmission to be in 'very good' order, while classing the bodywork and Blue paintwork as 'good' for its 30 years age. The car comes complete with a full MOT and service history and lots of paperwork that verifies the indicated mileage of 56,350 and its maintenance by Jaguar dealers or marque specialists from new.
