That Jaguar's XJ-S (later the XJS) is becoming an increasingly sought after classic is beyond doubt. Based on the XJ saloon, it was launched in September 1975 as a replacement for the legendary E-Type, though it was of a very different character - the E-type being a race-bred sports car while the XJS was more of a high speed GT machine. The excellence of its basic design was ably demonstrated by its 21-year production life. Based around a two-door monocoque bodyshell equipped with all-round independent suspension (double wishbone front, lower wishbone/radius arm rear), four-wheel disc brakes and power-assisted rack and pinion steering, some of its underpinnings even found their way into the later Aston Martin DB7 and Jaguar XK8. However, the XJ-S could only cheat time for so long and in 1991 parent company Ford thoroughly reworked the luxury Grand Tourer at a cost of £50 million.
