The XJS was Jaguar's replacement for the iconic E-Type. Based on the XJ Saloon, the Coupe made its first appearance in September 1975, powered by the company's 5.3-litre V12 engine mated to either a manual or automatic gearbox. The following year, the model took to the race tracks, taking first and second place in the Silverstone TT. The Cabriolet version, the XJ-SC, made its debut in 1983, equipped with the new 3.6-litre AJ6 engine. This two-seater (or 2+2-seater) model was not a full convertible, having a non-removable centre section and fixed cant rails. The option of Jaguar's established 5.3-litre V12 engine came in 1985 and in 1988 the Targa-type body was succeeded by a fully Convertible one. Some 12,372 Convertible XJSs and 5,013 Cabriolet XJ-SCs were made before the model range was replaced by the XK8.
