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. Supplied new by Dutton Forshaw of Preston ‘JSK248’ is offered from a private collection, covered just 36,300 miles from new and has been in current ownership since 1998. Offered with bookpack, handbooks, service book stamped up to 1998 plus a collection of invoices and old MOT certificates back to 1992 at 25,404 miles. Recently subject to a new battery and two refurbished rear brake calipers the Jaguar has a current no advisory MOT into June 2021.The vendor currently classes the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine, electrical equipment and gearbox as all being in 'Good' order. This wonderful XJ-S is a true timewarp.
