Launched in 1975, Jaguar's XJS was never envisaged as a direct replacement for the E-Type. More of a soporific grand tourer than an out-and-out sports car, it was designed to seamlessly blur borders rather than blast down back roads. To this end, it was equipped with automatic transmission as standard. Though, when fed the quoted 295bhp the 5.3 litre V12 engine, still claimed a top speed of 150mph and 0-60mph in less than eight seconds.

The vendor describes the car as 'exceptional' and having been garaged since new. With just 2 former keepers this XJS-V12 convertible has been with the current owner since 2019. Having covered just 60,890 miles from new, the car has benefitted from a replaced Mohair roof and headlining from the leading trimmers - Aldridge Trimming, a complete reconditioned steering rack, a reconditioned gearbox in 2015 - at a cost of c.£2000, a Bosch battery and, more recently, new front brake calipers and shock absorbers in 2019. A Kenwood in-car entertainment with removable head unit front.

Accompanying the car, there’s an original Jaguar book pack with handbooks and a service book that shows 38 entries in the service record. The last service was an oil and belt service in September 2020. There are 2 sets of keys, a collection of old tax discs and invoices, extensive MOT history, hood cover, key fobs for the factory alarm and a tool kit.

H&H are indebted to the vendor for the following information:-
