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 and 318lbft of torque developed by a post 1981 H.E. (high efficiency) 5.3 litre V12 engine, this still resulted in a claimed top speed of 150mph and 0-60mph in less than eight seconds. Introduced at the 1988 Geneva Motor Show, the long awaited full convertible version featured a reinforced floorpan, frameless doors and sophisticated electric hood (complete with heated glass rear window). Underpinned by the same all-round independent coil-sprung suspension and power assisted rack and pinion steering as its fixed head coupe siblings, the soft-top came with anti-lock brakes as standard. Priced at some £40,000, a waiting list was quick to form.

Vendor Condition Ratings:

Bodywork: 'Very good'
Engine: 'Very good'
Electrical Equipment: 'Very good'
Paintwork: 'Very good'
Gearbox: 'Very Good'
Interior Trim: 'Very good'

H&H are indebted to the vendor for the following description:

It has cruise control, air conditioning, automatic transmission, fog lamps, removable jaguar cassette tape player, electric windows and mirrors and heated seats. The inside is pristine and loved by its previous owner inside there is a sea of connolly hand made stitched leather and burr walnut wood. The gauges and switches work properly.

This is a stunning example of british Jaguar XJS first owner from new with 46,000 miles which has been nurtured by one owner and garaged day and night. It even has the original carpet branded Jaguar mats. the suspension soaks up the bumps and gives a very smooth and quite ride. It has been admired and cared for and garaged night and day, and never ventured out into the snow.

The jaguar has the well known best possible adored V12 engine attached to a 4 speed automatic. the engine runs like new develops 263Ps and always has ample torque. the car is as mechanically fine as it looks and turns many admiring glances with the roof down when its driven around.

the original panel work is in very good shape and the shut lines are correct, and the car is rust free. the electric hood works like silk at the touch of a button and the rear screen is heated and of glass composite. A neat tonneau is there to cover the good for those days when it can stay stowed.
