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.
Manufactured in 1984, this XJ-SC was first registered in the United Kingdom on the 8th of November that year. Fitted with the 3590cc straight-six engine allied to the rare and desirable five-speed Getrag manual transmission, the Jaguar is finished in Red with complementing Cream leather interior upholstery and a Black roof. In current (long-term) ownership from 1999, although showing an additional keeper change due to transferal from the vendors business into their private name, ‘B58 LNU’ has had just four former keepers and has covered just 60,751 miles from new (at time of consignment). Self-serviced annually by the (mechanically well-versed) vendor, the Jaguar is offered with a large number of MOTs, with the earliest dating from 1991, a workshop manual, and a current V5C document, as well as the previous logbook from when in the vendors business ownership. Due to be in the possession of a fresh MOT certificate in time for sale.
