Jaguar XJ-S C V12 HE Targa-Convertible Automatic 1985 LHD
Difficult to fill-in the shoes of the iconic Jaguar E-type for the new Jaguar XJ-S sportscar…
Although the finest Jaguar specialists, Chief Engineer William Heynes and designer Malcolm Sayer, developed with the XJ-S a new sportscar which in theory clearly outclassed the Jaguar E-type.
Our XJ-S C is the first Targa Convertible developed by Jaguar and fitted with the fabulous 5.3 V12 engine in HE specification developing 295 HP which enabled the XJ-S to reach a top speed of 250 Km/h. Only 5.013 examples were produced of this Targa Convertible XJ-S C V12 HE.
Unlike most examples which were exported to the USA, this example in Sebring Red and Magnolia leather interior was first delivered in Dubai and is a rare European specification XJ-S with non-tamed power output and speedo in Km.
The desert climate made sure this Jaguar survived absolutely rust-free until arrival in Belgium some years ago.
As Jaguar enthusiasts, also sensitive to originality, we decided to try and preserve as much as possible the authenticity of this rare XJ-S C Targa-Convertible sportscar.
On the technical side we made sure this Jaguar could be immediately enjoyed. And yes, this XJ-S C is great fun to drive in closed, as a semi-convertible or as a full convertible.
Up to the new owner to decide if he is happy with the actual original looks of this sportscar.
