1985 Jaguar XJ-S V12 coupe

Thanks to the "High Efficiency" 12-cylinder version, launched in 1981, the accusations that Jaguar’s V12 engine was a guzzler was no longer justified and the behavior of this Grand Tourer allowed for very few rivals.
The car for sale is a V12 coupe with the automatic, delivered new in Monaco by British Motors to M J Hernandez. The car comes with its service logbook chronicling its use, and in 1998, we see a British Motors stamp at 42,773km. Our collector bought the car secondhand and the counter shows 57,289km, which explains the state of conservation of this particularly good car. The dark red metallic paint is still beautiful, as are the star-shaped alloy wheels. The beige leather upholstery is impeccable, as are the carpets and the dashboard’s walnut veneer is in perfect state too. The car comes with a Blaupunkt system and the controls for the different devices are complete. The engine compartment shows the good state of the car and we did not see any abnormalities. It is rare to find such a model in such a good condition and with such a clear history. This car should attract both the collector and the enthusiast who wishes to cover long distances in the pleasant refinement of a V12 along with the comfort of a very cozy cabin.
