The Jaguar XJS Coupé is a timelessly beautiful design. We still see them regularly because it was a very popular model from the Jaguar range at the time. What we rarely encounter, however, is a Jaguar XJS Coupé that was delivered new in the Netherlands. This copy comes from the second owner. The first owner bought the car new at Cito Motors in Eindhoven in 1986 and kept the car until 2018. Then the car was sold to the second owner, a Jaguar collector with a large collect. The car has only driven 96,000 demonstrable kilometers and is in beautiful condition. The first owner has put together a very nice car. He ordered the car in this beautiful metallic red exterior color and completed the configuration with an impeccably beautiful beige leather interior. It is a beautiful color combination that fits perfectly with the chic look of the car. It is not only the color combination that makes this car a beautiful example, but also the motorization could not be better. This Jaguar XJS is powered by the 5.3 liter V12 engine, which in this case is coupled to a four-speed automatic transmission.
The body of the Jaguar still looks very nice. The paint has already been repainted for cosmetic reasons and is still in very good condition. The paint does of course have some light traces of use here and there that match the age and mileage. The chrome on the bumpers is also in neat condition, as are the original alloy wheels. The sheet metal on the body is nice and thin and the fits are correct.
The interior is completely original and still in very good condition. It is immediately clear at first glance that this car has had a luxurious life until today, just like a Jaguar. The inside is lined with beautiful and supple beige leather and still looks neatly cared for. The dashboard has wood inlay that is also neatly cared for. Furthermore, some chauvinism cannot be denied to the gentlemen of Cito Motors, because for a Brabant car company there is of course no other option than to mount a Philips car radio. The Jaguar XJS is also extensively equipped with luxury such as climate control, a drill computer, cruise control and of course that fabulous V12 engine.
The technology has always been well maintained and the maintenance history is present with the car. The Jaguar is a typical "Gran Tourer", this big cat is made to drive through Europe at speed and in comfort. The engine produces 295 hp and is mainly aimed at delivering torque. The chassis effortlessly filters all unevenness from the road surface and gives you a lot of confidence to continue driving the car. The steering feel is very good and it takes no effort to set a convincing course in this stately British tourer.
The car comes with a full board folder and even the old registration documents are kept with the car. In short, not only a rarity, as a Dutch delivered car, but also in the condition in which this car is. An all-rounder with an executioner of a motorcycle!
