THe XJ-S version came as a coupé and a convertible, but also as a rare XJ-SC, in other words the Targa. Only a small amount was made as a Targa, which makes this car a real collectible.

This Jaguar is in neat and original condition. The car starts immediately and idles nicely at 900 rpm, and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears. The Jaguar brakes properly and the engine compartment looks fresh and neat. The car is equipped with the original leather which is in a relatively neat condition, original alloy 16” Jaguar wheels and a fresh soft-top plus hardtop for the Targa roof. The Targa roof can thus be closed with a soft-top and a removable hardtop. The lacquer is still in good condition and has a nice deep gloss, the front of the car has slight traces of rubble impact (see pictures).

The Jaguar comes with the original manuals and some service history.

The Jaguar XJS V12 is the most powerful XJS. Don’t wait too long, place your bid and become the new owner of this Jaguar XJS before prices start to match those of the E-type. Especially the XJSC is very difficult to find in this condition these days.
