"In 1975, the Jaguar E-Type finally gave way to an all new and more efficient Jaguar, the Jaguar XJ-S. This new luxury grand tourer, although never quite having the same sporting image as the E-Type, was actually more aerodynamic with the final example leaving the production line on 4th April 1996; at that stage 115,413 units had been manufactured during a 21 year production life. V12 engine cars were unusual at the time with notable exceptions coming from Italian luxury sports car makers Lamborghini and Ferrari. The specifications of the XJ-S compared well with both Italian cars; it was able to accelerate to 60mph in 7.6 seconds and had a top speed of 143mph.
This stunning XJS offered in Signal Red with Magnolia leather trim has been cherished by a Jaguar enthusiast owner. Supplied new by Henlys of Chester in February 1989 to the Iceland frozen food company, this example has a comprehensive service history with 12 service stamps from main dealer and specialists found in the original service booklet with the last at 91,000 miles. Having recently been part of a Jaguar collection, this example has a valid MoT test certificate until September 2019. A fabulous example of the flagship 5.3 litre V12 XJS that is set to appreciate in value over time."
