Description

Introduced in Autumn 1975, the XJS replaced the immortal E-Type on the production lines and in the Jaguar catalogue. Powered by the famously silken 5343cc V12 engine, it was mainly specified with automatic transmission (a manual was available until 1979 but few were sold). Further development included the introduction of the Cabriolet model in October 1983 together with a brand new 3.6 litre engine, and then the launch of a full Convertible bodystyle in April 1988. With a full convertible roof the XJS's somewhat unusual styling finally acquired the elegance and presence expected of a Jaguar and with the standard 5.3 litre engine it backed this up with true sports car performance. Finished in Regency red with beige leather upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its engine, automatic transmission, interior trim, bodywork, paintwork and displays 72,000 miles. It's believed that 'G43 LHD' was in storage between November 1998 to 2006 and rides on lattice alloys shod with new Pirelli tyres. It's understood that a fresh MOT certificate will be present by the time of sale.
