Description

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 1990 XJS 5.3 V12 Convertible is offered in Signal Red with Magnolia leather trim has been cherished by a Jaguar enthusiast owner. This example has an impressive history and is clearly a treasured motor car.
Having recently been part of a Jaguar collection, it is a fabulous example of the flagship 5.3 liter V12 XJS that is set to appreciate in value over time.
