The XJ-S had been under development since 1968 and as a 2+2 fixed head coupe was intended as a replacement for the now legendary E-type. From the beginning it was only available with the V12 engine which gave excellent performance with 0-60mph being dispatched in a very respectable 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 150mph. Later in the XJ-S’s life it was also available with a six cylinder engine and a manual gearbox. As with any vehicle that has had as long a production life as the XJ-S there have been major developments. Two of the more significant ones for the XJ-S were the launch of the cabriolet in 1983 and later in May 1988 the convertible.
This 1991 example of a 3.6 litre XJ6 coupe was dry-stored from 1998 through to 2009, at which point it was recommissioned by the previous owner. Finished in me
