On a NOVACertificate with all duties paidThis is a serious collectors car and guided very sensibly to ensure good interestJaguars famous win at Le Mans in 1990 in the classic purple and white, Silk Cut livery not only secured their prominence in Group C Sportscars but also launched celebrations at Browns Lane culminating in the decision to celebrate with a lowproductionXJ-S Le Mans edition. Limited to 280 cars, withbespokefeatures which included twin headlights, latticealloy wheels, sports suspension, embossed Autolux seating and a special numbered plaque on each sill. Naturally, with the low numbers available and the desirable specification, they sold out quickly and continue to remain sought-after.H749 YUC was first registered on the 04/01/1991 by Stratstones of Mayfairand was duly exported on the 9th of January to a sunnier climate where it remained until September 2019. Finished in Solent Blue ( M715 ) and with a complementing Cream leather interior and piped in Isis Blue. The interior specification from new was as follows;Soft-grain Leather Seating, Black Steering Wheel, Warm Charcoal Facia, Doeskin Headlining and a Coffee Carpet.This truly stunning example of the marque has covered a mere 24,000 miles from new and is suppliedwith its original book pack containingthe owner's handbook and the service book showing good evidence of its maintenance whilst it has been abroad by its (believed) one owner. Arriving back to our shores during 2019, the car was treated to a fullservice in December of last year making sure that the Le Mans was good to go and readyfor a new owner. The car was also MOTd with 'No Advisories' in November of last year.Currently, the Jaguaris on a NOVACertificate with all duties paid, meaning that the new owner will be the first listed onthe V5, and we also understandthat the car will be allocated its original registration of H749 YUC keeping its provenance intact. This is a superb example of a rare model and in this condition and at this low mileage would graceany collection and be much admired at Jaguar events.
