Description

"The Jaguar XJS is a luxury grand tourer produced by the British manufacturer Jaguar from 1975 to 1996. The XJS replaced the legendary E-Type in September 1975 and was based on the XJ saloon. Although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJS was a competent replacement with better aerodynamics than the E-Type and was last produced on 4th April, 1996 by which time 115,413 had been produced during a 21 year production life. The car was re-engineered in May 1991 and renamed XJS (facelift). The rear side windows appeared enlarged and the buttresses stayed, although their appearance was minimised by the new side window treatment, as designer Geoff Lawson argued that they were part of the car's character. The car received a new 4.0 litre version of the AJ6 engine. At the same time, the car benefitted from a revision to the rear brakes; they were now fitted with outboard rear disc brakes, instead of the more complicated inboard items on previous models. It also received a more aerodynamic front and rear bumpers.
Imported from Japan, this lovely example is presented in the most desirable of colour combination of metallic blue with grey leather interior. Its smooth 4.0 litre V8 is mated to an automatic gearbox and was last serviced by the Jag Workshop in October 2018. The car comes with air conditioning and electric windows and is still as elegant looking today as it was when manufactured."
