"1975 saw the launch of the Jaguar XJS. In a year that Margaret Thatcher was made the leader of the Conservative party and petrol was 70p/gallon, the new car from Jaguar was introduced as the replacement for the iconic E Type. During an astonishing build run of 21 years, 115,413 units were produced by the Coventry manufacturer. The final, more aerodynamic version of the XJS was introduced in 1991. With a more efficient engine and subtle design changes this version was available until production ceased in 1991
This handsome looking facelift model XJS presents well in the classic Jaguar combination of Flamenco Red with a Doeskin leather interior. The service book for this Jaguar shows an impressive 19 stamps and receipts totaling £5,500 spent during the vendor’s tenure. He tells us that this Jaguar has been used regularly and has proven to be very reliable. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and, the current owner informs us, a fresh MoT test certificate. This XJS, offered at no reserve, is an attractive and affordable modern classic."
