And still they appear - straight from Jaguar's inner sanctum having covered just 291 miles!


Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged 'Grand Tourer', rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of Jaguar's extensively developed XJ6/XJ12 saloon platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its four-door siblings, the XJ-S debuted at the 1976 Frankfurt Motor Show as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinder and soft top versions following in the 1980s, the expected ban on open cars having failed to materialise. One of the most important developments in the evolution of the V12-powered XJ-S was the introduction of the HE (High Efficiency) engine in 1981. Incorporating a new design of cylinder head, this more fuel-efficient unit enabling the top-of-the-range XJ-S to meet tighter worldwide emissions legislation. The long-lived XJ-S would go on to become Jaguar's best-selling sports car ever, with well in excess of 115,000 finding homes by the time production ceased in April 1996.

Remaining with Jaguar since the day of its production on 21st September 1994, this manual gearbox, 4.0-litre, six-cylinder car is a rare find indeed. 'Unique' is a word frequently misused, however, in this case, it seems appropriate, as we can't believe there can be too many 29-year-old XJS' in this condition having covered just 291 miles from new! It's finished in Black with a Nimbus Grey leather interior and black soft top and presents in the condition you would expect for the indicated mileage, even retaining some of that distinctive new car smell. The original books, manuals and service book are all present. The car has been part of a private collection within Jaguar and has never been sold or even registered, however the time has now come for a new owner to acquire this amazing, 291 miles from new, time-warp example. One for the 'true' collector, this is an opportunity not to be missed. Offered with fresh MOT.
