Lot 358: 1989 Jagaur XJS V12 Convertible

Auto Moto D'Epoca, Coys (19 November 2005)

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 XJS has covered very little mileage having been purchased by its first owner as a weekend car. He used the car sparingly on Jaguar events. An article featuring this car appeared in a 2000 edition of "Routeclassiche" magazine. It is presented in remarkably preserved condition. The car has been recently serviced and is fitted with 4 new tyres. Questa XJS ha percorso pochi chilometri, essendo stata usata dal primo proprietario solamente nei fine settimana. La Vettura ha partecipato a diversi raduni della marca. E' stata oggetto di un dettagliato articolo sulla rivista "Ruoteclassiche" nel 2000. Si presenta in perfetto stato di conservazione, stata di recente sottoposta ad una completa revisione meccanica ed equipaggiata con quattro pneumatici nuovi.
