THE XJRS MODEL IS DESCRIBED AS BELOW ..
The Jaguar XJS design, codenamed XJ27, started around 1965 with the first production car being sold in 1975. It was primarily designed by Malcolm Sayer with input and control from Sir William Lyons. Although the public assumed the Jaguar XJS was a successor to the very popular E-Type it was in fact intended to be very different. It would be comfortable and luxurious, less a sports car than a sports tourer. This allowed it to use the same suspension layout as the recently introduced and supremely cosseting Jaguar XJ6. Externally the Jaguar XJS is most noticeable for its 'flying buttresses'; sweeping from the top of the rear roofline down to the rear of the wings. It also gave the quite large Jaguar XJS an excellent drag coefficient, better than the E-Type and allowing the XJS easily to attain over 150mph. In 1983 Jaguar introduced a completely new 3.6 litre straight six engine with four valves per cylinder. Almost every Jaguar has been a breakthrough in design or performance, or both, and this high performance luxury car has earned its heritage.
The XJRS model was developed by Tom Walkinshaw Racing and include a body kit, tailored rear bumper with exhaust exit apertures, rear integrated fog lights and a rear spoiler. G221 ATR has had a full chrome delete completed by TWR,
