1989 Jaguar XJS 5.3 V12 Coupe Automatic For Sale In London (LHD) Absolutely stunning example European delivered new Complete book pack and original?tools Perfect LHD Grand Tourer The last of the inspired Sir William Lyons Big Cats Will simply not disappoint?upon viewing Design plans for the XJS got underway in 1965, with the first production car being sold in 1975. The car was primarily designed by Malcolm Sayer, with input and control from Sir William Lyons. With Jaguar struggling financially at the time, the XJS needed to be a big success.The highly anticipated XJS was seen by many as a direct replacement to the very popular E-Type. However, when the XJS was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1976, it was clear that the car was intended to be in a league of its own. Externally, the XJS is most noticeable for its flying buttresses, sweeping from the top of the rear roofline down to the rear of the wings. Although initially widely criticised, this design gave the XJS an excellent drag coefficient better than the E-Type, and allowing the XJS to reach speeds of comfortably over 150mph. John Egan led a major drive to improve build quality, performance and boost the public perception of the car. These improvements were a huge success, and within three years production was up by 400% while the company turned a loss of ?47.3 million into a profit of ?50 million. Financial woes and Jaguars saviour; Initial sales were slow, with just 1245 units produced in 1975. In 1974 things took a turn for the worse, as sales began to trail off dramatically and just 1057 cars were sold. Jaguar bosses held a crisis summit to review the car's future and decided whether to drop the model from its line-up for good. Thankfully for the XJS, a saviour was found in the form of John Egan, Jaguar's newly appointed manager, who earned the company, and the car, a stay of execution.?The XJS sent out a strong message to its competitors: Jaguar was serious about expanding its range, serious about modernising, and serious about making cars. The car maker continued developing its GT and a sports handling pack for the 3.6-litre engine went on sale in 1987, followed by a full convertible in 1988. The XJS had helped turn Jaguar around.
