The Jaguar XJ-S and latterly the XJS, was produced by Jaguar from 1975 to 1996. 115,413 cars were produced during a 21-year production life. Although it never had quite the same sporting image as the E-Type, the XJS was a competent grand touring car, and more aerodynamic than the E-Type.
By 1989 more XJ-S variants had been produced and sold than E-Types but by 1990 sales were beginning to dip so the car was re-launched as the XJS following what was understood to be a £50 million investment programme. The XJS had almost an entirely new body-shell, which was easier to produce and galvanised. In April 1994, substantial revisions were made to the 4.0-litre AJ6 engine which became the 4.0-litre AJ16 with coil-on-plug ignition.
Our example was first registered in August 1994 (M Reg) and is finished in Kingfisher Blue with Magnolia. the specification includes: Electric Windows, Automatic Transmission, Air Conditioning and Electrically Adjustable Seats. The Service History shows Eleven Jaguar Man Dealer Service History Stamps to 100,000 miles in 2006. This car, from information made available to us, has been for all intents and purposes been laid up since 2007/8 and although she fired up with ease following a few preparatory checks we are carrying out a full re-commissioning overhaul. The extent of works done will be recorded for the new owner.
If you are contemplating XJS ownership you will already know that the post 1991cars are the ones to have either along with the last Celebration models. Values have really started to gather momentum in 2018. In our opinion this example provides a very worthwhile ownership proposition.
