The Jaguar XJ-S is a luxury grand tourer manufactured from 1975 to 1996.

The styling was by Jaguar's pioneering aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer — one of the first designers to apply advanced aero principles to cars. Sayer died just before the XJ-S body styling was frozen for production.

After a difficult start, the Jaguar XJ-S eventually became a true classic in the canon of British grand-tourers…and this is one of Browns Lane’s finest.


 This one ticks all the boxes, as follows:
  NZ New
  Two Owners
  Rare in Manual transmission – in 1983, the new 3.6-litre six-cylinder-engined cars were only available with a five-speed manual transmission (Getrag 265).
  3.6 ltr Straight 6, so easy to live with. These 3.6-litre AJ6 six-cylinder engines arrived in 1983, before the model received a facelift in 1991.
  Factory unrestored condition – STUNNING CONDITION for age
  Low Mileage
  Drives Superbly – feels pretty much like new.
  Complete with operating manuals etc
 Inside, the car is surprisingly cosy, yet still provides enough room for the driver and front passenger to sit comfortably. With an attentive suspension setup, it’s no surprise that the XJ-S ride is as smooth as your favourite easy chair too.
 The performance is equally refined. Jabbing on the accelerator off the line has the XJ-S easing gracefully away, with plenty of poise but very little fever – it feels heavy because it is heavy. Once up and rolling however, the hefty engines exhibit a satisfying depth of power. All six cylinders reach 60mph in about 8.5 seconds, going on to reach 140mph.
 As a tool for travelling long distances in comfort, the XJ-S has few peers. Used in the manner to which it is accustomed, an XJ-S offers an excellent balance of conduct, be it pootling around town or cruising on the motorway.
 The XJ-S replaced the legendary E-type in Jaguar’s range. As well as being great to drive, it introduced new standards of passenger safety, with impact-absorbing bumpers on special struts, side-impact barriers built into the doors and a fuel tank mounted directly behind the rear seats to protect it from rear damage.

The XJ-S is now a fixture on the classic scene. Finding a good one can take time and if its a manual you’re after, there aren’t plenty to choose from. Get a decent one like this one and you’ll have an extraordinary machine.
