C264 XVC is a very interesting early Jaguar XJS 3. 6 Coupe with significant history and provenance. Our founder is one of Sir John Egan’s 100 UK Jaguar Dealer Principals from the mid-eighties. He was puzzled when first looking at this XJS. An early car with the original softer suspension, but on a C registration with 1987 model year seating – with the side bolsters on the seats and later wheels. Once we studied the history it started to make sense – here was a rather special and important car. According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, our December 1983 build XJS 3. 6 with its newly designed AJ6 engine left the Browns Lane factory in 1986. Finished in Regent Grey with Saville Grey leather upholstery with 5 speed manual transmission it was first registered to Jaguar Cars Ltd of Coventry on the 12th May 1986. Confirmed in writing by Jaguar, we know the XJS was then used by Jaguar themselves for display and promotional work and was driven by their Team Racing Driver Martin Brundle as his Company Car. The XJS also has the distinction of having the September 1987 sports seats, later alloy wheels and colour coded front spoiler. Martin Brundle is best known as a Formula One driver and commentator for ITV Sport, BBC and Sky Sports and whilst finishing a close second to Ayrton Senna in the 1983 British Formula Three Championship, the two progressed to Formula One the following year. Martin Brundle was the 1988 World Sportscar Champion and won the 1990 24 Hours Le Mans race for Jaguar Cars in a Jaguar XJR-12 and is an important figure in Jaguars racing history.
This Jaguar XJS has now covered 114, 000 miles from new and comes with a comprehensive service history and all original manuals, handbooks and original leather wallet. The first three services were all carried out at Browns Lane in Coventry at 1204, 9416 and 15583 miles in 1987. Jaguar main agents Grange Motors serviced the XJS at 18771 miles and then Caffyns Jaguar sold the car and serviced it twice at 23535 and 29652 miles. From 1991 to 1993 Barretts Jaguar in Canterbury serviced the car at 35228, 40119, 43936, 47790 and 51121 miles. A Canterbury based service garage stamped the book at 56804 miles in 1994 before one Wiltshire based Garage took on maintenance stamping the book and servicing the Jaguar at 65210, 67624, 70998, 74813, 79334, 82679, 85709 and 88385 miles in 2003. Extensive service and maintenance receipts accompany the car detailing the cars history from 88385 to the current mileage of 114, 000. Invoices from 2005 to 2007 from the North Wales Jaguar Centre total over £6, 000 for maintenance and upkeep (to include radius arm bushes, steering rack gaiters, manifold gaskets, o ring seals on manifolds, rocker gaskets, shocker bushes, replacement crankshaft pulley and woodruf key, new fuel lines, new traction control arms, new front and rear brake discs and various bodywork and paintwork in order to keep the car in great usable condition. From 2011 to 2015 and within the last 4000 miles in the region of £3000 has been spent with Lord's Motors in Lancashire for various maintenance and servicing and since then, very little mileage has been covered. More recently, the XJS has been treated to a complete outer re-spray costing £5000 and as result, the car now presents in exceptional condition.

C264 XVC has provenance, exceptional history and presents in lovely order. The Regent Grey paintwork is of a superb standard and the bodywork is in excellent order with bright, good quality chrome work. The sports leather seats are very original and superb, carpets excellent and the general presentation of the interior is of a remarkably high standard. The XJS has a clean well presented boot area, Jaguar tools are present and mechanically the Jaguar is in strong condition with a fabulous 3. 6 litre engine offering impressive performance. The five speed manual gearbox makes this model much more exciting to drive. Having had in the region of £14, 000 spent over the past 12, 000 miles, C264 XVC is a stunning, usable XJS that still offers excellent value in a market where XJS' prices seem to keep pushing upwards.
