Peter Vardy Heritage is privileged to present what is undoubtedly the most original,low mileage XJS V12 Convertible on sale today.
If 1980's styling is what you desire, then the XJS Convertible ticks the right boxes, and if you want a modern classic that delivers an enjoyable driving experience with the ability to get you to your destination quickly and in style, then this car has it in abundance.
The XJS Convertible, which first appeared in 1988 at a price of £36,000, was considerably more than merely a coupé with the roof removed. The earlier 'T'-top cabriolet paved the way as the first open Jaguar since the demise of the E-Type in 1975, but this was to be the first full convertible and a strengthened sub-frame was employed in order to alleviate scuttle shake. It looked superb and elegant with the hood erect or folded and finally met the demands of the highly valued North American market. Retaining the roomy cockpit space of the coupé, the new convertible boasted a useful shelf for excess luggage and all the expected Jaguar refinements as standard. It made for a very fine open top grand touring car, exceeding the specification of other home-grown machinery and represented far greater value than the equivalent high-profile Mercedes SL.
This stunning XJS convertible was registered on the 4th April 1989 and is finished in Glacier White and complimented with Mulberry Leather Interior and a black mohair hood. Having covered a mere 16041 miles, it presents exceptionally well.The Service Record and historical MOTs that come with this example serve corroborate its infrequent use and subsequent low mileage.There is a hood cover for the roof when it's folded down which looks to be in fine condition, along with the toolkit and all of the relevant and original manuals in their book pack.
Today, the XJS V12 is very much establishing itself as a most worthy latter-day classic,with superb and low mileage examples, such as this one, being few and far between, and therefore eagerly sought by connoisseurs of the marque.
This is a beautiful, original and unrestored example which is perfect for graceful open top weekend motoring, or which would doubtlessly represent an excellent addition for any collector.
