Midway through 1975 the successor to the E-type, the XJ-S, was unveiled to the waiting international press. Critics at the time did not feel this was a worthy successor to the E-type; however the very streamlined coupé managed to be in production for more than the next 20 years before itself was succeeded in 1996 by the stretched 2+2 GT. One thing everybody agreed upon was the car’s fabulous roadholding, applauding its high-speed cornering capability.
Over the years two big modifications were made to the XJ-S. Outwardly not much appeared to have changed with the first update in 1981, in 1991 the car was ready for a new decennial. The name badge became XJS instead of XJ-S. The car lines were smoother, the bumpers larger, rounder and colour-coded and the taillights were now flatter and wide. The ‘flying buttresses’ that characterise the splendid receding roofline with the concave rear window remained in a more tempered form. Its character did not change, which may explain why these XJ-S and XJS’s are quickly gaining in popularity, with the third series possibly being the best of the bunch.
The XJS you see before you is a very special one. It would be exceedingly difficult to find its equal in condition and version.
Let us start by taking a look at how this car has been designed. This very special XJS is one of only 64 hand finished by the professionals at Jaguar SVO (Special Vehicle Operations). The Insignia option was brought in to provide buyers the opportunity to select unique paint finishes, wheels and high-quality leather upholstery.
The first owner took possession on the 24 June 1994 and had chosen a wonderful combination of silver-grey paintwork with a light grey interior trim. Amazingly the two owners only clocked up 32,157 km between them in this marvellous and sought after 4.0 six-cylinder. The 4-speed automatic gearbox suits the powerful and supple engine down to the ground. All this makes this Jaguar into an unbelievably pleasant and comfortable Grand Tourer.
In reality the whole car is in pristine condition. Maybe superfluous to state, the 4 litre six-cylinder engine is the very same one it came with and therefore has matching numbers. Everything about this car looks and feels brand new, belying its actual age.
Step inside and inhale the smell of a new Jaguar. Looking around you definitely get the impression this car has never been in service. We would be surprised to discover anyone had sat on the back seats.
The splendid 4.0 is due to its extreme low mileage as good as new. Back then they did not tend to cover engine parts in lots of plastic, leaving us with a stunning view of the large engine block. It not lacking in power either with its 241 hp and 382 Nm of torque. On the one hand a comfortable GT and on the other hand this car turns into proper sportscar especially on long undulating runs. All booklets and paperwork is correctly stamped.
We are pretty sure there is no finer XJS around. This car is totally a one of a kind.
