The XJ-S had been under development since 1968 and as a 2+2 fixed head coupe was intended as a replacement for the now legendary E-type. From the beginning it was only available with the V12 engine which gave excellent performance with 0-60mph being dispatched in a very respectable 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 150mph. Later in the XJ-S’s life it was also available with a six-cylinder engine and a manual gearbox.
This sought-after early example of the XJ-S, no to be confused with the later cars, is fitted with the preferred V12 engine. Described to be in excellent condition in almost all respects, this is a particularly special example due to its very original unmolested condition. Offered with a vast and comprehensive history file, recent work includes the fitment of a new AC system and fuel tank.
Being sold by a true Jaguar Drivers Club owner, this desirable specification and low-mileage example, finished in the very eye-catching colour combination of Rhodium silver over County Tan leather interior, has traveled a very modest and fully documented 49,000 miles from new.
Offered with a full 12 Month MOT.
