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. As with any vehicle that has had as long a production life as the XJ-S there have been major developments. One of the more significant ones for the XJ-S was the launch of the convertible in May 1988.
This beautiful example was delivered new in 1986 to its one and only owner by Creamers of Kensington, finished in Alpine Green with a Doeskin leather interior. In the intervening years the XJ-S has covered a mere 36,000 miles – this stunning Jaguar is offered with a current MOT certificate and related service records from new.
