JAGUAR XJS 6.0 V12 CONVERTIBLE - LHD
The Jaguar XJ-S and latterly the XJS, was produced by Jaguar from 1975 to 1996. 115,413 cars were produced during a 21-year production life and although it never had quite the same sporting image as the E-Type, the XJS was a competent grand touring car, and more aerodynamic than the E-Type.
By 1989 more XJS variants had been produced and sold than E-Types but by 1990 sales were beginning to dip so the car was re-launched as the XJS following what was understood to be a £50 million investment programme. The XJS had almost an entirely new body-shell, which was easier to produce and galvanised. The XJS V12's capacity was enlarged from 5.3 to 6.0 Litres in May 1992 and it now produced over 300 bhp. At the same time the car benefited from a revision to the rear brakes, they were now fitted with outboard rear disc brakes, instead of the more complicated inboard items on previous models. The transmission was also updated to a GM 4L80E with a fourth-gear overdrive.
There were only a total of 81 6.0 Litre XJS Convertible's made and this car is one of only 11 produced in its final run and was built in 1995 and sold new in California where it has spent all of its life. The current English owner who was living in Carmel, California bought the car in June 2017 and brought it back with him to the UK earlier this year.
