The Jaguar XJS, a British luxury grand tourer, graced the automotive world from 1975 to 1996, earning its reputation for both distinctive styling and a formidable V12 engine. This captivating vehicle has been cherished by enthusiasts across the globe, with over 115,000 units produced during its time in the niche luxury car market. Now, the opportunity arises to claim ownership of this 1988 Jaguar XJS, a vehicle that stands out with its exceptionally low mileage. The current owner proudly reports a mere 16,288 miles on this seemingly all-original classic, making it a rare find for those who have been captivated by the allure of this distinctive model.
Cloaked in an elegant bluish-gray finish, the 1988 Jaguar XJS is the convertible variant, graced with eye-catching wire wheels and Pirelli P4000 tires. Its contrasting black convertible top presents a striking visual contrast. Whether cruising with the top down or up, the XJS's timeless elongated silhouette is sure to capture attention, accompanied by the characteristic burble of the V12 engine emanating from the twin stock exhaust pipes at the rear. Inside, the gray-themed cabin exudes an air of sophistication and class. The interior is adorned with wood trim and features power-adjustable seats, power windows, and power mirrors. Practical modern conveniences such as cruise control and air conditioning are at your disposal, with the latter reportedly in working condition. The center console hosts a trip computer capable of displaying various information. A radio cassette player is included, although the current owner notes that the cassette player is not functioning. Twin ashtrays and a cigar lighter pay homage to the automotive trends of the Eighties when smoking in cars was commonplace. The cigar lighter can also serve as a 12v power socket with the appropriate adapter for charging devices. The trunk is similarly clean, housing a neatly tucked spare tire.
The 5.3L V12 engine beneath the hood of the 1988 Jaguar XJS is a source of delight, offering a wealth of power that beckons you to seize every driving opportunity. In the North American market, it produced approximately 263 horsepower. Drive is efficiently managed by a smooth three-speed automatic transmission, delivering power to the rear wheels. All-around disc brakes ensure reliable stopping performance. The current owner has noted that the rear transmission seal requires replacement, a task that can help ensure the vehicle's continued dependability and performance.
