In 1975, Jaguar Cars introduced their pinnacle luxury grand tourer, and christened it the XJ-S, and it later became XJS. The XJS saw a long production run until 1996, when the XK8/XKR took over. In fact, the XJS was the two-door equivalent of the fine XJ luxury saloon. Whilst it was quite a swift seller during its heyday, a cared-for XJS is rather rarer today, which makes this 1990 Jaguar XJS Rouge a rather desirable option if quirky British grand tourers are your pick. Coming from Nevada, it’s got a relatively light 54,500 miles on it and is a convertible.
The styling of the XJS was penned by Malcolm Sawyer in the late Sixties, and it’s amazing how the design looked relevant well into the Nineties. This 1990 Jaguar XJS Rouge is a special edition that wears a distinctive Signal Red paint job with black convertible top. It’s got the North American-mandated headlamps and bumpers too. All badges are present and correct, and the chrome work beautifully gleams in the sunshine. Sporting a tan interior is one of the best ways to complement a bright red exterior, which this car proudly presents, especially with the top down. Two occupants can cruise in comfort on leather seats with red piping, as the convertible top mechanism does away with the rear seats. The gadget count is surprisingly comprehensive for a car of this vintage, and includes air conditioning, heated seats, a Jaguar stereo radio cassette, power mirrors, power windows, power door locks and push-button trip computer. A clear set of gauges face the driver with a 160mph speedometer and tachometer redlined at 6,500rpm, with four linear gauges in-between, signaling fuel level, engine coolant temperature, engine oil level and battery charge.
This 1990 Jaguar XJS Rouge sports the automaker’s iconic 5.3L V12 engine, known as the High Efficiency V12. Utilizing fuel injection, the engine sends out a very respectable 263hp to the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic gearbox. Braking is via disc brakes on all wheels. Recent maintenance has been reported on this car, as has a recent oil change.
