The XJS is a British luxury grand tourer built from the late '70s until 1996 by British car manufacturer Jaguar cars. The Jaguar's unique look gave it quick popularity, and the XJS played a role in such hit TV and Film series such as The New Avengers and Return of The Saint. Production of the XJS lasted nearly 21 years, and a total of just over 115,000 of these magnificent machines were built. Our subject car, a final-year 1996 Jaguar XJS 2+2 Convertible, resides in California, awaiting its new owner.
The car captured the eye of car enthusiasts immediately thanks to its rear flying buttresses. The initial styling of this big cat was partially influenced by aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer, one of the first designers to apply advanced aero principles to cars. The exterior of this Jag comes in Signal Red, with chrome trim running along the bumpers, grille, windshield frame, and side mirrors. The beige soft-top roof is in excellent condition and works flawlessly for when you want to feel the wind in your hair. This car's interior looks brand new, with an elegant beige theme giving it a look of Jaguar luxury. The dash panel, gearbox, and door panels include a fine wood finish and is an interesting contrast to the original beige leather bucket seats. A 6-disc CD changer has also been fitted in to ensure you have an entertaining drive.
This Big cat includes a naturally-aspirated inline-6 piston, 4L AJ6 engine with an output of 238 hp to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission. The car has been recently fitted with a brand new battery and comes with the original owner's manual and paperwork.
