This is a 1986 Jaguar XJS-C HE, finished in dark grey with a grey leather interior. The car presents beautifully inside and out and has done 54,000 miles from new.

Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grande Routière rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of the Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its saloon siblings, the XJ-S debuted as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinder and soft-top versions following in the 1980s. The car's 150mph performance was not achieved without penalty however, its prodigious thirst causing sales to nosedive as oil prices soared. However, the arrival of the HE (High Efficiency) V12 in 1981 and the introduction of the smaller six - the XJ-S was the first model to receive Jaguar's new and much more economical 3.6-litre AJ6 engine - enabled it to weather the storm.

The leather interior is in great condition as are the removable roof panels and soft top. The alloy wheels are later, lattice-style examples which look fantastic and all the electronics on the car function as they should. 

The car comes in a great colour, has 5 previous owners and flew through an MoT with no advisories in November 2021.
