Here we have a very nice example of a rising star in the classic car world. It is a 1991 Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible, finished in Dark Red Metallic with Cream Leather interior, it is one of the very last pre-facelift cars on an H-Reg. It has covered 107k Miles from new and is in a very nice condition with much money being spent on it over the years.

Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Routier, rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of the Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 saloon 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 enabled it to weather the storm. The introduction of the six-cylinder model in 1983 coincided with that of the Targa-style Cabriolet - the first open Jaguar since the E-Type's discontinuation - but it was not until 1988 that a full convertible became available. Following the Cabriolet's deletion, both the Coupé and conventional Convertible models lasted until the end of XJ-S production in 1996.

Our cas has the desirable US Headlight conversion and has had 8 owners from new. It was supplied new by Paramount Jaguar in Derby to its first owner, Watershed Pictures Ltd. In Putney Bridge Road. It has 21 Stamps in the service book and a nice history folder, it has a long MOT and is ready for its next proud owner.
