A unique ‘time warp’ Jaguar XJS 4.0 Convertible with full history.

There are a number of these cars within the market place but, this example MUST be seen to be appreciated. Stunning in every aspect and fastidiously maintained. We are privileged to offer this significant and somewhat unique motor car to the market place which is likely to appeal to any Jaguar aficionado and collector.

EQUIPMENT – Chrome radiator grille, wrap-round chrome bumper, growler radiator badge, power assisted steering, hand matched walnut facia, on board trip computer, individual front ashtrays, cigar lighter, push-push switches, map reading lamp, electric windows, lockable glove box, central locking, cruise control, electric driver’s and passenger seats, adjustable steering wheel, heated rear screen. After market features: front fogs, discrete rear park sensors with interior digital reader, battery immobiliser, unique windbreaker.

EXTERIOR – This is an original European specification vehicle finished in Jet Black with the quad headlamps and US style third brake light added in the 1990’s. Karmann’s contribution to the XJS model is well documented and no one can deny this drop dead gorgeous design which still turns heads wherever you go – from both young and old. The ‘facelift’ revised rear light cluster compliment the black exterior with all chrome work beautifully preserved. The mohair hood is tight and in wonderful condition as is the rear toneau cover. The quality chrome Boot Rack is a discerning addition.

INTERIOR – The black leather is just a great place to sit and enjoy the environment. The seats are firm and have been rarely sat in confirming the low mileage. The switchgear operates correctly; the burr walnut veneers and matching in-lays are as they should be when leaving the factory. The silver grey headlining is in wonderful condition and appears tight with no sagging but, come on, get that hood down!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION – The 4.0 AJ6 engine, 4 speed automatic electronic ZF4HP24E transmission cruises beautifully with 238 bhp with the 137 mph quoted figures easily achievable but also propel the car from 0-60 in 7.4 seconds. The engine bay is nicely detailed and far more accessible that it’s V12 predecessor.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES – The factory fitted chrome 5 spoke 16” sports alloys are in perfect condition and are stunning against the black exterior. All four corners are shod in Pirelli P600 225/55 ZR16 tyres with new tread. The electronically controlled anti-lock braking system with YAW control grips relentlessly to all four discs offering safe, consistent and predictable stopping power.

HISTORY FILE –. Registered new on the 27th July 1992 this example covered 49,000 km’s in its first 3 years. Used sparingly thereafter, with 26,500 km’s in the next 20 years (an average of 1300 km’s per year). It’s been maintained by the last owner who has cherished the car for the last 15 years: used only in summer, weather permitting, it has been cherished in every way confirming the cars mileage and superb condition.
