1990 Jaguar XJ-S Convertible, V12, 5343cc. Registration number G43 LHD. VIN number SAJJNADW3DB168440. Engine 8S073664SB.
On the 10 September 1975 Jaguar revealed the XJS to the world. The car was aimed squarely at the Mercedes SL customers and to help lure customers away from the German marque, it was priced at nearly £2,000 less on launch.
From July 1981, the XJ-S was renamed the XJ-S HE and received the new High-Efficiency V12 engine for much better fuel economy, power output was increased as a by-product to 295 hp.
In 1986 the XJ-SC targa convertible was introduced, it was not a full convertible but was a fixed profile variant with a non-removable centre targa-type structure, it was never a great success and was replaced by a two-seat full convertible in 1988 which proved to be a great hit.
LHD is a Regency Red example with cream leather interior and burr walnut wood cappings. There is MOT history on file going back to 2006 at 71,2890 miles, 2011 at 71,621 miles and then it was sold by auction as part of a deceased estate sale. It is believed to have been in storage between 1998 and 2006. Unfortunately the service history was not included with the car. Our vendor added it to his stable in 2017, with a mileage of 71,651, where it has lived in a heated garage.
Unused it has been recommissioned and a new MOT obtained in August 2022 at 71,649 miles.
Sold with the V5C, current MOT and a copy of the earlier ones mentioned.
