1990 Jaguar XJ-S V12 Coupé

Vendor supplied images


  • Refinished in its original red to a good standard
  • Offered with a CARFAX report, detailing its US history
  • Smartly presented throughout and free from notable signs of age

The Appeal

Replacing the legendary E-Type in 1975, the XJ-S was intended to be Jaguar’s ultimate grand tourer - the sort of car to cross Continental Europe with “grace, space and pace”. The most impressive was the V12, which could deliver immense performance with unparalleled smoothness. 
This US-spec 1990 example looks to be in very good order for its age and the vendor assures us that it’s corrosion-free. Originally supplied to Oklahoma and recently imported from Arizona, the XJ-S history is reportedly well-known via an accompanying CARFAX report and the vendor states all import duties and VAT costs have been paid. 
While a period of recent inactivity suggests the car would benefit from a service, we’re told that it drives well, making this an excellent opportunity for Jaguar enthusiasts.
