1991 Jaguar XJS 5.3 V12 Convertible


  • Good service history and low mileage
  • Good original condition throughout
  • Specialist maintained and fettled last 7 years


The Jaguar XJS was very much a luxurious Grand Tourer rather than a sportscar. Its ride is fabulously smooth and provides driver and occupants with fast, silent and effortless motoring on both short and long journeys.

This beautiful big convertible cat has the favoured Jaguar V12 engine and is clearly an XJS that has been very well cared for over its life and presents itself extremely well being in excellent health and shape.

Always a great favourite of the classic car enthusiast and collector the Jaguar has a special place in British motoring history. 
Obviously garaged and well cared for from day one this is a very nicely presented and mechanically sound example of the magnificent XJS V12, with a convertible roof as the icing on the cake.

Being in such fine original condition with very low mileage it will make a very usable car that can be enjoyed on a daily basis if required as well as being a classic Jaguar, the demand for which is very unlikely to ever fade.
