Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Routier, rather than an out-and-out sportscar like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of the Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its saloon siblings, the XJ-S debuted as a V12-powered coupe, 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 - the XJ-S was the first model to receive Jaguar’s new 3.6-litre AJ6 engine - 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. In September 1989 a new 4.0-litre version of the AJ6 24-valve six was launched in the Xj6/XJ40 saloon. Delivering greater power and torque than the old 3.6-litre, the new unit first became available in the XJ-S in 1991.
A manual transmission model, this well maintained XJ-S 4.0-Litre Coupé has covered circa 97,300 miles from new and was acquired by the vendor’s father in February 2003. Since acquisition the vehicle has benefited from regular routine maintenance and comes with invoices totalling £2,120 for work carried out. The latter has included renewing suspension and subframe bushes, recharging the air conditioning system, retouching paint chips and scuffs, and refurbishing the wheels. The only departures from standard specification are parking sensors (fitted April 2004) and a CD player. Finished in red with cream doeskin interior, the vehicle is presented in generally excellent condition and offered with two expired MoTs, road fund licence/MoT to April 2006 and Swansea V5 registration document.
