Footnotes

  • Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grande Routière rather than an out-and-out sports car 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 coupé, 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 and much more economical 3.6-litre AJ6 engine - enabled it to weather the storm.

    An automatic transmission model, this 3.6-litre XJ-S comes with full service history (mostly main dealer) to 119,000 miles and currently displays a total of circa 123,000 miles on the odometer. Very well maintained throughout its life, 'G236 APP' boasts refurbished alloy wheels shod with new Pirelli tyres, and is described as in generally very good condition, driving well, with a clean, straight body and very tidy interior. Finished in Diamond Blue metallic with oatmeal leather upholstery, the car comes complete with the aforementioned service history, full tool kit (in case), handbooks, sundry expired MoT certificates, current road fund licence, Swansea V5 document and MoT to September 2013.
