Footnotes

  • Jaguar's first response to demands for an open-top XJ-S was somewhat conservative in engineering terms. The XJ-S had not been designed with an open version in mind, so a Targa-style arrangement was adopted, which retained a substantial roll hoop in the interests of maintaining rigidity in the absence of a fixed roof. Having demonstrated that there was indeed sufficient demand to justify production of an open XJ-S, Jaguar grasped the nettle and proceeded to develop a conventional full convertible. For the latter they turned for assistance to coachbuilders Karmann in Osnabruck, a firm with considerable expertise in the manufacture of open cars. As well as developing the host of new panels and associated tooling required, Karmann also designed the hood, which was electro-hydraulically operated and featured a full lining and glass rear window complete with heating element. At first the Convertible was only available with the 5.3-litre V12 engine but following the introduction of a 4.0-litre version of the AJ6 24-valve six in the XJ6/XJ40 saloon, this new unit became available in the XJ-S from 1991.

    This automatic-transmission XJ-S 4.0-Litre Convertible is currently SORN'd and will require re-commissioning before returning to the road. The car is described as in generally good condition, though the offside wing requires extensive repairs. Sold strictly as viewed, it comes with Swansea V5 document and is offered without reserve.
