Chassis no. SAJNW484XNC184115
With E-Type sales falling, Jaguar addressed the problem of defining its successor as the 1960s drew to a close. Code named ‘XJ27’, the car that would evolve into the XJ-S was styled by Malcolm Sayer, the man responsible for the E-Type, under the fatherly eye of Jaguar boss, Sir William Lyons. Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Tourer, rather than an out-and-out sports car, the XJ-S made use of the Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 saloon platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its saloon siblings, the XJ-S debuted at the 1976 Frankfurt Motor Show as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinder and soft-top versions following in the 1980s. The XJ-S in its many versions would go on to become Jaguar’s best-selling sports car ever, well in excess of 115,000 being made up the time production ceased in April 1996.

The example offered is a 1992 model year convertible of the 5.3 liter V12 powered car in Opalescent Silver Blue with a dark blue leather interior with burr walnut accents and dash. This two-owner from new car is in excellent original condition, and shows an original 76,000 miles from new. The car comes with a complete set of original tools and is offered on a Washington title with current registration.
