Footnotes

  • Styled by Malcolm Sayer, the man responsible for the E-Type, and conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Routier rather than an out-and-out sports car like its predecessor, 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 USA's expected ban on open cars having failed to materialise. Although more refined than the E-Type, the XJ-S in its V12-powered form was no slouch, as evidenced by a 0-60mph time of 6.7 seconds and a top speed in excess of 150mph. The XJ-S 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.

    This very early XJ-S V12 represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire an appreciating future classic at relatively modest cost. A manual transmission model finished in yellow with black leather interior, 'PHM 218R' has covered a guaranteed genuine 10,500 miles from new in the hands of its sole owner. Described as in generally good condition, the car comes with owner's manual, old-style logbook, sundry invoices and photographs, Swansea V5, fresh MoT and a letter from the owner.
