1988 Jaguar XJ-S V12 Convertible
Chassis no. SAJJNADW4DP149381
Engine no. 176624115
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 debuted in 1975 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 smaller six 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. The XJ-S had not been designed with an open version in mind, so the Targa-style arrangement was adopted, which retained a substantial roll hoop in the interests of maintaining rigidity in the absence of a fixed roof. Following the Cabriolet's deletion, both the Coupé and conventional Convertible models lasted until the end of XJ-S production in 1996.

This automatic transmission XJ-S V12 Convertible was purchased by the current owner in 2005 and has covered 154,000 kilometres from new. Finished in dark blue with matching soft-top and off-white leather interior, the car features BBS alloy wheels and is described as in generally good/very good condition. Accompanying documentation consists of Austrian registration papers and bills of sale to the current and previous owners.

No reserve.
