Footnotes

  • The introduction of the six-cylinder XJ-S in 1983 coincided with that of the Targa-style cabriolet: the first open Jaguar since the E-Type's discontinuation. 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 the Targa arrangement was adopted, which retained a substantial roll hoop in the interests of maintaining rigidity in the absence of a fixed roof. Essentially an exercise in niche marketing to test public reaction, the Cabriolet was judged to have been a success and was joined in 1988 by a full convertible. 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 Kingsley's company car from new, and was used in that role until replaced in 1998. Kingsley then purchased the Jaguar and used it for a further year or so, since when it has been stored. Recently re-commissioned it is reported as running and driving well the only aspect of the car which does not seem to be working is the air conditioning. However having been in store for so long it is likely further re-commissioning will be required, the car comes with sundry bills and a V5 registration document. A total of circa 130,000 miles is currently displayed on the odometer.
