THE JAGUAR XJS

Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged grand tourer, rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJS made use of the Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 saloon platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its saloon siblings, the XJS debuted as a V12-powered coupe, with six-cylinder and soft-top versions following in the 1980s. The car's 150mph (240km/h) 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 the 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.

Jaguar's first response to demands for an open-top XJS was somewhat conservative in engineering terms. The XJS 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. Essentially an exercise in niche marketing to test public reaction, the Cabriolet was entrusted to outside specialist contractors for construction, with bodyshells being transported back and forth across the Midlands before returning to the Brown's Lane factory prior to final dispatch. Following the Cabriolet's deletion, both the Coupe and conventional Convertible models lasted until the end of XJS production in 1996.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautiful XJS Convertible was completed at the Coventry-based Jaguar works in December of 1994, as a 1995 model-year car. The new Drophead Jaguar was fitted with the 4.0-Liter inline six engine and destined for the US market. The CARFAX report on file keeps good track of the miles up to this day and lists many service and maintenance visits too. Most recently, the XJS was serviced by an experienced Jaguar technician in the Atlanta, GA area, where new Michelin tires were fitted. Showing less than 48,000 miles on the odometer, the refined and understated looks of this open tourer are sure to continue to gain collectability and offer an effortless cruising experience for decades to come.
