*Believed to be the only Lynx Eventer with in-period TWR upgrades
*Full service history from new
*Engine re-built in 2012


If the XJS model range lacked, it was in not offering an estate version, and the Lynx Eventer met that demand for XJS customers craving more load space, but without sacrificing all that model's plus points. While 67 are believed to have been built this, the 35th, is thought to be the sole example with in-period TWR upgrades. The first owner was Raymond Burton, son of Montague Burton who founded the Burton men's outfitters retail group. The engine was converted (at 341 miles) to the larger 6.1-litre displacement which resulted in a maximum output of 380bhp. The car changed hands once from Raymond Burton to a Sheffield businessman, who in turn sold it to a classic dealer in 2010, after which it passed to the vendor. Restoration on the sound (but ready for work) car commenced in 2011, the body being refreshed and the chassis repaired and wax-injected. A big-bore stainless steel exhaust system was fitted. Inside new burr walnut was fitted and the headlining replaced. In 2012 the engine was stripped and re-built and at the same ancillaries such as the radiator, water pump and brake master cylinder were replaced. Subsequently used regularly but in a sparing manner, could this be the ultimate XJS?

As if Lynx Eventers were not already rare enough this example, fitted with a 6.1-litre TWR engine must surely rank among the rarest of all XJSs. With full service history it offers grace, pace – and space.
