1989 Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible

14,400 Mile Example

1989 Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible 

Finished in Arctic Blue Metallic with deep blue leather interior and a navy blue hood this very special XJS convertible has covered a mere 14,427 miles from new.

Codenamed ‘XJ27’, the car that would evolve into the XJ-S was styled by Malcolm Sayer, the man responsible for the E-Type, under the fatherly eye of Jaguar boss, Sir William Lyons.
Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Routier, rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of the Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 saloon platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its saloon siblings, the new model debuted at the 1976 Frankfurt Motor Show as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinders and a soft-top version following in the 1980s, the expected ban on open cars having failed to materialise. One of the most important developments in the evolution of the V12-powered XJ-S was the introduction of the HE (High Efficiency) engine in 1981. Incorporating a new design of cylinder head, this more fuel-efficient unit enabled the top-of-the-range XJ-S to meet tighter worldwide emissions legislation. The XJ-S would go on to become Jaguar’s best-selling sports car ever.

‘G245 WBY’ is offered for sale in exceptional condition throughout. Having covered so few miles the car presents and drives exactly as a near-new XJS ought to. 

Having been cared for through its life despite not travelling very far in recent years, the car is absolutely on the button and ready to be enjoyed. Not to be mistaken for a garage queen which needs recommissioning work. 

The car is accompanied by a healthy service record including a recent major service including spark plug change. 

To be sold freshly serviced again, and with a fresh MOT certificate.
