1988 Jaguar XJS 3.6

1988 Jaguar XJS 3.6



Being in the vanguard is always an honor. Leading it is an uncommon distinction.

Jaguar has carried this distinction in forty years of building superb high-performance motor cars.

And while Jaguar have always been known for their extraordinary handling ability, the XJS stands out dramatically, even among Jaguars.


  • Five (5) owners from new with one lady owner for 19 years.
  • The suspension on these cars is amazing¦Its taut but not hard and the geometry is accurate.
  • The superb handling of this XJS is matched by its depth of quiet luxury.
  • The emphasis is on refinement, complete silence, luxury, comfort and general opulence.
  • Immaculate Condition Throughout
  • Rare and Stunning in white with red leather interior
  • Mechanically sound – Good healthy motor
  • Immaculate body and paint
  • Immaculate Interior
  • Very well serviced and maintained Vehicle
  • One of the best examples in New Zealand.

Almost every Jaguar has been a break through in design or performance, or both, and this high performance luxury car has earned its heritage - what we have here is a guaranteed upcoming classic.

Over the past 10 years, the value of classic and luxury cars, has increased by 467 per cent. To put this incredible performance in perspective, this compares with a rise of just 111 per cent in the top end of the London residential market.

The best investment strategy is purchasing the ‘right' brand of classic car, as only certain quality brands will hold value, including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and, of course, Jaguar.

Cars from the 1970s to 1990s are beginning to be seen as ‘young' or ‘modern' classics, ideal for long-term investment. According to current market trends, prices are set to rise considerably.

The XJS, created in 1976 in the shadow of the E-type, quickly won over enthusiasts and achieved a long production run, appearing in numerous TV shows over the years, including The Saint. The car's instantly recognisable lines have cemented its iconic status and ensured lasting appeal.

As well as the beauty, driving experience and nostalgia-factor of the XJS, the potential for returns on investment has also been widely documented. Many are now starting to recognise the significance of the XJS¦which can only mean good things for value growth in the long term.

Buy a good XJS like this one and you'll have an appreciating classic. Old Jags are in demand so clearly, there are compelling reasons to purchase an XJS now, as more and more investors catch on to its appeal and prices continue to soar.

Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.

Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.

Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.

We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.

For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at info@waimakclassiccars.co.nz anytime.
