Sold Jaguar XJS V12 1987

Jaguar XJS V12 1987



The XJ-S was Jag's most expensive car ever when it was launched putting it firmly in the Ferrari and Porsche bracket. This was intentional, as Jaguar wanted to move away from its bargain tag and appeal to a new buying base and keep E-type owners satisfied. It boasted all the right ingredients to make a great car. In its prime, the XJ-S was regarded as one of the world's greatest cars, thanks to the typical Jaguar blend of performance, comfort and refinement that decades on have hardly diminished. Being based upon the D-type racer, the E-type remains the purer sports car, but the XJ-S is a supreme GT and this cat laps up the miles with astonishing ease. Performance isn't an issue for this cat.
