This magnificent 1994 Jaguar XJ-S 6.0 Litre 2+2 Convertible is presented in a stunning colour combination of Flamenco Red over an Oatmeal leather trim and matching red folding power soft top. This timeless Jaguar is becoming increasingly rare, British engineering at its best and built to cruise around with style and supreme elegance.
One of the best XJ-S Convertibles in the country, this example offered here - chassis number 194517 - is certified by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, the first owner was Jaguar Cars Limited who used the car as a Company Vehicle Press Car. Owned as part of a personal collection this car has barely been used with only 49,670 miles from new, making it a real time capsule and collector’s example.
The XJS was born under the stewardship of legendary Jaguar Design Engineer Michael Sayer who played a major role in the design of the E-Type and the unique style is a nod to the heritage and history of the Jaguar brand. One of the all-time great engine/chassis combinations ensured that it was one of only a handful of vehicles to attain genuine classic car status while still in production. The XJ-S was relaunched in its final form in May 1991 with updated styling most noticeable at the front and rear. The main interior change was to the instrument pack. In 1992 the V12 was enlarged to 6.0-litres delivering 304 bhp through a four-speed automatic gearbox with overdrive.
As you sit on the soft leather driver seat you are instantly welcomed by beautiful woodgrain everywhere, reminding you what makes British cars so charming and lovable. The interior is filled with power options including electric memory seats, cruise control, CD Changer, electric windows, power locks, power soft top and air conditioning.
Under the front-hinged bonnet, the engine bay presents in a neat and tidy condition. The huge V12 starts and runs well with a powerful but understated roar, the ancillaries all but fill the space and everything is in good order as expected from a car that’s been continuously well maintained.
The service book shows stamps from Jaguar main dealers and renowned specialists up to 47,135 miles and is supported with a comprehensive maintenance and invoice file. It will be supplied with a fresh service and MOT for the new owner to enjoy.
The car comes with two sets of keys and fobs, documents file and the leather pouch holding all the original owners manuals and service book. There is a spare wheel and tool roll containing the jack and wheel braces.
The Jaguar XJ-S is now recognised as a prestige car ahead of its time. In recent years more enthusiasts and collectors are seeing it for the amazingly capable and classy grand tourer that it is and the most reliable with the late 6.0 litre engine.
We are proud to offer this incredible example to the most particular collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates low miles and superior condition.
