Jaguar released the XJS coupe in 1976 not as a direct replacement for the E-Type, which retired in 1974, but rather as an evolution of the breed. While the third series XKE wasn’t exactly the same sporting car that appeared in 1961, it retained much of the original’s character. The XJS, meanwhile, was a true grand tourer aimed more at comfort and cruising than spirited driving.Whereas the E-Type was curvaceous and sinewy, the XJS used aggressive lines, with its most distinguishable feature being its flying buttresses trailing from the roof to the squared-off tail. The model was the first Jaguar not styled by William Lyons and a convertible wasn’t available until the model’s very end.
The car we are offering here is a 28,000 mile example of one of the final "S" convertibles. Finished in Beautiful Black with Beige hides and Black convertible top. Has gone just 28,000 miles, and looks and drives like it. Fully equipped and comes with its service books and factory tools. Extremely smooth and nimble, this Jaguar is ready to show or just cruise. Absolutely stunning condition!
