The Jaguar XJ-S was a luxury grand tourer produced from 1975 to 1996 and replaced the E-Type. Although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJ-S was a competent replacement with better aerodynamics and was last produced on 4th April 1996, by which time 115,413 examples had been produced during a period of 21-years. The performance of the V12 compared well against Italian cars with acceleration of 0-60mph in 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 143mph. In 1983, a new 3.6 litre XJ6 straight-six, four valves per cylinder engine was introduced by Jaguar and, at the same time, a cabriolet model, the XJ-SC, became available. The XJ-SC was not a full convertible but had a non-removable centre targa-type structure and fixed rails above the doors. The static rear quarter windows of the earlier model also remained. Owned by the vendor for the last 17 years, this XJ-S Cabriolet is fitted with the 3.6 litre engine and automatic transmission. The condition of the car could only be described as superb; clearly XJS300S has been cherished and maintained very well. A full service history and substantial file accompanies the car together with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, V5 registration document and an MoT Test certificate valid until 1st June 2015 (with no advisories). Finished in Artic Blue with magnolia leather trim and benefitting from a rear seat conversion, this XJ-SC is a fine example of an increasingly desirable model.
