1989 Jaguar XJS 5.3L V12 Convertible


1989 Jaguar XJS 5.3L V12 Convertible 18000 miles only.

This exceptional condition, low mileage XJS left the factory in August 1989, being exported to British Motors Ltd (Jaguar), Hong Kong.

First registered in September 1989 chassis number 165538 was then exported to Japan in April 1996 and led a pampered life in Japan where a temperate climate and no road salt means rust is not an issue for this XJS.

The bodywork and underside of this XJS are remarkable, more like a 3-year-old car than a near 30-year-old car and totally unrestored.  The interior is so clean and looks amazing, yet totally original.

If you are in the market for an investment grade, first-class condition XJS Convertible you really need to view this car.

Finished in non-metallic gleaming Signal Red combined with Barley leather interior, matching carpets, black mohair hood and black hood cover.

The level of detail on this low mileage XJS is very impressive. The car retains the coach lines along the bodywork. The engine bay is show standard, the door shuts are as clean as the bodywork. The chrome is untarnished and the wheels are blemish free.

This XJS boasts a comprehensive specification, consisting of electric folding hood, electrically adjustable and heated leather seats, electrically adjustable door mirrors, electric windows and aerial, central locking, cruise control, air conditioning and alloy wheels.

The XJS has to be among the world’s most beautiful V12 convertibles of all time and are now being recognised by collectors, with low mileage cars increasing in value.  Even Jaguar Land Rover’s new Classic Car Division has chosen Japan as its source for XJSs to sell around the world.

In 2018 the XJS had a steep increase in value and continues to increase in value rapidly from a slow start up to mid-2015, to a rate of 5 – 28% per year now. It would be fair to say that the XJS is ‘doing an E Type’, in other words becoming very sought-after as good examples disappear, and prices soar because of the investment potential. All examples of the XJS are rising in value, and it is not too late to grab one at a reasonable price, make sure you only buy the best car you can afford.
