The luxurious hand crafted cream leather upholstery is a superb contrast to the deep red exterior paintwork and black roof. The supple leather retains an unblemished appearance with a lovely factory texture having never been re-connolised. The seat bases show no signs of any sagging and bolsters in good order, the electronic lumbar support and seat heating operate just as they were intended. The original deep pile carpet is in excellent order and unmarked. The hand-polished Burr Walnut inlays are all in original excellent order with no cracking or lifting. All interior lighting, gauges, switches and electrics work as they should.
Finished in factory Signal Red with dual pinstripe the paintwork has a brilliant uniformed deep shine throughout. All original panels are perfectly straight, totally rust free and gaps as per it left the factory. All original lights front and rear are in exceptional order with uniformed colour and a silky polished finish. The electric mohair soft top operates at the touch of a button swiftly, quietly and smoothly the rear windows glide out of sight. There's no evidence of wear and it still has an even deep black finish as does the Factory supplied tonneau cover. All brightwork is in great original order as are the rubber bumper inserts which tend to distort and fade with age, the factory tinted glass is unmarked and original. Wonderful...
The original Jaguar 15-inch lattice wheels have been restored to the highest standard having been beautifully refurbished in recent years. They are shod in a matching set of excellent Pirelli P600 235/60 R15 tyres, a recent full HD 4 wheel alignment has just been carried out.
Brakes are excellent all round, they pull up strong and are perfectly balanced. The rear brakes have been completely renewed with new discs, pads and handbrake shoes less than 150 miles ago.
The 5.3-litre V12 OHV engine performs effortlessly whatever the pace, the silky smooth automatic gearbox shifts exactly as it should. Power is linear and smooth, hot or cold starting is instant and no problem. There are no adverse rattles, untoward noises or evidence of fluid leaks. The engine bay is very clean and detailed. Driving this Big Cat is simply a joy with a top speed of 144 MPH and 0-60 in 8.4 seconds its a Grand Touring masterpiece.
Here we have a chance to own a very desirable Jaguar XJS Convertible 5.3 V12 in the best colour combination of red coachwork and cream leather. This car was registered new on the 1st August 1989 by Charles Clark Jaguar, Stourbridge and sold to Kelly Group Limited of West Bromwich. The car had several owners within the Company and it remained in their ownership until April 2002. It's clear to see it has been truly pampered and cherished throughout its life time.
The history file contains the original 2 Jaguar keys, Jaguar Leather Bound folder with all official handbooks, a comprehensive stamped Jaguar Service record, original XJ-S sales brochure, every mot from 1998 to the present day, receipts and invoices for thousands of pounds worth of servicing and maintenance. This documentation also proves the genuine low mileage.
Recent expenditure in excess of £4000 has been spent during 2020 bringing this XJS into top condition. Work includes, new rear brake system, full bumper to bumber major service with all fluids changed plus many replacement wear and tear parts renewed such as bushes, ball joints, track rod ends etc.

Launched in 1975 the XJ-S had a 5.3-litre V12 engine. Most were autos. HE (High Efficiency) V12 offered better fuel economy from July 1981. Jaguars 3.6-litre straight six twin-cam joined in 1983. Manual only until auto added in 1988. 1983 saw the 3.6-litre XJ-SC cabriolet, with a V12 version in 1985. Both were discontinued in 1987 in favour of the 1988 convertible with frameless windows and a one piece hood. 1991 saw relaunch of the XJS (minus hyphen). Changes included revised rear side windows, tail lights and 4.0-litre straight six engine option. Six cylinder 4.0 convertible joined the existing V12 version in 1992, while the following year saw a 6.0-litre version of the V12 available. XJS production ended in April 1996.
