The Classic Sale At Silverstone Festival 25th - 27th August 2023

+ buyers premium of 12.5% plus VAT (15% incl VAT) on the first £300,000 of the hammer and 10% plus VAT (12% incl VAT) thereafter 137 Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Routier, rather than an out- and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of the Jaguar XJ6/ XJ12 saloon platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its saloon siblings, the XJ-S debuted as a V12-powered Coupe. It was not until 1988 that a full convertible became available, however, and it was a marvel of engineering. It is fair to say that Jaguar took their time to perfect the convertible mechanism and such was its durability it was adopted by Aston Martin for the DB7 Volante. The 5.3 V12 Convertible produced between 1988 and 1991 is acknowledged as the XJ-S Convertible in its purest form. This remarkable XJ-S was commissioned new by the Scottish Business Achievement Award Trust but somehow the dal was never completed and the car was never registered. It remained with Jaguar Land Rover for a few years prior to being purchased by a well known Herefordshire dentist to add to his amazing Collection. Subsequently purchased by the Warwickshire Collection in 2014, it has covered delivery mileage only but has never been anywhere apart from being moved between secure storage areas. Running and driving it’s effectively a ‘new’ 32-year old Jaguar. Finished in Regency Red with Barley hide, Bordeaux carpets and a black hood this is rather special. This, unregistered XJ-S has covered just 138 miles from new and has always been kept professionally stored.
