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.
In a sense, the XJS took inspiration from Mercedes-Benz’s 2+2 GT, the 450SLC, a boulevardier capable of comfortably eating up the miles. To that end, the XJS was fitted with Bosch-Lucas fuel injection, a three-speed Borg-Warner automatic transmission, air conditioning, power steering and brakes, and leather upholstery. The Jag used the same 5.3-liter V-12 engine found in the final iteration of the XKE to hit a top speed of around 150 mph.
Through the years, the color range was expanded and an H.E (high efficiency) engine was added in 1982, but sales remained between 3,500 and 5,000 cars a year. A sunroof arrived in 1986. When the XJS was discontinued in 1996, it was the longest-running Jaguar model ever, at 20 years.
Thanks to the production numbers, the XJS is still abundant today. Nevertheless, there’s considerable cachet to the V-12, which is silky smooth and almost silent at its best. Fuel economy should not be a concern of yours if you are seeking one out, and the wisdom of buying the best you can was never truer than when it was applied to the XJS.

This Jaguar XJ-S V12 is the most powerful H.E. (high efficiency) version built in 1988. It is a right-hand-drive example, in the Czech Republic since 2010. It was regularly used for occasional rides in nice weather and it was never stored for several years. The V12 engine is in perfect condition, the car has new brake discs, pads and tires. The body is without any signs of corrosion. The car is fully functional. A luxury GT for comfortable traveling even over long distances (520 kilometres completed in 1 day and). It is registred on Czech historic plates.
