HISTORY. The Jaguar XJS was introduced in 1975 as a more sophisticated replacement for the E-Type leaning more to being a Grand Tourer rather than a sports car. It stayed in production until 1996 with major updates in 1981 and 1991. It was available in two engine sizes the 3.6litre straight six cylinder and a 5.3litre V12 although both of these were uprated in 1991 to 4,0l and 6.0l respectively; he body was either a coupe or convertible although there were a few conversions to a mini estate by specialist companies. This model I believe to be a 4.0l just before production ceased in 1996 and was known as the Celebration series to honour Jaguar being in business for 60 years although at this point in time they were owned by Ford.
