This two owner Jaguar is velvety smooth, sounds ferocious, and surprises with dizzying speed, while keeping an elegant composure. Created as successor to the legendary E-Type and the last model designed with input from the firm's founder, the legendary Sir William Lyons, the XJS is actually more than just a replacement. It is a Grand Tourer par excellence, the finest mode of transportation for two people wishing to travel fast and in style. Produced for over two decades, from 1977-1998, a few special iterations of the XJS have already attained classic car status, among them the rare XJSC, or "Cabriolet." Just 3,864 of these Landaulet-like, V12-powered Cabs were manufactured between 1983 and 1988, with a only a few hundred sold in the United States, in '86 and '87 only. The car presented here is a very special survivor, being a fully documented, California Jag. As pampered as they come, it's truly a dream come true for those who like to travel fast and in style! The XJS-C came in one flavor only: fully loaded. Plain and simple, the XJS-C was the most elegant luxury car of its generation. If you never had the opportunity to drive a V12-powered automobile, you probably cannot conceive what you've been missing. A V-12 has 50% more cylinders than your father's Oldsmobile or your neighbor's Mercedes S500. Accordingly wide is the power band, even more convincing the legendary, turbine-like smoothness of this incredible engine. The special High Compression May cylinder heads assist in producing around 262 hp to effortlessly cope with any traffic situation. All factory recall and warranty work has been performed on this immaculate cat; every other needed item has always been promptly addressed, Most all work done by Jaguar technician! Have all service records and manuals ,books; tape cassette cleaner,Jaguar tools, pouch ect...Hard Top has never been on the car looks Brand New!
The interior accoutrements of a Jaguar are legendary. A dashboard that deserves the name, with honest-to-goodness burled walnut wood and a leather-wrapped volant, here immaculately preserved. Not a single crack mars the dash. This automobile has always been garaged; it has never been smoked in! All that old-world craftsmanship meets modern day technology, though: nestled between wood and leather, a space-age vehicle information center supplies the driver with valuable information. Factory Jaguar concert sound system with multiple speakers includes cassette deck.Recently installed high end stereo system with ipod hook up , have original! Automatic climate control lets you select a convenient ambient temperature, and the system will supply ample amounts of ice cold or super-heated air.Seats, door panels, and console are covered with the finest, delightfully patinated Isis Blue hides from deliriously happy, well-fed Scottish Highland bovines. These hides were most carefully selected, then vat-dyed in an antique wooden drum at the now-defunct, Edwardian CONNOLLY factory. Truly superior to the Detroit leather found in a pedestrian Lexus or Cadillac, the luxurious ambiance of a British high-end marque, such as Jaguar, Aston Martin, or Bentley is unmatched in the world. Behind the seats: a large luggage area. Wall-to-wall WILTON wool carpeting, as used by Rolls Royce, is an integral part of the car's veddy British charm.Two separate, lockable storage boxes for your valuables. All lights work, including license plate and backup lights. Surprisingly spacious trunk will hold a large amount of luggage and the golf bags, too. The battery--protected by a black cover--is located next to the spare. Undercarriage is virginal. It's truly as good as it gets down here. You turn the ignition key, and hear . . . nothing. You check the gauges right in front of you and they indicate that the engine is running. Can it be? Yes, indeed. It's a V-12, remember? This is what will sell this JAG, this engine is in Top shape!
Put the sleek gear selector into "Drive" and you immediately notice the incredible, silky smoothness of this power plant. The cat moves forward from idle without any indication of stress, the GM-designed turbo-hydramatic shifting imperceptibly. At any speed, in any gear, there is an abundance of power; you feel sovereign in any situation. Since you will probably never be driving the car at its 6400 rpm redline, you might be pleased to learn that the feline will continue to accelerate briskly and silently beyond any legal speed. Even at triple-digit velocity, you will barely notice the engine, nor any intrusive wind noise or buffeting. Speaking about the Jag's creature comforts, this car is well appointed with amenities such as power windows, mirror, door locks, telescoping steering column. All lights, switches, and controls work as Sir William Lyons intended. An incredible automobile with all the luxury, exclusivity, and performance imaginable, this Jaguar XJSC Landaulet from California represents a golden opportunity to join the Twelve Cylinder Club; driving it will make you feel like royalty.
