West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptional and increasingly collectible example of this classic and original southern California 1994 Jaguar XJS 6.0L V12 2+2 convertible with only 73K original miles! Following the 5.3L V12 production run (some 15,000 convertible cars built between 1987-93) which ended in 1993, there was only 1 x 6.0L V12 2+2 Convertibles built in 1992, 595 x 6.0L V12 2+2 convertibles built in 1993, 1,030 x 6.0L V12 2+2 Convertible models built in 1994, 78 x 6.0L V12 2+2 Convertibles built in 1995, the penultimate year of production for the legendary marque and only 2 x 6.0L V12 2+2 Convertibles were built in 1996, the very last year, making these 6.0L V12 2+2 convertibles very rare and thin on the ground! They were very expensive and luxurious cars when new and they are now proving extremely collectible and desirable for any Jaguar enthusiast or classic sports car collector as a future blue chip collectible!
The cars factory options include:
6.0L V12 fuel injected engine 4 speed automatic transmission with Sport & Normal modes Touring Suspension Driver & Passenger Airbags Limited Slip Differential Gearshift interlock Intermittent wipers Power 4 wheel disc brakes with anti-lock Electronic fuel injection Automatic temperature control with Air Filter Power rack & pinion steering Driver & Passenger Airbags Full instruments & tach Power seats with lumbar Driver memory seat Remote entry/security Illuminated sunvisors Vanity mirrors Space saver spare Tilt wheel with twin horn Color keyed bumpers Cruise control High Mounted Stop Light 2+2 seating Heated front seats Door open entry light 5 Spoke Chrome Alloy Wheels 6 CD Multi Changer Headlamp Powerwash Doeskin Headling 'Barley' Autolux Leather Trim with 'Green' Piping Black Steering Wheel 'Barley' Facia Coffee Carpet 'Light Beige' Hood (Power soft top) 'Barley' Seatbelts with Green stitching Burl Walnut Veneer Charcoal Welts
The car was delivered new to 'Jaguar of South Bay', the Jaguar dealership in Torrance, CA where it was sold to it's original southern Californai owner. It was serviced primarily for many years at 'San Jose British Motors', the Jaguar dealership of San Jose, CA until most recent years when it has been serviced at the renown 'Just Jaguar' independent Jaguar specialists of Sherman Oaks, California with all recent service records available showing that at no time was any expense spared on this particular vehicles preventive maintenance.
Gorgeous and very desirable rare and supremely classic color combination of original factory 'British Racing Green' (Code HFB) color paint with factory contrasting chrome alloy wheels, beautiful and original factory 'Light Beige' power soft top with original matching leather tonneau cover and beautiful doeskin 'Barley' (Trim Code AFW) leather interior! This particular car must be seen to be truly appreciated! A real head-turner!
The original factory 'British Racing Green' color paint is quite beautiful and stunning and the original doeskin 'Barley' color leather seats are also in outstanding condition with virtually no signs of any wear and there are no noticeable imperfections in the dashboard, the walnut veneer, the door panels or the carpets and the car still has it's original 'Jaguar' radio/cassette system including a factory CD changer in the trunk. The car has a matching tonneau cover and is in all original and quite exceptional condition throughout with all the options and gauges working as they should including the A/C which has been recently converted from R12 to R134.
Powered by one of the finest, race proven engines built by Jaguar, the smooth 6.0L V12 engine, introduced in 1993 for the XJR-S by TWR (Tom Walkinshaw Racing) and Jaguar Sport and available in the XJS until 1996, this was the finest Jaguar V12 yet, a much improved engine from the previous 5.3L with better cooling systems and more modern accessories and more torque and power (318 HP) with a reputation for being the most reliable and street worthy production V12 ever built! It was a very low production model costing over $80K new in 1994 with only some 1,706 x 6.0L 2+2 V12 Convertibles being built between the total production years of 1992-96! With obviously only very few examples available for sale at any one time, these are as you will appreciate, very rare and thin on the ground!
This original 6.0L V12 engine is still extremely strong and smooth running with excellent oil pressure and which does not burn or leak oil. The temperature always remains cool and the car drives exactly like a virtually still new V12 Jaguar with such low miles should - no shakes or rattles - very smooth and powerful - drives the same as when it left the showroom floor over almost 25 years ago!
This must be one of the finest examples available anywhere of these classic and increasingly desirable and collectible Jaguar XJS 6.0L V12 convertibles - therefore proving a very collectible investment in probably the last classically beautiful design built by Jaguar in their long and famous history of classic lines - a sure-fire classic car investment for the Jaguar enthusiast or simply 'pride of place' in any astute classic car collector's collection!
