One of the 1980/90s top trumps!
With “Cylinders: V12”, it beat them all, or almost. A winning type, therefore – despite being eyed with rather a lot of suspicion at its presentation – hardly surprising, after all, being the heir to an undisputed cult object such as the Jaguar E-Type is certainly no easy game to play.
And yet it has managed, in its very own way. Precisely by being different: Massive, refined, courageous, sporty only at second glance – a bit quirky even, a car for individualists. And they honored it, kept buying the distinctive upper-class coupé for over two decades. During this period, the modifications took place almost exclusively underneath the sheets: Never change a winning, er, cat. A convertible variant only became available in 1988, when the XJS had already been on the market for 13 years.
Even with the straight 6 engines, the big cat was far from underpowered and owing to its innovative chassis, sports car connoisseurs can still feel like winners today.
