This 1995 Jaguar XJS is an original, two-owner car that has been pampered since day one.
Sold by Monte Shelton Jaguar of Portland to the second owner in 1998 with 33,000 miles. 22 years later, it now shows just 50,026 miles on the odometer. (That's an average of just 772 miles per year between 1998-2020.) Always garaged. No accidents, damage or rust. Clean CarFax report.
The curent owner is a longtime Jaguar Club of North America member and has shown this XJS at national judging meets 6 times over the years. It is a SIX-TIME NATIONAL CHAMPION IN THE XJS CLASS, winning top honors every time it was shown. The owner has a cabinet filled with trophies garnered by this car. Suffice to say, this is likely the finest original 1995 XJS available today.
It wears the rare, factory "Rose Bronze metallic" paint (Code 795/SDL - A color, legend has it, designed for Princess Diana.) Just 47 XJS convertibles were produced in this color. The paint is absolutely flawless with a deep shine. The parchment leather interior is also gorgeous and shows no appreciable wear. The genuine wood accent trim is beautiful throughout. All accessories work as-new, including the heater/air conditioning, stereo CD changer, power windows, seats, etc. The original burgundy power convertible top looks and works as-new and includes a top boot.
PLEASE SEE PHOTOS.
Mechanically, this XJS is exceptional. The 4.0 litre, inline 6 cylinder engine runs smoothly and powerfully. The engine bay is fully detailed and looks like it just rolled out of the factory. 4-speed automatic transmission shifts perfectly. Brakes stop smooth and straight. I have personally driven this car and it runs and drives without fault. Always serviced on schedule by Jaguar specialists. Nothing has been deferred or neglected. All service records from 1998-2020 are included (see photo of the service file.) The flawless factory alloy wheels are wrapped by like-new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S radial tires.
PLEASE SEE VIDEO OF ENGINE RUNNING.
If you are looking for a multiple award-winning XJS to show or go, this is the one. Priced in keeping with its rarity, condition and low-mileage. Could not be duplicated at any price.

There is something magical about a V12 engine. They are under the hoods of some of the most-exclusive high-performance cars in the world. Think Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Aston Martin. The sound of a V12 engine is unlike any other engine type, with a turbine-like whirr that is absolutely addicting. There is a downside with a […]

The world in the mid-1970s was very different than it was just five years previous. Drivers’ tastes had changed;

In mid-March, I wrote a commentary headlined “I don’t understand the need for driving gloves: Do people wear them just to look cool, or do they enhance car control?” While I have nothing against such gloves, or against those who might wear them, I had never understood exactly why people would wear them, or why […]

the Porsche 914 weighted in at 2,072-2,194 pounds, allowing this to provide a sporty ride. The handling and braking also vastly benefited from this, taking a page from Lotus’ Colin Chapman’s playbook.
Mitch Perry did not make my list of favorite race drivers this past week. However, he is at the top of my list as my own race driver coach and friend, and we share very parallel youth years. Unlike me, he has gone on to become an accomplished racer and is one of LA’s most […]
The Pick of the Day is advertised as a 1966 Ford GT40 with an asking price of $124,999. Deal of the century for a GT40 Mk I “street-legal supercar”? Well, as it turns out, this car being offered by its private owner in Gardnerville, Nevada, is not one of the cars that Ford raced at […]
