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.

Wouldn’t you really rather have a Buick? So asked GM’s marketing team in a series of TV commercials promoting the Buick lineup in the 1980s and ’90s. The Reatta was Buick’s 2-seat coupe (and later convertible) from that era, and it packaged smooth styling and advanced technology into a car that provided a lot of […]

As the movement toward the electrification was, so to speak, picking up steam, car designers said they looked forward to exploring the freedom in styling they expected with bulky internal combustion engines being replaced by electric motors and battery packs. To date, most electric cars look pretty much like those powered by petroleum. However, that […]

Everything has to start somewhere, and that includes your first time driving on a race track. Most of us have seen videos of inexperienced drivers cracking up their cars on a track, be it on the famed Nurburgring in Germany or some local road course. It’s ugly and nobody wants to be that guy or […]
