For Sale: 1988 Jaguar XJS in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is delighted to present this 1988 Jaguar XJ-S HE convertible for sale on consignment with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The XJS was born under the stewardship of legendary Jaguar Design Engineer Michael Sayer, who played a major role in the design of the E-Type. However, the 70's was a different ballgame for the British luxury manufacturer who, like all contemporary automakers, had to take emissions regulations and a changing market demographic into consideration. The luxury XJ-S was marketed as a "Grand-Tourer" and its larger than life V-12 engine reflected what this car stood for. The convertible option was offered through dealers in the US before 1988, but this example is a true Jaguar factory two-seat full convertible. Painted in a gorgeous Dark Blue with a Tan leather interior and plenty of fancy accessories, this 'Jag looks like an outfit you'd put on for the country club and the V-12 has the displacement to go with that larger-than-life attitude. Pushing 270hp/290lb ft of torque from the factory (GREAT numbers for the 1980's), the XJ-S HE is an effortless driver wherever you're heading. Jaguar wanted to make life as easy as possible for the XJ-S owner so a 3-speed GM-sourced "Turbo Hydramatic" automatic transmission comes standard as does Jaguar's "Long Travel Suspension" and four-wheel disc brakes, giving the XJ-S the perfect balance of American comfort and European road handling. To put the icing on the cake of this well-preserved car, there are just 30,000 actual miles on the odometer making this 1988 Jaguar convertible a real time capsule and collector.
