White exterior with Black leather interior in excellent condition.
113K original miles. This Jaguar received a service in 2018 that
included replacement of the head gaskets with updated units. The
Series 2 XJS benefitted from numerous styling changes over the
outgoing Series 1 model including; new five-spoke "starfish" alloy
wheels, chrome inserts on the upper part of the bumpers, and burled
elm inserts on the dashboard and door caps.The V12 in this Jaguar
features the "May Fireball" combustion chamber designed by Swiss
engineer Michael May. This design relocated the spark plugs to the
side of the combustion chamber and revised the pistons to have a
flat-top design. The result, coupled with revised gearing, was
dramatically improved fuel efficiency, ensuring that Jaguar could
continue to build efficient V12s during the 1980s. This is the
origin of the "HE" badge on the back of the car, which stood for
"High Efficiency." This particular XJS came from the factory with a
5.3-liter V12, which produces 263 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of
torque. Other features include: JVC CD audio system, Bulldog
keyless entry system, The paint is in overall good condition and
