The Iconic Jaguar XJS - Exploring the XJS

Looking for a Jaguar XJS for sale? This iconic piece of Jaguars motoring history is rapidly becoming something of a classic and an appreciating asset, highly collectable.

The XJS was the replacement for the Jaguar E-Type and was launched in the late 1970s to mixed reviews.

In a time of fuel shortages, the 5.3 V12 engine didn't go down too well and the styling took a little 'getting used to' to say the least, after the flowing lines of the stunning E-Type Jaguar.

It was very much a 2+2 with hard-to-access tiny rear seats, the overall length of the Jaguar XJS mainly accommodated the magnificent V12 engine, the only production V12 at that time.

The Jaguar XJS was a well-appointed car with a 3-speed auto transmission and air conditioning as standard at launch.

Electric windows, central locking, stereo,  leather seats and alloy wheels made the Jaguar XJS appear very good value when compared with its immediate rivals BMW and Mercedes.

Wafting along in luxury and having a top speed of over 150mph certainly gave the XJS a presence on the road, and it quickly became a perfect continent cruiser GT car. 

When looking for a used Jaguar XJS for sale the obvious starting point is the V12 5.3 range-topper.

Why not start with the halo model? There are, of course, many things to consider when looking to buy a used Jaguar XJS though and we will cover some of these below.

Things to think about when buying a used Jaguar XJS

Have you done your checks? Do you know its history? Always ensure that you know exactly what car you're buying when you buy a used car of any kind.

Check the dealership. Do they have good reviews, do they properly prepare the car and do they have a good reputation?

Set your budget. If you're buying a used car then you know your budget isn't at new model level, but it's important to stick to your budget and find the right used XJS for you.

Test drive! Test driving a used car is an important thing to do before you sign off on any paperwork. A test drive can flag up any potential issues with the car before you part with your money.
