Electric windows, central locking, stereo, leather seats and allowy wheels made the Jaguar XJS appear very good value when commpared with its immediate rivals from 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.
