Vehicle History


The XJ-S debuted at the 1976 Frankfurt Motor Show as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinder and soft-top versions following in the 1980s. One of the most important developments in the evolution of the V12-powered XJ-S was the introduction of the HE (High Efficiency) engine in 1981. Incorporating a new design of cylinder head, this more fuel-efficient unit enabling the top-of-the-range XJ-S to meet tighter worldwide emissions legislation.

The vehicle has been stored for the past 20 years.
