Jaguar XJS: Buying guide and review (1975-1996) Classic and Performance Car

The Jaguar XJ-S (later XJS) was a rather shocking styling departure for Jaguar Cars. Previously Jaguars had been all feline and curvaceous and the XK-S was billed as the replacement to the most spectacular Jaguar of all time, the beautiful E-type.
 
It was launched in 1975, much more a grand tourer than a sports car, and based on comfort-biased XJ6 underpinnings. The styling, with its squared-off edges and those peculiar buttresses aft of the rear window, can be described as commanding, maybe even svelte, but rarely as beautiful. Yet the XJ-S had the silky 5.3-litre V12 engine under its long bonnet and performance remains impressive, with 0-60mph taking 7.6 seconds (automatic) and a top speed of 143mph. 
 
Jaguar’s timing was also unfortunate, as the XJ-S was launched into the teeth of the oil crisis, and its ferocious thirst proved to be a liability. So in 1981 the XJ-S HE (High Efficiency) was introduced to try to reduce the fuel consumption, with mixed results. In 1983 the new 3.6-litre AJ6 six-cylinder engine became an option, along with the XJ-SC cabriolet version, with its targa-top arrangement. The full convertible version finally arrived in 1998.
 
A major facelift coincided with a subtle change in nomenclature to ‘XJS’ in 1992, with faired-in bumpers, horizontal tail-lights and restyled rear quarterlights that worked better (to some eyes) with those buttresses. The six-cylinder engine was stretched to 4.0 litres and the V12 to a mighty 6.0 litres: the XJS had come of age at last and, in this final guise, had evolved into a fine grande routière. During its 21 years in production, 115,413 examples were sold, making the venerable XJS one of the most popular Jaguars ever.
 

Which XJS to buy? 

 
The XJ-S’s sales success thankfully means that there is a great number of them left on the road today, while the 21-year production run saw various different revisions and models through the years to suit various tastes. 
 
The earliest, and some would say purest cars, were only available with the V12 engine. These early models offer great value and styling, but it’s as the car matured, it became better-built and far better to drive. The introduction of the ‘High Efficiency’ (HE) version in 1981 brought in a much more advanced engine, capable of up to 20mpg. Minor styling changes include new wheels and more chrome. 
 
If you plan on running the car regularly, the option of one of the six-cylinder cars, launched in 1983, is an appealing one. Performance isn’t significantly reduced, but the smaller engine provides up to 30mpg (on a very gentle run!) and reduced running costs. 
 
Most XJ-Ss feature an automatic gearbox, although a handful were bought with manual ‘boxes. When it went on sale in ‘83, the AJ6-engined cars were only offered with a manual, so these are the most common three-pedalled cars, but auto was made finally made available in 1988. 
 
The Cabriolet version went on sale in 1983 with a roll-hoop, removable targa panels and a half-length fabric top, with the full convertible following in 1988. With an electronic hood, and the option of a V12, these later convertibles are far superior. 
 
If it’s performance that you’re looking for, then the limited edition XJR-S model is worth seeking out. With a new bodykit designed by Peter Stevens, and new Speedline alloy wheels, it looked substantially different but the engine initially remained unchanged. Chassis tweaks and improved steering made the TWR-fettled model far more capable in the bends, and a 6.0-litre version in 1989 also gave it a 160mph top speed. Monstrous Lister road cars are perhaps the ultimate, but these are very rare, expensive and difficult to find. 
 
A couple of facelifts in the 1990s again brought in various improvements, including 6.0-litre V12 in 1993, and an improved six-cylinder AJ16 powerplant in 1995. Last of the line Celebration models are perhaps the best of all the XJS models to drive, and are priced accordingly. The last models were also galvanised, helping them to stand up to the UK’s salted roads considerably better than earlier models. 
 

You could look at the XJ-S’s potential faults and accompanying rectification prices and see the model as a be-wheeled money pit. Buy a bad one and you will end up paying your ‘bargain’ price many times over. But the same can be said of any high-end car, and with this one there is simply no reason to buy a poor example.  
 


There are plenty of good cars out there, and a number of specialists who deal only in excellent examples. Our best advice is either to buy through such a specialist or get them to inspect a potential purchase for a fee.

Common problems

 
• The galvanised Celebration models stand up much better to the rigours of weather and road salt. Even so, it is worth checking all years of XJ-S for rot around the lower seatbelt mounts and at the scuttle panel that runs in front of the windscreen. 
 
• If there’s rust bubbling up in front of the screen’s lower rubber, then the scuttle panel will need repairing. To do this properly, the screen has to come out. The front wings sometimes have to come off as well to cure creeping rust. 
 
• While those are the big-ticket corrosion jobs, don’t leave your bodywork inspection to these areas alone. Check over the entire body, dwelling a little longer at the rear arches that are potential rot-spots on the pre-galvanised cars. 
 
• Look out for signs of accident damage, including poor body panel alignment and mismatched paint. 
 
• Jaguar recommended Pirelli P600 and, later, P6000 tyres for these cars. The P6000s are still available new. 
 
• While parts supply is generally good, certain components, such as the front headlights, just aren’t available new. Dealers will charge up to £250 for a good used lamp, so look hard for chips in the lenses and add any damage to your mental money-off list.  
 
• All the XJ-S engines are pretty much bulletproof. The V12 is wonderfully unstressed and will hum along at 70mph with just 2000rpm showing on the rev counter. 
 
• The engine should be incredibly smooth – even one running on fewer than 12 cylinders can still sound a lot happier than the average four-pot. Happily, most misfires are caused by nothing more complicated than failing plug leads or distributor cap. 
 
• The AJ6 engine’s timing chain can get rattly but won’t break like a modern cambelt. Often the fix is as simple as replacing the chain tensioner. 
 
• Oil coolers are prone to failure on cars that have been sitting for a while, so if you come across a low-mileage barn-find keep an eye out for any oil leaks.  
 
• Exhaust manifolds on the AJ16 units fitted from 1993 are prone to cracking. This is caused by worn gearbox mounts that allow the engine to move against the rigidly-mounted manifold, cracking it in the process. 
 
• Make sure you have a good look at the radiator. Overheating can cause a lot of damage and a new rad should be fitted every nine years or so.  
 
• No inspection of an XJ-S can be complete without a really close look at the underside. The front subframe is a prime rot spot and its replacement, factoring in new dampers, bushes, springs and lots of labour, can exceed £4000. 
 
• If the jacking points have rotted out, replacement can be done from £400 a side. But it’s common for the rot to spread from the jacking points, which form part of the complex sill structure, and repairs can easily run to four figures.  
 
• Take a good look at the interior, as re-trimming to the seats can be costly. While the wood trim on the dashboard can be repaired, again this is not a cheap job.

Summary and prices 

 
The days of the rubbish £2000 XJS are nearly gone, and there has also been a definite upsurge in restoration. Early V12-engined cars can be picked up from £10,000, although great cars can command from £20,000-£30,000 for something extra special. Early manual cars can be worth an extra 40 percent.
 
Prices for the 3.6-litre XJ-S come in at £8000-£15,000 for a reasonable example. If you’re feeling brave, projects can still be picked up for around £2000. Top models command £20k-plus. 
 
The most valuable model is the XJ-S V12 Cabriolet, which can command up to £40,000 in top condition. Usable examples range from £10,000-£20,000, while projects start at £5000. Post-1991 Convertible cars with extra chassis bracing still carry a small premium.
 
While the galvanised bodies and higher specification of the post-1994 models are making them very popular right now, earlier cars can be significantly cheaper and still make a good buy – as long as you choose with care.

  • Jaguar XJS 3.6 Manual Gearbox 5 Speed only 25,000 Miles

    £15,995 £15,995

    Clic 1985 Jaguar 3.6 XJS Coupe. I purchased the car from the original owner about 18 years ago when it had only covered 3000 miles. I have only used the car on high days and holidays, so its had a very easy life. The car has spent long periods from time to time stored in our dry barn but we brought it back into commission last year giving it a full service and MOT which it ped with no advisories and I started using it again. It is still a pleasure to drive. Probably one of the lowest mileage XJS available and will quite possibly appreciate in value in the years to come. It is not in concourse condition but in my view its a very good example. New MOT

We didn’t use the paint depth gauge on this vehicle due to the fact its been resprayed. There are some signs of masking if you look closely due to the fact the windows were not removed during the respray. Inside the roof gutters could do with some paint correction attention and the front splitter has flaking paint that needs addressing. Glass and Trim Glass and trim are all in good order. Seats and Carpets The leather seats are in good condition and have been sympathetically maintained keeping that all important patina. The carpets are in good condition, however, a set of new front mats are required. Dashboard The dashboard is in original condition.

The car has also been fitted with a reconditioned torque converter and had the gearbox rebuilt. Suspension and Brakes Robin reports no issues with these components and has spent money on new rear shock absorbers, rear springs, rear lower suspension arms.

The vehicle was originally supplied by Appleyard Jaguar of Edinburgh, has had 4 former keepers and has covered only 71,000 miles, with good history. It has its original mohair hood, and is currently in our workshop undergoing light work to raise the car to a fantastic standard. All 5 wheels have been refurbished, with new tyres fitted. The suspension and brakes have been refreshed, along with a full service carried out. Despite the car being largely free of rust, the paintwork was looking tired, so it seemed only right to treat it to a full respray in our professional paint booth, in the car’s original colour. We’ve also refurbished various seat components. The car will also be supplied with its attractive ‘H17 XJS’ registration plate.

    Variant name:4.0 ,Variant: 4.0 This is an excellent example of a very rare variant of the iconic Jaguar XJS. In 1992, Jaguar closed the department tasked with manufacturing the ultra luxurious, hand-made Daimler DS420. This left their craftsman facing redundancy unless their skills were used elsewhere – hence ‘Insignia’ was born. This was a bespoke service, allowing prospective buyers to specify an XJ40 or an XJS in various unique colours that were created for the Insignia Collection. You could also specify the trim, wood, wheels etc. – an opportunity to create a vehicle tailored specifically to you. This particular car is one of the best around, having been specced with the majority of the options that were available. Although Jaguar were planning to produce around 200 XJS Insignias, in fact, only 57 were ever produced. Of those, only 7 of the four litre straight six coupes were RHD. This car is one of them, and 1 of 1 in this particular colourway – it is truly unique. A 1993 model, presented in Jaguar Lavender metallic with Lotus white leather interior, and having covered only 48,000 miles – remarkably low for its age – the car is in stunning condition. Without question, one of the most rust free, unmolested examples of an XJS you are ever likely to find. Given the rarity and standard of the car, we couldn’t bear to see the car left with small imperfections, such as car park dents, stone chips etc. Thus, the car has been through our workshop to tidy and freshen up the paintwork, refurbish the wheels etc., which ultimately has brought it up to an excellent standard befitting of its rarity, low miles and originality. The car is also supplied with its attractive K1 XJS numberplate.

    About this Jaguar XJS Celebration Convertible The Jaguar XJ-S (later XJS), a luxury grand tourer, was produced by the British manufacturer Jaguar from 1976 to 1996. The XJ-S superseded the E-Type (also known as XK-E) in September 1975, and was based on the XJ saloon. It had been developed as the XK-F, though it was very different in character from its predecessor. Although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJ-S was a competent grand tourer, and more aerodynamic than the E-Type. In 1995, the final specification changes were made and the car was referred to as the Celebration model to celebrate the 60th year of the Jaguar company. Celebration cars feature diamond turned wheels, Jaguar embossed seats and a wooden steering wheel. By then 115,413 had been produced during a 21-year production life. The model was replaced by the XK8. We at Arun are in the unusual position of being able to offer two very similar examples of the Celebration Convertible, the last of the line and therefore the most valuable and collectible. Both finished in Turquoise with Ivory leather and with 61,000 and 78,000 miles and in superb condition. Please ring our Sales Staff on 01798 874477 to discus

    About this Jaguar XJS C V12 TWR Edition Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) were closely associated with Jaguar, a relationship which started in 1982 with the successful entry of the Jaguar XJ-S into the European Touring Car Championship, chalking up a number of wins that year. The relationship continued and by 1988, TWR-Jaguar had taken its first Le Mans victory in a V12-powered XJR-9. Further success followed with a Le Mans win in 1990. This very good Jaguar XJS-C V12 was first registered in April 1987 and presented in Arctic Blue with Saville Grey Leather. It would appear that the first owner recorded around 60,000 miles during the first eight years of the car's life. Thereafter, three subsequent private owners are recorded. The most recent keper acquired the car in 2001 with approximately 70,000 miles recorded. There are sixteen Jaguar Main Dealer stamps in the service book the majority of these with Appleyard Rippon. This car is one of 710 home market automatic cars, less than half of these cars are believed to remain either on the road or SORN; as a TWR Edition this will be one of a very small number of cars that remain on the road today.

    This car has had very little use since the previous owner purchased the car back in 2003. The history file is good containing old MOT’s going back to 1995 and lots of invoices for work that has been carried out. The recorded mileage of 57116 is supported by the history and we believe it to be correct. Please contact us to arrange a viewing/test drive.

    1979 Jaguar XJS V12 Pre-HE 34,700 miles from new Finished in Cotswold yellow with beige leather interior Optioned with air conditioning, electric sunroof, electric windows, polished Kent alloy wheels, power steering. Supplied new on 24th August 1979 this car has remarkably only had 2 owners from new, the last of which owned the car for over 23 years. Since arriving here at Avantgarde we have spent a considerable amount of money ensuring the car is on the button and ready to be enjoyed by the next owner. During the latter years of the last owners tenure very few miles were driven, hence we have had the car thoroughly serviced by highly regarded Classic Jaguar Specialist Chris Forbes/CFS Motors. This included replacing various suspension bushes & shock absorbers, a replacement steering rack, brake callipers, brake hoses, etc, etc. We have also had the air conditioning system checked over and re-comissioned and it now blows ice cold. Cosmetically we have had the original Kent alloy wheels re-furbished in the correct diamond-cut finish and fitted with new tyres. A very rare opportunity to purchase an ultra-low mileage, Pre-HE XJS!
