We are delighted to offer this true collectors piece onto the market. C493 NGK is a very rare Jaguar XJS V12 Cabriolet TWR. This low mileage example was registered new to TWR Jaguar Limited and is believed to be their demonstrator car, giving this XJS real provenance. The car was registered to TWR and was owned by them for six months. TWR carried out the first service at 1231 miles on the 2nd July 1986 and 31 years later the car has covered just 57,000 miles from new with documented service history and a file of MOT's dating back to when the car was just three years old.
Adding further provenance to the car, in August 2016 Jaguar World Magazine published a five page feature on the car, a copy of which is with the car. The feature confirms TWR created just a handful of TWR Cabriolets and they report this could be the best. In 1984 TWR announced that it was going to offer aftermarket enhancements to the XJS and the range included a new GRP body kit, new front and rear bumpers, side fairness and rear spoiler. The design improved the cars drag by 12.7%, reduced front lift by 6% and rear lift by 88%. New 16 inch Speedline alloys where added and a new range of colours, including two tone
