This fabulous example of a facelift V12 is finished in Rhodium silver
with beautiful Cream leather interior.The car is showing Just under 79000 miles which is supported by an HPI Certificate, as well as 9 paper MOT's from 2008 , when the vehicle was showing some 67000 miles. The car's history comes in the form of a folder full of loose invoices showing work done.In fact the renowned Jaguar specialist Robert Hughes sold the vehicle in 2005 with the odometer showing 63000. ( the original invoice is in the history). It would appear that the vehicle has converted only about 12000 miles from 2008 to the present day. Although the car was serviced in May 2014' it has only covered less than 1500 miles since that time. The vehicle has recently (August 2015) completed a major comprehensive service, comprising 10/40 semi synthetic oil,oil filter, genuine Marelli distributor cap and rotor arm, genuine HT leads and 12 spark plugs, as well as two new original air filters. Moreover the a/c system has been modified to the later type of gas.it has just been overhauled.Front brake discs, pads and calipers were replaced by the previous owner.The bodywork is dead straight and the paintwork is bright and shiny, as is the chrome.The interior is lovely, further testifying to the mileage shown on the odometer.Headlining has been replaced.The tyres are all good, and she sits on the correct alloys. The underside has been waxy oiled in time for the Winter.The vehicle , whilst on a ramp, was inspected thoroughly on the underside, and found to be absolutely solid, with no welding needing to be done ( this includes floor pans).The next MOT is due May 2016 . She starts 'on the button', with no smoke and no fuss, and runs on 12 cylinders right away. She will stop without pulling left or right. I drove the car some 275 miles on a blisteringly hot day, with absolutely no issues. She drove straight and true and did not overheat.Although the oil pressure gauge is sometimes a little flighty, oil pressure is excellent.
She will also behave reasonably well in bumper to bumper traffic (which I have just experienced on the A406 for 1 hour)although she never 'goes into the red' on the water temp dial.Additionally the fan turns itself on and off after a grueling traffic experience.
These cars are an astute investment, and are becoming rarer by the day. The V12 XJS is probably the only affordable 12 cylinder mass production car left to buy, and bear in mind that this is the even rarer 'facelift model'.It seems to me that values of all XJS's have risen considerably over the past year , and cars like this won't be this cheap for much longer - especially the facelift models.
