The final run of XJS models benefited from considerable enhancements, though the combination of higher list prices on a model about to be discontinued by the factory meant very few were sold new. Therefore, the very last and most refined XJS Celebrations are extremely sought after today, especially as convertibles. The six-cylinder AJ16 is not only smoother and faster than the predecessor, but visually more attractive which enthusiasts love. The vibrant colour combinations such as this Turquoise example look the most attractive and set-off the special interiors beautifully. Finished in Ivory (softer autolux hide) with monograms to head restraints and piping in coffee, this complements the stylish classic wood grain extending to centre console, door fillets, dashboard and steering wheel. We first purchased this as a low mileage, two owner car in 2009 and the gentleman we sold it to had a valuation and appraisal carried out by ex-Coombes, JEC technical advisor Ken Bell which could not have been more complimentary. In around 2011, the owner relocated to Sweden taking the car with him, where it became his hobby interest and was seldom used. Servicing was carried out by a Jaguar specialist with invoices added to the already impressive and very comprehensive history file. Having just re-purchased the car, we drove it back to the UK in March and repatriation paperwork including V5C is now complete . The condition is as impressive as when we last saw it with bodywork, interior and the manner in which it drives being hard to fault . The mileage is just 42,000 since new.
