800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Sleek and sporty on the outside, absolutely luxurious on the inside, and a fuel-injected V12 under the hood to make sure you never go wanting for power. This 1990 Jaguar XJS Rouge edition delivers everything you want, and does it for a value price.
The first impression this one shows off its classic elegance. After all, the long hood, low-slung body, and flying buttress rear are part of the classic European grand touring experience. The bodywork looks nice, and everything is well-respected, right down to V12 badge in the shining grille. The red a paint is a dead giveaway to the special Rouge edition cars. They were only offered for about a year, and it gives this sleek cat an instant sporty appeal. Plus, there's a gold pinstripe that coordinates with the gold badging for an upper-class look. Another great way this one shows both its style and sporty sides is with the wheels. The intricate pattern of the lattice alloys is pure elegance, and the added red accents to match the body to add the right hint of performance.
The tan leather interior has a timelessly tasteful appearance against the exterior red. Just to make sure you know that, there's also a terrific-looking red piping on the seats of this special edition coupe. This has gone far fewer miles than most other cars of this vintage, and so in total, the interior shows plenty of good preservation. You also have the best in luxury features, like premium wood veneer, power windows, cruise control, electric rear defogger, cup holders, power steering, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (likely just needs a recharge to be fully cold again.) As a true grand touring machine, the font seats power adjust to the ideal position, and they are even heated. When you slip behind the wheel, you get big gauges and the gear shift feels substantial in your hand - just like a good driver's car should.
The engine bay has the look of true substance. The 5.3-liter V12 engine is what puts the "Grand" in grand touring. It's a fuel-injected powerhouse that has the torque to effortlessly pull away from stoplights, run smooth on the highway, and have serious power in reserve for when it's time to have a little fun. It looks like a well-maintained setup, and the consignor believes it's original to the car. The automatic transmission is the familiar TH400 sourced from GM, so you know it has the robustness to handle the V12's power with ease. Jaguar has developed one of the best suspension around, including the fully independent rear end with race-inspired inboard disc brakes. It give the coupe both a sharp and supple ride that makes the XJS a favorite with those who drive their classics.
Rarity, style, luxury, and power all come together in a terrifically priced package. So you know you don't want to miss this deal. Call now!
