While I don't have a Porsche like itch to own one, I am finding myself increasingly drawn to the XJS when I come across them at classic events - finding it's lines are improving with age.

One of the fastest appreciating cars recently (up 28% in 2018) so Maybe it's time has come.

Any ex Steed's who have dabbled with the big cat?

A few years back the XJS was littering garages with rotten sills and ready for scrap yards , at least some engines were rescued to go into kit cars and other Jags !

I've had 3 Jaguars in the past and loved all three. Smooth as silk and effortless never ending power. As long at it is not the V12 you can do most of the maintenance yourself and the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club is a goldmine of information.
Bit thirsty though, that is the only draw back I'd say.

They were very nice to drive if you uprated the shockers. The last 3.6 seemed the best balanced. I had use of a mid term V12 and a later 3.6 and the later 3.6 drove better and was not really slower. The IL6 had a nice hum to it but would never be quite as creamy as the V12.

I had an XJ12. Sadly an early carb version. Could never get the Strombergs to work properly though leading to dissaponting fuel consumption. When it was running properly I remember watching the speedo swiftly pass 100 mph and just continue climbing in near silence.

Also ran out of fuel late one night on the M4 with an empty starboard tank despite a full port one. One end of the the double SU fuel pump had packed up. Quick bit of re-plumbing in the boot whilst on the hard shoulder had me going again though.

The later 4ltr convertibles are the ones to go for. The prices for these are going up very fast although there is a sub group who favour the pre HE V12 as there aren't many left and we all know how the prices for the last of the initially less popular cars go. Look at the flat floor, outside locking E Type or the Alfa Duetto both silly money now.
What price a Hillman Avenger Tiger and when did you last see one, or want to for that matter!!

I had one of the last of the XJS V 12’s. From new.
Lovely car but the V12 was the 6.2 which compared to the 5.3 was lumpy thanks to all the emissions stuff strapped to it. ( only 308hp) it got through tyres every 11000 miles & was regularly in the garage getting something fixed.
Final straw was the auto box had the odd “tizzy”. I decided I did not wish to own it outside warranty.
Shame really as when I bought it I had intended to keep it long term.
The garage also did something odd to it on 1st Service (1000 miles) it was returned to me with the fan belt rubbing on the radiator filler. After it came back again, it kept showing sludge in the water filler cap. Garage said it was probably inhibitor put in by the factory.
I have my suspicions what happened on that 1st service but it put me off the car.
They are lovely & a bit like Morgan’s. If you can get a well sorted one you will not be disappointed.

A barber in Southport where I get all of my shaving and cologne stuff has one

A late model convertable in light metallic blue with cream leather
I must admit it looks the business

And I agree, I think although it’s a tad on the aesthetically dull side, they are now becoming a timeless classic

Over the years I had 3 of the 6 cylinder versions, all hard tops. If I went for number 4 it would be a convertible. Lovely drive and bucket loads of style.

I know this will have some of you chomping on your pipes, but remember seeing this Lister version at the NEC Classic auctions if the sensible classic lines are just not enough

Ooops, yes I did mean the 4.0L engine. Sorry.

I always liked the Eventers, the Reliant Scimitar was a wasted gene line. I was so close to buying the CLS63 Shoooting Brake at one point. In black it looked so mafia cleanup car. Six bodies in the back and a race to pig farm.

There is one turns up at a Jaguar day at Prescott Dave.
Have to admit I'm rather taken with it.
Wonder if that is where Jaguar got the idea for the Sportback...

Perhaps, like lots of others, you missed the point. They were GT's unlike the "E" which was a sports car and, like so many old Jaguars, they are slow burners which gradually gain popular acceptance along with increased value.

I seem to remember they did - going back a bit on here I seem to remember Alistair owned one for a while and it was somewhat of a tyre shredder. Maybe he can verify that..

We had a friend at pinewood and had access to/provided cars for many of the programs. One of them was Steeds broadspeed XJ12C. A few stories that are best not printed. 7mpg.

One of my Dad's friends had an XJ-C briefly back in the 70s, but went back to an XJ saloon quite quickly because he was disappointed by the level of wind noise in the coupé, made even more noticeable by how extremely quiet and refined the saloon was.

No, thanks for asking. The DVLA say they haven't heard from the doctor who is examining my 2 tests which I took over a month ago. I'm beginning to lose the will to live.

Sorry to hear that, unbelievable incompetence going on there. I really hope they get a grip of it soon it must be 3 months ago now when you started the process or at least asked the question.

Gov Depts are brilliant aren't they. Allegedly, I fractured my ankle last Oct and I was still awaiting my scan until this mornings post. It's now going to happen next week.
