1992 Jaguar XJS XJS 5.3 V12
Here is a lovely 1992 Jaguar XJS 5.3 V12. The XJS is considered to be one of the next top collectible classics by David Gooding of Gooding & Co. an auction house that sells only the most expensive rarest cars. These cars are not going down in value as most of these have fallen into disrepair or have been scrapped because of rust issues. By the late 1980's Jaguars reputation was bad and due to poor quality control and eccentric designs their reliablity suffered greatly. In order to survive they needed cash and Ford Motor Co. stepped in and the rest is history.By then the XJS had been in production since 1976 and was starting to show its age. For the 1992 model year Jaguar had invested a good sum of money to update and modernize the XJS improve quality control and update the electronics. The cars were being fitted for Jaguar's 4.0 Liter 6 Cylinder so a new hood was designed the twin sealed beam US spec lights vanished giving US customers the European spec look The rear quarter panel side windows were modernized and the taillights were also revised.Inside Jaguar finally made a drivers airbag standard doing away with the US required motorized seatbelts. A new instrument cluster along with better switches and ac controls helped usher this car up to 1990 standards. For the 1992 model year the 5.3 liter V12 was the only engine available. The six cylinder was released in 1993 in the XJS. For the 1992 and 1993 model years the XJS retained the classic chrome and rubber bumper set up although revised with the side reflecters hidden in the side rubber strips. In 1994 Jaguar tried to modernize the XJS even more by using molded painted plastic bumper assemblies which looked like an afterthought and made them quite unattractive.This car finished in a classic creamy white with blue leather interior is truly in spectacular condition. It was always garaged and looks as close to new as a 23 year old car can. The inside still smells like new leather the carpets seats and dash are perfect. The wood is deep rich walnut and it retains its original factory radio. The tires have 90 percent of their thread left and this car can be driven anywhere. The car has recently been service and all the belts have been replaced. These cars are becoming increasingly hard to find and ones in good condition are the only ones that should be considered.
