DT: 44k-Mile 1990 Jaguar XJ-S Convertible V12 Classic Collection

Now up for auction is this 1990 Jaguar XJ-S “Classic Collection” finished in Brooklands Green over a Doeskin leather interior with tan seat piping.  Offered exclusively to the U.S. market, the “Classic Collection” edition XJ-S celebrated the last of the pre-facelift models and is appointed with lattice alloy wheels, special badging, and Jaguar’s renowned HE V12 engine. This particular XJ-S was sold new from Monterey Jaguar at an original sticker price of $59,835.  It has remained in California ever since and was acquired by its current owner in 2018.  A truly well-preserved example, this XJ-S shows just over 44k miles and is accompanied by the original window sticker, Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, and extensive service records dating back to new.  This Jaguar is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Grover Beach, CA.

The Brooklands Green exterior finish is said to have been kept in very good condition overall with only a small dent and paint chip noted on the front bonnet. This special edition can be identified by its “Classic Collection” badge located on the rear just above the “V12” insignia. A Jaguar hood ornament has been added along with a period cell phone antenna mounted on the rear trunk lid.  This example rides on factory 15” lattice wheels that were dressed in a brand-new set of Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tires in September of 2019 within the last 1k miles.

Inside, the cabin is configured in Doeskin leather with tan seat piping, deep pile carpeting, and decorative Burl Walnut trim.  Other factory features include a leatherbound tilt steering wheel, power tinted windows, power door locks, automatic temperature control, heated sport seats with power-adjustable lumbar support, and a 4-speaker sound system. Some signs of wear are present on the front seats.

Power is derived from a large 5.3 L HE V12 SOHC 24-valve engine that sends as much as 263 HP and 278 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a smooth 3-speed automatic transmission.  Service records are available dating back to the original purchase and the seller reports that a section of the exhaust pipe was replaced with a new OEM part under their ownership.

This sale will include a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, the original window sticker, spare tire, CD changer, and a clean title. A timeless luxury grand tourer, this well-represented Jaguar XJ-S is an excellent choice for collectors and driving enthusiasts alike.

    freemaha~ you are entitle to your opinion but since you were never a bidder and your opinion is your opinion, and actually means nothing its just words. At $13,750 was the high bid and trying to find an XJS with this documentation, provenance, condition and service records from new is extremely difficult. Time to move on....

  • Freemaha (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    $20k is steep especially since annual maintenance to keep these running is so high. I would have taken the $14k bid and ran with it.

    It always kills me when a beautiful car gets dinged because of its stereo. Sort of the reverse of ads for crappy cars with giant subs stuck in the trunk.
    This is a gorgeous Jag. To focus on a Kenwood head unit somehow misses the point.

    A cold start video as been uploaded to P carmarket, probably will be posted tomorrow along with the others video from today. Photos with the top down coming soon. Again thanks for your interest and patience.

  • 72MFI (seller) 3 weeks, 2 daysago

    Regarding the comments on the Antenna and stereo, yes its is an aftermarket Kenwood and a very nice one. It was already in the Jaguar when i purchase it. The Antenna my guess is that it ad a phone at one time or another, as this Jaguar came from a well to do family in Newport Beach, and probably was install right after the purchase back in the 90's. The Jaguar came from a large car collection from whom the owners own a large mall in Newport Beach knows as South Coast Plaza. It is obvious by the condition of the XJS that it was kept indoors its entire life and the condition is like new, paint is near flawless and the interior is near showroom new. I agree with Freemaha buy the best one you can find and i believe it is this one. Again thank you for your interest and comments.

  • Freemaha (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 2 daysago

    Agree the aftermarket stereo equipment and cell phone antenna are hideous but simply to put right. These are beautiful automobiles and a super bargain. They say to buy the best one you can afford because there is no such thing as a cheap older Jaguar. This one looks to be in great condition overall.

  • 72MFI (seller) 3 weeks, 3 daysago

    Good morning, i have sent to P carmarket some driving videos and and functions of the top up and down as requested by viewers. Cold start will be done today ass well. Again thank your for your interest and patience.

  • manuals4ever (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 3 daysago

    Lovely looking XJS. These came out right around when I graduated HS... so wanted one.
    I have to say the leaper and cell antenna detracts from an otherwise outstanding looking Jag!
    GLWTA!
