XJS' of this quality (particularly convertibles) are developing real 'legs' in the current market
 
The XJS Convertible, which first appeared in 1988 at a price of £36,000, was considerably more than merely a Coupé with the roof removed. The earlier ''T'-top' Cabriolet paved the way as the first open Jaguar since the departure of the E-Type in 1975, but this was to be the first full convertible and a strengthened sub-frame was employed in order to alleviate scuttle shake. It looked superb and elegant with the hood erect or folded and finally met the demands of the highly valued North American market. Retaining the roomy cockpit space of the coupé, the new convertible boasted a useful shelf for extra luggage and all the expected Jaguar refinements as standard. The XJS's superb 5.3-litre engine developed some 295bhp in later fuel injected form and, even when allied to an automatic transmission, the car was capable of a genuine 150mph. It made for a very fine open-top 'Grand Touring' car, exceeding the specification of other home-grown machinery and being much cheaper than the equivalent high-profile Mercedes SL.  
 
This sparkling 1990, XJS Convertible is finished in Bordeaux Red Metallic with a Parchment interior and Maroon carpets. The current indicated mileage is just over 71,000 but, as can be seen from the photographs, its condition suggests half of that. Enjoyed by five owners, it has a main agent history up to 58,000 and the service records are stamped up to 70, 400 (2012). With a current indicated mileage of 71,564, it has obviously been used lightly in recent years. Described by the vendor as “In superb condition and drives as it should”, this lovely Jaguar is MOT'd until December and is sold with a full book pack and tools.
 
Today, this model has established itself as a most worthy latter-day classic, good examples are being eagerly sought by connoisseurs and, naturally, prices are on the move.
