The XJ-S replaced the legendary Jaguar E-Type in September 1975, and was based on the XJ saloon. It had been developed as the XK-F, though it was very different in character from its predecessor. Although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJ-S was a competent grand tourer and, in fact, more aerodynamic than the E-type.

In 1988 and 1989, a special XJR-S version of the V12 5.3 litre car was produced by TWR to celebrate Jaguar's win at Le Mans. A numbered, limited edition of 100 of these cars were made for European sale only. This car had a distinctive TWR-fitted body kit, special alloy wheels and suspension and handling improvements.

This particular car was built in 1989 with the coupe style body work finished in red with a contrasting magnolia interior. The car is in good condition and ready to drive with its MoT valid until July 2007. It has a full service history that is documented in the service handbook. The V12 5345 cc engine is said to be in excellent condition and breathes through a factory fitted stainless steel quad exhaust system. The car has just had a major service which included new discs and brake pads along with new spark plugs. Supplied with the car is a V5 document, old MoT's and a TWR completion certificate (No. A349). The XJR-S is a rare limited edition model that is becoming more desirable every year.
