Little Red Dress: 1994 Jaguar XJS Convertible

The Jaguar XJS is beautiful classic that is regularly stripped of its original British built 6 or 12 cylinder powerplants and powered by some carburetor fed pushrod V8 -- but not today.  Today, we've got a nice example that looks clean and original with low miles and a very reasonable price tag.  Find this 1994 Jaguar XJS offered for $11,900 in Ann Arbor, MI via cars.com.  Tip from Steven.




The Jaguar XJS was a luxury grand tourer replacement for the E-Type that survived with only a few changes over an substantial 20 year lifespan.  Production started in 1976, had a minor makeover in 1982, and a more significant re-design in 1992 and the last cars left the factory in 1996.  


Under the bonnet is a 226 horsepower 4.0 liter DOHC inline-6 that propels the 3500 lb convertible from zero to 60mph in about 7.5 seconds.  It isn't the fastest thing on the planet, but it oozes character.

  1. From the rear it looks more convertible Mercury Grand Marquis than Jaguar.

  2. Don't forget about the rare manual transmission on this one too. Much more interesting.
