All the panels still line up perfectly and remain free from any corrosion and the chrome trim. to be found on the bumpers. window surrounds and mirrors is in excellent condition with no pitting or unsightly dents.

The elegant gold pin-stripes run the length of the cars sleek bodywork and remain complete on both sides.

Opening the door on the XJS. the interior is awash with beautiful pale cream leather. extending to the centre console a door cards. The driver's seat is in fine fettle. showing minimal wear to commonly worn areas such as the bolsters and seat base. Both the passenger and rear seats appear in 'as new' condition with wonderfully soft. clean leather upholstery. Being the celebration model the seats backs are tastefully embossed with the Jaguar logo. The pale wood trim that can be found adorn the centre console and dashboard is in excellent condition. with no cracks or sun damage to be found whatsoever. All of the interior electrics work exactly as they should and the switchgear feels solid to operate. The tan coloured carpets remain clean and mark free throughout the car. with the correct cream piped over-mats still in place.

Beneath the long. low bonnet. the XJS is equipped with a 6-cylinder. 4. 0 litre engine. At the first turn of the key the engine fires into life and idles correctly up to temperature. The Mechanics of the XJS have always been maintained to a high standard throughout its life and are in full working order.

The 4-speed automatic gearbox feels silky smooth. pulling through the gears with ease and handling the engines power perfectly.

The XJS sits on a set of 16" Jaguar alloy wheels. Having been refurbished. they are all in excellent unmarked condition with all Jaguar centre caps present and correct. The wheels are shod in a matching set of Michelin Primacy 3 tyres. all of which have a plentiful 6mm of tread remaining.

The brakes feel strong and confident. pulling the car to a standstill quickly in a straight line. The last brake fluid flush was carried out at 34k miles.

The Jaguar XJS 'Celebration' edition was first registered in February 1996. The V5 document states 4 owners in that time. the previous having owned the car for the majority of its life since 1998.

The last service was carried out by Guy Salmon Jaguar in April 2014 at 35k miles.
