The renamed XJS was re-engineered in June 1990. The rear side windows appeared enlarged. and the buttresses stayed as designer Geoff Lawson argued that they were part of the car's character. The car received a new 4. 0-litre version of the AJ6. In 1992. a 4. 0-litre convertible was added to the range. The V12's capacity was enlarged to 6. 0 litres in May 1992. At the same time the car benefited from a revision to the rear brakes. they were now fitted with outboard rear disc brakes. instead of the more complicated inboard items on previous models. With the introduction of the 6. 0-litre V12. the transmission was also updated to a GM 4L80E with a fourth-gear overdrive. whilst the automatic 4. 0-litre models continued with the electronic ZF4HP24E transmission.

In April 1994. substantial revisions were made to the 4. 0-litre AJ6 engine which became the 4. 0-litre AJ16 with coil-on-plug ignition. In 1995. the final specification changes were made and the car was referred to as the Celebration model to celebrate the 60th year of the Jaguar company. Celebration cars feature diamond turned wheels. Jaguar embossed seats and a wooden steering wheel. The XJS was discontinued in 1996. after 21 years in production.

The vendor states that this beautiful XJS celebration has had 4 previous keepers. He has owned it since February 2010. and purchased it from the reputable independent Jaguar dealers Arun. It has had a full Jaguar stamped Service History. but since the vendor purchased it he has had it regularly serviced locally. It has been Waxoil protected underneath. . always garaged and used regularly for purely pleasure and social. It is one of the best XJS's he has ever driven and he has owned 4! It competes very well with today's traffic. it could easily be used as a daily driver. The condition is excellent. the upholstery is in great condition. It breaks his heart to see it go but a classic Jaguar purchase forces him to sell it to make garage space.
