Its Alive Automotive in Bridgeton, Missouri
Gear head, car guy, car gal, whatever you want to call it, you like cars and enjoy driving and owning automobiles that offer something special. Whether its beautiful styling, powerful engines, great handling or other characteristics that make certain cars special, you find that appealing.
In your quest to experience things that set certain cars apart from others, something that should be on your list is to own a V12 powered automobile. This Jaguar XJS is such an entry into the V12 world and at a very affordable price.
When you turn the key, its almost as if something is wrong. You dont hear or feel the stroke of the pistons as they compress fuel and air. Its a turbine like sound rather similar to a jet engine spinning up. The short stroke Jaguar V12 gives a new meaning to the word smooth. That turbine like feel continues all the way up to the 6500 rpm red line. In fact, the red line is limited more by the engine ancillaries than the engine itself. V12 power truly puts the grand in grand touring and a Grand Tourer is what best describes the XJS.
This 1986 model has the HE (high efficiency) version of the V12 that between fuel injection and a redesigned combustion chamber, delivers more power and better fuel mileage than the original carburetor car.
Our example here is in nice overall condition. It starts, runs, and stops as it should. The interior is clean and without major faults and showing only the patina of careful use over time. The paint has some flaws here and there but is still shiny and smooth and still presents quite well.
