Introduced at the 1975 Frankfurt Motor Show, the XJ-S ushered in a new generation of GT motoring for Jaguar, combing elegant styling, superlative performance and exceptional luxury. The XJ-S remained in production for the best part of two decades – testament to both the inherent quality of the design and its enduring popularity. Powered by the superbly refined and smoothly powerful 60-degree all-alloy V12 first seen in the ‘Series 3’ E-type, the XJ-S’s engine featured a single overhead camshaft per bank, fuel injection and developed 285 bhp from 5.3-litres, providing effortless performance. The XJ-S was one of only a handful of production cars capable of reaching the magic 150mph (250 km/h) on sale in the mid-1970s – to go any faster one had to step up to supercars like the Aston Martin Vantage, Porsche Turbo or Latin exotica.
