Admittedly, when I first saw it pull on the David Manners Group car park I was thinking Starsky and Hutch. The Jaguar XJS replaced the E-Type in the Mid 1970โ€™s but the only obvious retaining feature from its E-Type counterpart is the sheer length of the bonnet. Maybe this is why I was thinking of the Ford Gran Torino from the 70โ€™s cop show. Of course the red colour had a lot to play in this.

According to the website howmanyleft.co.uk only just over 1000 Jaguar XJS cars are left on the road which is staggeringly lower than you would initially think. The Jaguar E-Type was of course a hard act to follow and in many ways the XJS became somewhat of a scapegoat.

But with only just over 1000 Jaguar XJS cars left British roads, they are certainly a head turner now which is why we had to get some pictures to show you.

Later models of the XJS were more economical and the ones that are still left on the road need very little maintenance if looked after. On this particular trip to the David Manners Group, all the owner required was a few service parts to keep it ticking over through the winter.

Thanks for the opportunity to take pictures, and if you own a Jaguar XJS, you can download a free Jaguar XJS price list from our website here.
