1995 Jaguar XJS straight 6 only 85k orig Miles triple black Automatic mint Stock: 9296 VIN: SAJNX2742SC199285 Year: 1995 Exterior Color: black Make: Jaguar Interior Color: black Model: XJS Mileage: 85000 Engine: 6 Transmission: Automatic Vehicle Description: Overview Roadster Salon is the largest restorer of classic Italian convertibles in the country. While our specialty is hand crafted re-creations and contemporary engineering for Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Maserati--we also represent a selection of lovely original British and German classics from Jensen, MG, Triumph, Jaguar and Porsche. The Jaguar XJS---particularly the six-cylinder version is an excellent car that bridges the gap between vintage spiders from the 70's and today's more reliable luxury convertibles. This example was a recent addition to our collection, with solid service documentation in impeccable condition. Driven less than 4000 miles per year, the attention to detail and maintenance is evident in every aspect of the cars appearance and performance. While there are a fair number of these cars available in the market for low offers, that is a reflection of poor service histories, neglect and looming mechanical problems. This particular car is turn-key, and was previously serviced by a franchised Jaguar dealer. It has been certified through Roadster Salon's service department, and is offered with a limited warranty. Grade A inside and out. Cosmetic Impressions First said, this is a 20+ year old car, and one needs to align their expectations as such. However, in that context its cosmetic condition is nothing short of remarkable. The paint is very shiny and clean, with no significant scratches or dings to betray its like new appearance. Even upon close inspection, we doubt there is any aspect of the exterior's finish that a customer might quibble with. Really nice overall. The interior is one of the Jaguar's strongest statements. It's said that a car is driven from the inside out--so its interior finish and condition is always paramount. This car does not disappoint. The leather has no rips or tears, and looks/feels fresh reconditioned. The wood trim looks excellent, and the carpets equally so. In fact, the overall impression of the interior is one that appears to be a very well cared for much newer car. No excessive wear on any surface. Non-smoker owned, with no smells or odors. Really clean and pleasant A+. Mechanical and Driving Impressions As stated earlier, our confidence in this Jaguar is reflected by us offering the car with a limited warranty. We believe this beautiful convertible will give its next owner many years of fun with minimal upkeep. Engine and transmission all seemed to be within spec. No squeaks or rattles. Power convertible top works beautifully. Sporty acceleration with nimble handling for its size. Very comfortable ride over rough surfaces. During our 200 mile test drive, the XJS showed no signs of previous abuse or bad behavior. Peppy, solid and sure footed, the Jaguar inspired confidence as the miles accumulated. Our test drive included both city and highway miles. The Jaguar always felt composed and well planted, regardless of the driving conditions. This is a relaxed gentleman's sports car, with a lot of life left to offer. Grade A. Market Report There is a wide range of pricing in the current market for the Jaguar XJS. The six cylinder version is the most popular, with far less maintenance and reliability concerns than the V12. Interestingly, the difference is horsepower and performance was very minimal. The in-line six is regarded as Jaguar's most durable engine and is our favorite. Current NADA classic car values range from $19,500-$26,500 for well maintained versions in average-top condition. We are offering ours at the low end of that trading range. This is a strong value for the Jaguar fan.

About Roadster Salon: Roadster Salon Classic Convertible Recreations since 1999
Italian designed automobiles have been described as rolling works of art. Like a conservator who restores a classic painting to its original splendor—our artisans take forgotten, road weary Spiders, and return them to a time when they were loved and enjoyed. Our spiders are hand crafted by a team of certified Ferrari mechanics and Italian car specialist.
Every chassis is thoroughly screened, refurbished and tested---so that new memories can be built confidently with the turn of a key. Roadster Salon recreates memories of our youth. Simpler times of sunny days, wind in our hair, troubles left behind and a curvy road ahead. Roadster Salon Spiders are the evolution of a classic ideal, built to be enjoyed whenever the passion arises. Our intention is to offer turn key solutions that are aligned with a customer's expectations. From mildly restored original cars to heavily modified ground up re-manufactured creations-- no project is too large or small. All Roadster Salon restorations come with our exclusive warranty unless otherwise specified in our advertisment.
We seek to restore beauty, improve reliability, and retain practicality. Roadster Salon Spiders are meant to be driven and enjoyed, not just shipped from show to show. We currently offer four models intended to fit the needs of most customers. Build sheets are created that include all the details and scope of work for a particular project. Pricing is fixed up front, and deposits are taken as the car is assembled with the balance paid on delivery. From the faithful Originale, the high value Avanzato model, to the Lusso S2--each package offers superior fit and finish for the dollar. All Roadster Salon Spiders are built to suit the taste, budget and priority of individual clients.
New offerings like the Spider Corsa and Tributo provide even further inspiration. Custom features, options and color selections are yours to decide. The process is interactive. You dream it, we build it.
While Roadster Salon specializes in the restoration of Italian makes like Fiat, Pininfarina, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati, Ferrari and DeTomaso---we also have built a solid reputation for restoring other select Europen models like vintage MGB's, Triumph TR series, Mercedes SL and air cooled Porsche 911s. Please call us for more details. Genearlly, restoration costs on these models parallel their Italian counterparts.
Roadster Salon also has an inventory of un-restored original cars and trade-ins that may be purchased as a project to by upgraded by our service department--or purchased as is. We maintain the largest inventory of Fiat spiders in North America and possibly the world. Call us to find which one of our spiders is the right fit for your driving or collecting needs.
