On the road, the XJS had more than enough presence, interior
refinement, and power to spare, but a thirsty V12 engine with
nightmare reliability has turned it into a classic only the
courageous can afford. Because of its historical proximity to
the E-type, it is currently accumulating.
Following Malcolm Sayer's passing in 1970, the internal Jaguar
design team, led by Doug Thorpe, finished the project's design
and development, which had started in the late 1960s under
the code name Project XJ27. Jaguar offered a manual or
automatic transmission with its V12 engine, but the manual
was quickly discontinued since there were too many manual
transmissions leftover from the V12 E Type manufacture.
At the time, V12-powered production cars were rare; Italian
luxury sports car manufacturers Lamborghini and Ferrari
built such versions. The XJ-characteristics S's were
competitive with those of the two Italian vehicles; it could
reach 97 km/h (60 mph) in 7.6 seconds (automatic models)
and could reach a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).
The automobile had a tonne of luxurious, spacious, and useful
amenities to offer, and the interiors were typical of Jaguars
from the era. Inside and exterior, the car was just stunning.
The XJS, a complete land yacht, changed the game for Jaguar
and contributed to the company's market dominance.
