Car to be at auction 2/23
Race Retro Classic and Competition Car Sale 2023
1991 Jaguar XJ-S Le Mans V12
Registration Number MIB 3333
Chassis Number SAJJNAEW3BM177926
Engine Number 8S081532SG
Body Colour Signal Red
Beautifully preserved, special edition XJ-S with 2,804 miles on offer from the home of its one and only owner.
Offered here is an unrepeatable opportunity to take ownership of possibly the lowest mileage XJ-S V12 Le Mans available today. It was collected from the Jaguar Daimler dealer Wesley Turkington of Lurgan, Norther Ireland by its one and only owner keeper on the 20th June 1991 and has covered just 2,804 miles from new. Finished in Signal Red, one of the four colours unique to the 280 Le Mans examples built, and trimmed with cream leather piped in red, it presents in exactly the condition you might expect given its low mileage and the fact that it has lived in a cosy garage and been cossetted all its days. Our, now elderly, vendor used it very sparingly until 2009 when it was put away for the last time until being transported over to this auction by his family.
Some thirty years on, it still has that laser sharp look and the interior appears virtually unmarked. During our photo shoot, it fired into life instantly with that distinctive smooth turbine whine synonymous with a big Jaguar V12 and ticked over perfectly. It sits on immaculate 16 x 7 inch forged lattice alloys wearing the correct Pirelli tyres, all its manuals are present and it has a ‘plumbed in’ battery conditioner and bespoke car cover.
A beautiful 'collector quality' car and still one of the most refined Grand Tourers of all time. Just over £40,000 when new, has time stood still?
