1988 Jaguar XJS V12 Coupe
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
This classy Jaguar XJS V12 represents the pinnacle of British automotive engineering for 1988. Originally introduced as coupes, starting in 1986, a full convertible version was available through some Jaguar dealers. Founded in 1876, legendary Hess & Eisenhardt Coachbuilders were the exclusive firm charged with the convertible modification. Hess & Eisenhardt built 893 of these cars under contract from Jaguar before the official Jaguar-built XJS full convertible appeared in mid-1988. The Hess & Eisenhardt convertible differed from the later Jaguar convertible XJS as its unpadded top folded down deeper into the body structure of the car resulting in a cleaner rear profile when the roof was lowered. As the premier name plate in British automotive luxury, this Jaguar also provides ample power, with its unique multipoint injected 5.3-liter V12 that produces a stout 277 horsepower mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. The double-wishbone suspension is equipped with antiroll bars as well as power four-wheel disc brakes and power steering. Well optioned with amenities like power convertible top, air conditioning, leather heated bucket seats, power heated mirrors, power windows as well as cruise control and you’ve got the epitome of British luxury and performance that provides complete comfort for its passengers. As Jaguar’s top of the line grand touring car, this beautiful roadster is ready to be enjoyed during a weekend getaway or a top-down cruise around town.
