James Taylor remembers very well the disappointment among his petrol-head friends when the XJ-S was announced in 1975.
It was not a replacement for the legendary E-type; its colours were uninspired; and its interior was drab.
All credit, then, to those people at Jaguar who truly believed in the car and, over a period of nearly 20 years, turned the ugly duckling into a swan.
From the moment the XJ-S HE arrived in 1981, there seemed to be renewed hope, and from then on, the car went from strength to strength to become the much-admired grand tourer it always should have been.
The book contains:
- A timeline of the key events in the history of the XJ-S
- An overview of the evolution of the XJ-S from the XJ27 prototype
- Highly detailed chapters containing production figures, paint and trim options by year and technical specifications
- A chapter on buying and owning an XJ-S
- Appendices covering identification/serial numbers, UK showroom prices through the years and sales in the US by year
