The XJS represents the least expensive way to get into a V-12. If you buy one that has been neglected, it represents the most expensive way to lose your shirt. Good ones like this with 8,169 miles are rare indeed. They offer lots of power, good looks and a luxurious ride. XJSs are also the fastest growing segment in the Jaguar club which is a testament to the car itself and its future collectible status.

“Here we have a for sale a very clean 1989 Jaguar XJ-S Rouge edition. The Maryland MVA made a mistake on the title, actual mileage is 8169. The car is exceptionally clean and obviously the low mileage is unheard of. It has been garaged it’s entire life and I believe belongs in the hands of a collector. The only two cosmetic items I see are a deteriorating pin stripe and head liner coming loose in a few spots. Everything is original as it came from the factory. Don’t miss this rare opportunity……8000k miles!”
