The Jaguar XJ-S was a luxury grand tourer produced in England from 1975-1996. Its predecessor was the Jaguar E-Type and was replaced by the Jaguar XK8.

II. series was produced in 1981-1991. It was introduced to the market after a commercial failure in the 2nd half of the 70’s. It brought exterior changes, a more luxurious interior with rich wood panelling and more comfortable equipment. It also brought an increase in engine power and a reduction in fuel consumption, for which this model has been most criticised. It was powered by an upgraded V12 engine, which provided acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in around 7 seconds and a top speed of 240 km/h.
