Autotrader Find: 1994 Jaguar XJS V12 With 18,000 Miles

As is often the case with sporty or collectible cars, the Jaguar XJS V12 is easy to find in nice condition. Many people bought them late in life and rarely drove them or drove them sparingly as a second or third car, but it’s rare to see one this nice.

This 1994 Jaguar XJS V12, finished in dark green with a beige leather interior, has traveled just 17,896 miles from new — that’s an amazing feat, considering it’s a 25-year-old vehicle. It’s truly an impressive specimen of the later version of the car, which was sold through the 1996 model year.

For the uninitiated, the XJS is the vehicle that replaced the Jaguar E-Type in the 1970s, and different variants came along over the next few decades. This model, part of the Series III group that was built from 1991 to 1996, is sometimes considered the pinnacle of the XJS lineage, with the most modernized exterior and interior styling and a surprisingly potent engine — it uses a 6.0-liter V12 with 304 horsepower.

According to the Carfax report for this XJS, it was sold new in the Denver area and, surprisingly, it had accumulated 12,300 miles by 1998 and 15,000 by 2001. After that, it was driven only sparingly, hitting 17,400 miles in 2008 and taking more than a decade to add the next 500 miles.

If you’re interested in a surprisingly well-preserved specimen of the XJS, this one’s for you. It’s offered by CNC Motors in Upland, California, east of Los Angeles, for $24,999. Find a Jaguar XJS for sale
