Notes:

Ive owned the car since 2010.original mileage was approx 62,000 miles and is currently 64,590 miles. The car had an initial full mechanical renovation at Hollygrove jaguar in dorset and I also made many improvements as noted above. I spent a lot of money on this car!

In 2013 I put the car in storage at Lake Autosnug as I moved to the USA with work. The car was in storage for approx. 5 years but well cared for and started/run on a monthly basis. In 2015, I had the car transported to KWE engineering for some additional work /renovation (see above) and in late 2017, they performed a full service and recommission when I brought the car out of storage.

The car was very solid from a bodywork perspective, but had numerous dings and dents, and a few areas of previous filler that were looking tired. I gave the car a full re-spray in late 2018 at MGV classics and I have photographs detailing the work done. This ended up being quite extensive and cost more than £11k.

This is an extremely nice XJ-S...Mechanically the car is superb, runs and drives superbly. The bodywork is now to a matching standard and you will not see a nicer example of this year. Interior is also in very nice condition but would benefit from a small degree of renovation to make the car truly concourse. I'd love to keep the car, but I have 2 more that need my attention and I've taken "Jessie-J" as far as I can take her. A fabulous almost end point car that needs just a bit of final tlc to make her truly exceptional.
