The car was sold new at 'Sovereign Jaguar' of Hicksville, NY on 3/12/ to a reportedly mature female owner who took great pride in the car and who always garaged the car in her New York home and who drove only some 8K original miles. It was then sold in the year to its second owner in Austin, TX who drove the for some 5K further miles and who then sold the car to his close friend/colleague who lived in San Diego, CA; with all correspondence and documentation to collaborate all this information to be sold with the car. The car was serviced at primarily only Jaguar dealerships since new and had a recent complete service at 18,032 miles at 'San Diego European Motorcars' the Jaguar dealership of San Diego, CA and the car boasts a clean bill of health. From looking at these extensive service records it is obvious that at no time was any expense spared on this particular vehicles preventive previously stated the car has reportedly always been garaged with absolutely no history of any accident damage with all original factory OEM parts and paint, obviously owned by only very careful and mature drivers since new - never ever raced or abused! Powered by one of the finest, race proven engines built by Jaguar, the smooth big block L V12 engine (earlier XJS models used a V12) which was produced for only the last three years of production and completely discontinued the following year , it is an extremely low production model with only some models built! It was a worthy successor to the XK series of Jaguar sports cars dating from the late 's and this particular example drives exceptionally well - extraordinarily smooth and powerful - it must surely drive exactly the same as when it left the showroom floor over 17 years ago!Following a tradition of automotive innovation, Jaguar created an extension of it's mainstream manufacturing operations to continue the development of vehicles which more fully explored and expanded performance and handling potential of it's sedans and sporting cars.

JaguarSport engineers, based at TRW's Kidlington headquarters in Oxfordshire, England developed a range of modified Jaguars including the XJR-S and the world's fastest production car at that time, the MPH Jaguar XJ Both vehicles were built at JaguarSport's manufacturing facility at Bloxham in the Cotswolds, England. JaguarSport engineered a high performance version of the standard litre V12 for the XJR-S. Many of the same components which were modified for the XJ12 engine were modified for the XJR-S V12.
