LC XU-1, XB GT, BATMOBILE, XD 351 GL POLICE CAR
This big cat roamed the world from 1975 to 1996. A grand tourer, over 115,413 were produced in its 21-year life. The XJ-S arrived in 1976 with some manuals, but the majority were autos. The XJ-S featured air-con, leather and timber trim and some say electrical gremlins were also standard. Under the long bonnet was a 220kW V-12 engine and in 1983 a Cabriolet arrived. Driven by John Goss the XJ-S won Bathurst 1985. Unleaded fuel blunted it with 0-100km/h taking an agonising 8.5 seconds. The XJ-S slipped as low as $2000, but prices are on the up with a 1989 convertible recently fetching $44,000. The best advice is contact your local Jag car club or specialist.
