Classic Car Auctions says:

Showing just 41,400 miles, this beautiful 1987 Jaguar XJS 5.3 V12 HE, automatic, 2 door Coupé has been very carefully maintained by its present vendor, a Jaguar enthusiast for the last 13 years, and has recently been serviced and a new MoT certificate issued in September 2015 at a cost of £586.

'D53 XJS' has looked out from the front cover of Jaguar World monthly magazine, with a two-page article featuring the car inside (April 2014), and an article was written about the car in the Jaguar Enthusiast Club magazine (August 2015). 

The vendor is a long-term member of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club and has previously taken this car on 2 or 3 European tours with the JEC and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This car benefited from a bare metal respray in 1999 and the original bills, receipts and a photographic record are all to hand. The number plate alone cost the vendor in excess of £1,000. 

Looking around the car it presents wonderfully, the paintwork gleams, the shut lines are good and it has a very rare factory sunroof fitted.  Amazingly the car is accompanied by a rare 'Barbie' XJS Convertible finished in the same colour with the same registration number.We kid you not!

With just 41,400 miles indicated confirmed by the 27 stamps in the Service Book and all previous MoTs plus the Handbooks, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, Magazines and lots of photos, the vendor believes that you would have to look long and hard to find a better example and having seen the car, we feel inclined to agree.
