Book Description

March 4 2005
A renowned Jaguar expert offers a comprehensive historical review of the highly collectable XJS series of coupes, cabriolets and convertibles with particular emphasis on quality evaluation, maintenance and upgrades. Jaguar XJS takes the reader through the 20-year history of a model series which, after a lukewarm reception in 1975 by Jaguar enthusiasts who expected a replacement for the famed E-Type, matured through many evolutions into some of the most stylish cars ever to wear the Jaguar badge, earning along the way an enviable reputation on the international motor racing scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE XJ-S book May 26 2000
By John Rosevear - Published on Amazon.com
Paul Skilleter probably knows more about the XJ-S than anyone else, and it's all here. He is British, yet he manages to cover details of all of the international variations in spec. Complete production and racing history, driving impressions, and sober buying tips are all included and all first rate. Highly recommended.
