Originally a standard 3.8 Manual with Overdrive model (confirmed on the heritage certificate,) this car has been modified with a rebuilt 1968 4.2 litre engine from the later Jaguar 420/Sovereign series with increased power and torque. Coupled with an XJ-S 5 speed Getrag Gearbox, Power Steering, uprated adjustable dampers, three pot Jaguar Brake Callipers and Black 6x15 inch MWS wire wheels fitted with new Vredestein Sport Classic tyres, this is a very special MK2. Body and interior upgrades feature Coombs style rear arches in steel, Coombs style bonnet louvres and XJ-S front seats in matching blood red leather.

The engine and drivetrain are smooth and powerful, the car drives and stops extremely well. The body and chassis are rust free and the interior is in excellent shape with just the right amount of patina.
