Jaguar XJ-S

From Jaguar press: The successor for the E-Type would capture the grand touring character of the V12 Series 3, rather than the rorty appeal of the 1961 original.

It is a testament to Malcolm Sawyers' design for the XJ-s that, however controversial it may been when introduced, it stayed in production for half as long again as its predecessor.

The fine chassis underpinning the XJ-S and its smooth V12 gave the car an unmatched air of luxury and refinement but its sporting potential was obvious.
