1994 Jaguar XJS Convertible Series III
Outstanding original car in for Spring service at Birkshire. This is the final version of XJS to be manufactured. The car received a new 4.0-litre version of the AJ6 straight six engine. In 1992, a convertible model having the same engine was added to the range. Outboard rear brakes replaced the more complicated inboard brakes of previous models. At the same time, the car received more aerodynamic front and rear bumpers.
In April 1994, substantial revisions were made to the 4.0-litre AJ6 engine and it was given a new name of AJ16, now equipped with coil-on-plug ignition. In 1995, the final specification changes were made and the car was referred to as the Celebration model to celebrate the 60th year of Jaguar Cars. Celebration cars feature diamond turned wheels, Jaguar embossed seats and a wooden steering wheel.
The XJS was discontinued in 1996, after 21 years in production, superseded by the XK8.
