t was in February 1975 that the last E-type Jaguar left the Coventry factory and, shortly thereafter, Sir William Lyons introduced the XJS, equipped with the large 5.3-liter V12 engine, which had proved its worth over the years on the E type III. The car reached 230 km/h. This model has had its saloon car body replaced by an "Eventer" type estate wagon, in the manner of Lynx, the usual Jaguar preparer near London, but this one was in 1990 carried out by the “Ateliers Réunis” in France near to Paris. The saloon car body was replaced by an “Eventer” break de chasse Style, as Lynx, the usual Jaguar preparer situated near to London, used to do. However, this model was transformed in 1990 by “Les Ateliers Réunis”, in France, near to Paris. The quality of the transformation work is irreproachable. The cost reached 185.000 Francs, including the restoration of the leather upholstery. In 2012, with 145 000 Km, the car was fully restored (new engine and new gearbox) Since the delivery to its current owner in 2013, the car has been used few times and did not travel more than 3000 Km. Comparable to the Aston Martin estate by its performance and comfort, this model is definitely one of the best “Break de chasse”, especially thanks to the speeds reached, and to the driving pleasure offer by the 12 cylinders at 5000 Rpm.
