The car presented here is a 1991 Jaguar XJ-S (Series ll) HE ‘Le Mans’ V12, one of 280 limited-edition models built to commemorate Jaguar’s success at Le Mans in 1988 and again in 1990. The Le Mans model added extra leather trim, 'Le Mans' motifs on the headrests and foot plates, quad headlights, 'Growler' bonnet badge, 16" 'lattice' alloy wheels and a 'Le Mans' boot badge to the package. Each of the 280 examples produced was individually numbered. To quote the original sales brochure "’The Jaguar XJ-S Le Mans V12 Coupe - a rather special motorcar in celebration of a great British achievement. Each car will be hallmarked with a build number, a promise of lasting appreciation.''

This particular car is production number 223 (of the 280) and is presented in the classic colour combination of Regency Red paintwork with Cream Autolux leather (with Mulberry piping) seats. According to its accompanying Heritage Certificate its original owner was a Mr WHN Fairweather, when the car wore the appropriate registration number ‘WF 873'. It went on to be owned by similarly high-brow enthusiasts before being stored and subsequently rediscovered by our vendor some ten years ago; seeing its potential, the low mileage and the inherent quality, he set about a full restoration/recommissioning of the car, completed to an exacting standard and addressing the weakness these particular models are prone to. It has been owned and enjoyed by this private vendor ever since, at many a Jaguar Club event, and has now covered a conservative 63,000 miles. It drives particularly well, with our vendor delivering it to us, a journey of 300 miles which it covered effortlessly. These X-JS models feel like 'real cars', from a motoring era of hand-building/finishing and of engineering heft. Their lusty V12 power and smooth auto gear changes combine to make these Big Cats the last bastion of old school Jaguar GTs. This particular car is fitted with a genuine TWR body-kit from new, which were very in-vogue at the time, making this limited-addition model even more desirable

Auction description:

Farnborough International Exhibition Centre

Lot Number 120 Registration H388 CSN Chassis Number SAJJNAEW3BM178589 Engine Number 8S0821985G Odometer reading 67,000 miles Result Sold - £12,320

This example is in very good order throughout and is presented in red coachwork over a cream leather interior. The paintwork is in very good condition and retains a deep shine and the interior is very well kept, with very few blemishes. Maintained regardless of cost the XJS Le Mans has had various works completed in more recent time including a full new burr walnut veneer, new air conditioning compressor and clutch, a new starter motor, new headlining, new dash switches, all fuel injectors overhauled, engine tuned and balanced, front suspension bushes and shock absorbers replaced, a new exhaust, and four new tyres. As such the vendor reports that the XJS runs and drives extremely well. This Le Mans edition is a very rare car being one of just 280 examples produced. Offered with a sizeable history file including various maintenance invoices, old MoT records, and the current UK registration document. Consigned by Daniel Godin.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
