The Jaguar XJS
Jaguar presented the XJ-S in 1975, which functioned as the successor to the Jaguar E-type. The design and development of the car was led by William Heynes. The first series got a V12 engine with the choice between a manual or an automatic transmission. The car accelerates from 0 to 97 km/h in 7.6 seconds and has a top speed of 230 km/h. The XJ-S was launched in the midst of the oil crisis. In addition, the XJ-S was rejected by the German authorities who found that the rear of the car obscured the view. This meant that every German buyer had to get permission for each car.
The second series of the Jaguar XJ-S was produced from 1981 to 1991 and differed from its predecessor in a number of ways. The XJ-S was renamed XJ-S HE, due to the High-Efficiency V12 engine. The engine improved fuel economy and increased the car's horsepower to 295 horsepower (263 horsepower in North America). A number of changes were also made to the interior and exterior of the car, for example the five-spoke metal wheels.
The third series of the XJS was unveiled in 1991. Again, several changes were made to the car, such as the rear side windows being enlarged. The rear of the car remained the same as designer Geoff Lawson felt they were part of the car's character. The car got a new engine and the transmission got an update. The XK8 became the successor to the XJS after a few years.

Maintenance on a classic car
Of course every car needs maintenance, and it can sometimes happen that something needs to be repaired. It is no different for a classic car. Because you like to keep your classic car in top condition, a good garage is important. Any garage can provide you with maintenance, but sometimes you just need that extra bit of specialism, then you can choose to take your classic car to a classic car workshop where they focus on 1 brand or type of classic car. The mechanics often work with the same classic cars and have thus specialized in maintenance or repairs on that specific vehicle.
