Wow this is really quite an ask, for a RHD. :shock:
ok, its a very desirable spec on the open market being XJRS convertible. But!
Not even the Lister cars do not come with that kind of "out there" ticket.

Owner is just 'testing the waters', I think.
I'd go for a Lister any day!
1997, 4.0 LWB X300 - Unlucky car but still a daily driver.
1988, 3.6S XJS - Never ending restoration project.
1994, 3.2S X300 - Accident damaged, October 2015. Gone!
1994, 3.2S XJ40 - Long gone.

Mint Lynx Eventers have entered 6-digit territory already, no idea whether this is rare/desirable enough to justify a similar price tag?
Do agree with the comments: rather a Lister for half that money and a 50K buffer to spend on petrol... Should be enough for the first 2-3 years of ownership? :lol: :lol: :lol:

"Free petrol" would be a nice bonus.
I suppose in years to come £100k will seem more normal, but right now, it seems at least double what any other is anywhere near.

...I understand it is unique - so it doesn't get any rarer than that no?
The Listers are vulgar and fugly. The Lynx Eventer is a truly hideous creation. This isn't. It's pure (TWR)Jaguar.
IMO all the XJS's are stone-cold classics - like the E-type.
Surely you would only be looking at this as an investment - and looking at E-type prices now who's to say it wouldn't be good value in the long run?
I wouldn't buy it - but then I don't have £100k burning a hole...

...if I did - I've always fancied a DBS....

The fact that he's asking this price is an indication of how far the market has come for these cars. If he gets even half, he's still doing incredibly well compared to a few years ago.

Jag are still making great cars and they're now throwing off the image of rusty unreliable vehicles that blighted the Series 2 XJ6 (still a great car). The naysayers who habitually ran down these cars have become the minority and these models are being seen for what they are: really great cars. If XJS prices start to boom it's only a matter of time before the XJ40 ones do too. The trouble is that the investors spoil it for the enthusiasts. But at least the decent examples will survive well cared for.
