Although produced until 1996, this is a car that I have not laid eyes on for quite some time.
Spotted in Amsterdam, we have a 1989 Jaguar XJS in lovely shape. This is a very uniquely designed car that you will see in The Wolf of Wall Street, check it out!
Shining bright on a grey day!
It’s amazing how large this car is, however a sleek looking two door coupe. I gather the snout of this sucker is so long to cram in that V12 engine.
I have to say, I would be happy to get this missile hurling down the autobahn. Although, with that powerful engine, I’m sure it could quickly become an expensive ride.
Here is a shot of the Jaguar XJS nestled amongst cars along the canal.
This is a good view of how I would typically spot an endangered car walking about during my day.
Wow, you can really get an idea of how low to the ground this vehicle is…the BMW motorcycle is way taller!
Here is a closer look from the right rear side.
This car has one large front hood. It goes on forever, perhaps only challenged in length by a Corvette Stingray from the late 1970s.
And it also has quite a rear end to it. Look at the size of the trunk! Just toss those golf clubs in the back and go!
All in all a sleek looking serpent of a car.
Here is another look at the side angle of this shiny Jaguar XJS, and a look at the “crosslace” road wheels.
Did I mention this coupe has a V12 engine. A total rocket that apparently handled very well.
I see a lot of design elements in the 1988 and 1989 Jaguar XJS coming from the likes of late 1970’s Corvette Stingrays, Camaros, and Trans Am’s.
Not quite as tough as the muscle cars but a good looking coupe.
Here is another look at the right rear of the XJS.
And another look at the large trunk. I am amazed at how big this sporty coupe really is!
And there you have it another impressive endangered car, the 1989 Jaguar XJS obviously found on the streets and canals of Amsterdam.
