No, they put the fuel filler on the passenger side. You just put the driver on the wrong side.

What a tool. This gorgeous car is over 30 years old and he wonders why the vehicle has body roll. Hey dummy, ALL gas shocks leak after 30 years; go buy some bilstein shocks and problem solved. Do your homework next time and then you might understand it's racing pedigree (same V12 motor from the E-Type). These Jaguar V12 Engines are essentially bulletproof, but its all the GM parts, including its transmission, waterpump, & etc that will need to eventually be replaced. esvid.net/video/v%C3%ADdeo-if2j6yqZg0Q.html

Damn, the British are fucking awful at making cars. And what's even more hilarious is when you criticize their cars, they get all bent out of shape and ALWAYS assume the critic is a "bloody Yankee." The Jaguar brand is SO bad that its XJ12, when tested by a major magazine, had spark plug damage because of some design flaw in the engine. It cost a whopping $120 (around 1994) to fix the issue and of course, the factory warranty did not cover it.

I think it still looks good maybe cause I had it as a hotwheel

Doug is the weirdest car reviewer on ESvid. I like his reviews nevertheless but he is just so lame and uncanny.

The V6 version of this car is sooooo much better! My buddy bought a convertible one and it was awesome before it was totalled out in an accident. The V12 engine was a dog!

Try dropping it into second at 80. You might notice a different response.

Jaguar originally does not come with Chrome wheels. This is a dealer option. Dealer would send out the wheel to get it chrome plated and charge a fortune for the option, that's why the spare is not chromed.

I love this car. When I was a little child (born 84) I spent quite some time at my grandparents house. There I had a golden Matchbox(?) XJS v12 with black roof. I loved to play with it. Since then, whenever I see a XJS (pics, videos or in games) I just feel better instantly. A reminder on great times. I would never be so stupid to buy a real one, though...

I've had two, one of which was a convertible with genuine jag wire wheels....gorgeous cars both of them....all I'm gong to say is you play hot potato with these things....own it for awhile and cross your fingers, then sell it once you think you must...trust your gut instinct... They're incredibly smooth and if you keep your foot to the floor make sure you have a lot of road in front of you. Another interesting thing, I remember driving the convertible in a rain storm and never getting a drop on my head at 80+....no buffetting or other noise you get with other convertibles... I'd buy another one if I can find a woman-owned one owner

It annoys me how he says Jagwar instead of Jagyuar or Jaaggggggg

What's a Jagwar?
MrCapacitator Hace 18 días
Should be remembered that the XJS came out in 1975 so probably the design would have started late 60's or early 70's so a bit unfair to compare against 80's cars, the 3 speed automatic was crazy, you could get to 110 MPH in 2nd but that wasn't Jaguars fault it was just where auto's where at when this car was designed. I would love to see what one of these would be like with a modern box.

I have owned Jaguars most of my life. I fell for a BMW once and that lasted 9 months. Still own a 1989 XJS V12 Convertible. As far as I am concerned , nothing comes close to them. Best brand out there, for me.

I still favor the Jaguar xj6. I drove one from Carson City to Reno so fast that the telephone poles look like a picket fence
