[xj] 1992 V12 S3 for sale

There must be many of you who, like me, have lusted after a V12 S3
saloon. I just left Toronto last night heading west to Victoria (5 hours
by Airbus 300) when I opened the Globe and Mail to read an ad by
Grand Touring Automobiles, a Toronto Jaguar dealer. The ad was large
and simple: “1992 Vanden Plas (this means, for Canadians, a S3 V12 car),
98,000 km. FLAWLESS (in large type). #1 of 100. Black with parchment”.
Period. No price. This car is thus the first of the last 100 S3
V12 sedans, and it has contrasting piping on the VDP style (that is,
“individual style”) seats. It will have the brass dash plaque from
Jaguar Canada attesting to its exclusivity and number. The fact that the dealer
has advertised it this way means that he knows that he is offering it to
a select group. If money is not an object, and you want one, this may
be your chance (I presume that it is one owner and dealer serviced, but
that may be wishful thinking). I have driven two of these last 100 cars
and I can tell you that they are gorgeous: computerised climate control
with manual override, ABS brakes, CD changer in most, and for the rest,
all the beauty and elegance of the S3. Have I sold you? Fortunately I
was high in the air when I read this ad or I might be having to explain
to my wife why we need three S3 cars! If anyone is interested, I can
look up the phone number of Grand Touring for you. They are a reputable
dealer catering to the stock broker class, with the most opulent
showrooms imaginable. Ah well, black shows the dirt too much, right?
Right…?

                                         84 xj6 Sovereign

Unfortunately, even if I agree with the premise, I can’t see a little dirt
deterring you from such a purchase. Apparently, if the CXKJR newsletter is
correct, congrats are in order on the 2 you already have. As I recall, didn’t the
'84 win first and score somewhere in the 99.9 point range in the western states
concours? Now, should your desire get the better of you, would you have the time
to attend to all 3? :slight_smile:

Yum. That just has to be worth going for, Gregory!

I went to it, was worth it for the set of wheel though having to put two
on the back seat was a little
heart shuddering, approx 500 stands, all major clubs represented.

Yeah I nearly bought a set of the pepperpots that were up for �150 for a
set of four, including nuts. Was that your purchase?

A set of 4 Wolfrace Alloys with 4 new Avons, though 2 of the Tyres were
flat and no nuts,
the wheels have come up OK after a good jet wash and copious use of ally
cleaner,
and even the 2 flat tyres seem to be keeping pressure.
all for the princely sum of �120
A good days work me thinks.
