When a V12 XJS was not special enough, Paul Banham would make something unique of it. His company – Banham Conversions – was specialised in convertible conversions of existing cars like the Ferrari 400, Aston Martin DBS and Rolls-Royce Corniche. It stopped doing business in 2004.
This car is based on a 1980 Jaguar XJS V12. And the XJ SS naming also refers to the 1957 XKSS. The custom designed body is made of fibreglass and the hood was built around a steel framework. Making the exterior really unique compared to a “standard” XJS.
Both the interior and engine are original Jaguar. Thus the 5.3 litre V12 packs a serious punch with +240 hp. The crème leather upholstery with red piping, combined with the abundance of wood makes this an instant recognizable Jaguar.
This Jaguar XJ SS is being offered by Gallery Brummen (NL).
