XJ-S Pre HE - 1975

All of the first production cars built lacked exterior chromework and any woodwork to the interior, making them look very bland indeed. Prototype/press cars were built under the "N" registration suffix, but all cars that were made available to the public were "P" registered onwards. Power came from a 5.3 ltr V12 engine with either a manual or automatic gearbox. Very few manual cars were produced making them probably the rarest of all production XJ-S's.
