LMAO, Transam, im completely agree

this style lasted what... 20+ years without changing much? just the fact it was a V12 makes it cool... even if its quite unreliable

Well, walking half the time because your car isn't working is seriously uncool. This case it definately is a consideration

Well with the S type you get a toilet seat between the headlamps for those desperate roadside moments...

...and its based on a Lincoln LS.

I had to vote this car up to sub zero. I'll concede it has its faults which you've all mentioned, but look at the good points. It was a successful racer in Europe and the US (which the XKE couldn't claim), the engine was masterfully engineered, and I still maintain its long, low profile gives it great lines. But- the first car I ever drove was a 6 litre XJS, so I may be just a wee bit biased.

The XJS hardly has a racing pedigree...
