8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By graeme@dbn.lia.net on 23 Nov. 1999
Format: Hardcover
This book contains a wealth of info on the XJ-S
From the initial concept to the final production, the various changes are documented.
All of the 'year' mods are covered as are the 'sports mods'.
Not a workshop manual - but - it gives you tips on what to look for in a 2nd hand XJ-S

THE XJ-S book 26 May 2000
By John Rosevear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Paul Skilleter probably knows more about the XJ-S than anyone else, and it's all here. He is British, yet he manages to cover details of all of the international variations in spec. Complete production and racing history, driving impressions, and sober buying tips are all included and all first rate. Highly recommended.
Great information 6 Dec. 2008
By Lindley Parkinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having just purchased a twenty year old XJS, I found this book to be just what I wanted. It is full of the history of this car and extensive information to the owner of one of these classy rides.
