At the time of writing this (August 2007) I had just made my 14th crossing in the channel tunnel that year and when I pulled in to the carriage one of these came in behind me. The noise that V12 makes in an enclosed space like a train carriage is beyond wonderful.

I was once given a lift in one on a blazing hot day in 1989, and it was my first experience of air conditioning in a car, very memorable. The world has moved on - in 2007 I bought a baby Citroen C1 for my kids to learn to drive, just about the cheapest car on the market - even it has air conditioning now.

However one of these lovely old Jags would find a home in my dream garage.

Corgi used the Jag XJS casting over and over again under different model numbers and in gift sets. This though is its first release in 1978. It was available in metallic red and in light grey. The car stayed in the range under this model number until 1981. Neither colour is valued more highly than the other. The model continued in production well into the post-Mettoy era and is found in a very wide range of finishes
