The XJ-S Was A Very Old Pussy In 1990

In 1990, the Jaguar XJ-S was already on sale for sixteen years. That didn't stop the British from making it for another five, but for the nineties, they upgraded the whole thing to keep it attractive for the lords. They also got rid of the hyphen, so it become the XJS. That's more or less five extra horses right there!

What you see here is a print ad for the old car from 1990. A little lube for getting rid of those stocks. Read it carefully, then I will try to translate it for you:

The XJ-S Was A Very Old Pussy In 1990

Have you ever heard of Enzo Ferrari? He said aerodynamics is for people who can't build engines. We can, even better than he did, so no worries! Your sleek battleship will create the same passion that surrounds Jaguars all over the world. This feeling is very crucial when you run into some difficulties on your way. It builds character, as you just keep calm, and carry on.

Inside, the XJ-S is very much like sitting in your favourite leather chair at the country club. It's all about you! If your relaxation is somehow disturbed by any suspicious noises in the background, the 80-watt stereo will take care of it. The thought of having a V12 up front is very reassuring: you can stand up against the Germans any time they bother you. And the French? We won Le Mans with our cars, which means so can you. You know what to do: 1-800-4-JAGUAR.
