Ca fapt divers, mai exista un XJ-S auriu in Bucuresti, un import american din 1975. In general, totusi, modelele "grand tourer" nu prea au fost cautate in Romania, oamenii cu bani preferand decoapotabile sau limuzine.
A rare image from 2000, showing the "London Lucky Burgers" restaurant which operated for a time on Lipscani Street, next to the defunct Bucuresti department store. I doubt it had much success. In front if it are parked two impressive cars for the time - a Jaguar XJ-S (a HE, post 1981) and a Mercedes 500 SEC coupe. The Merc is on flat tyres, and the Jag looks to be a right hand drive model on British plates - so I wonder if both were there purely for show.
Incidentally, there still is a gold XJ-S in Bucharest - a 1975 American-spec model, imported a few years ago. However, thirsty GTs were never very popular in Romania, most rich people preferring a convertible or a large saloon.
