Sorry about the late reply. I've been tied down with company matters.
This is a Jaguar XJS V12. The XJS replaced the E Type as Jag's premier coupe in 1976. It had many quality issues. Leaks and rust were major problems. The 5345cc, 295bhp V12 was smooth but unreliable. That said, the ride, handling and road holding of this car were fabulous. Steering feel however, was non-existant. As Ajmat said, in 1983, Michael May, a Swiss engineer gave this car new cylinder heads and the engine was nicknamed "May Fireball". Reliability and performance improved. I believe, this car was the fastest accelerating automatic production car in the world then. Jaguarsports' Tom Walkinshaw Racing tuned cars were called "XJ-RS". They had 5993cc, 320bhp V12 engines. German Jaguar enthusiast and dealer, Jochen Arden had managed to churn out more than 600bhp from the V12.
The car pictured above is located in Malad and I know exactly where it stands.

Ajmat, so is this Lister the same lister that made the storm?

Yes Rehaan,
Brian Lister was an ex-Jag man. If you saw the early Storms that raced at LeMans, you'll notice the leaping cat painted on the sides of the car. For so many years, the Lister Storm has been the class of the field in GT Racing.
They have an official site too. The Lister Storm uses a 7 litre Jaguar derived V12 engine.

That XJS has nothing to do with TWR. It just has a sticker. Its a normal XJS. Have talked to the owner at speedrun.

True. Those add-ons on the side are fake, and the owner must get rid of it as soon as he can. They really spoil the look of the car.

I think it is indeed a TWR Jaguar XJR-S, because if you look under the hood, you'll see TWR engraved somewhere, I don't exactly remember where. I have a pic of the engine and I couldn't see it in the pic, maybe its somewhere more below.

Atleast the owner told me its not at all a TWR one. I believe him.

There is another XJS, same color, same car ... but no TWR batches nor those fake exhausts on the sides, no rear spoiler as well. It is normally seen at Opera House.
