This is what we call an impressive racecar. With its menacing front, wide wheelarches and ditto wheels it shows already speed without moving. It started life as a standard 1977 Jaguar XJ-S with V12 engine. In 1994, a German chief engineer working for Pirelli obtained the car and decided to convert it in a full racecar. The body received big wheelarches to allow 10x15" wheels, and a full bodykit improved the aerodynamics and cooling of the car. The engine is a 5,3 Litre Jaguar V12 race-engine, supplied by Jaguar specialist Zwakman in Holland. With 6 Weber carburettors, it offers 395 bhp and an even more impressive torque of 450 Nm. Thanks to a total weight of only 1480 kg, this is a massively fast device. As an example, it laps Spa-Francorchamps in a time under 3 minutes, which is quite fast for an historic racecar. The gearbox is a Getrag 5-speed, and also a Quaife LSD is fitted. Together with the Jaguar comes a file with lots of photographs made during the build.
For eligibility, this XJ-S has a German DMSB Wagenpass and a Belgian RACB Sport HTP. It will also be accepted in the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club Racing championship, where it will be a serious contender and possibly class win
