Jaguar XJ-S V12 racecar


car description

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
