Description

The cosmetic alternations include bumper deletes, as well as a carbon-kevlar lightweight replica bonnet with a specialized air intake and brake cooling ducts. A hardtop was acquired as well, and the entirety of the car was properly prepped for the dark opalescent blue that was about to be applied. Afer a few coats and much wet sanding and buffing the finish was near flawless and easily show quality.  While the rear end was out of the car it was completely stripped, powder coated and reassembled with polyurethane bushings throughout. In Addition the rear brakes were enlarged and wildwood calibers were utilized along with steel braded lines. The front end received the same treatment and all 4 corners received adjustable high performance shocks. All riding on a set of center laced Dayton wire wheels that are 205 wide.  The engine bay is perhaps where this car shines, it is totally rebuilt, balanced, blue printed, and modified with cams, light weight pistons, electronic ignition, spin on oil filter and last but not least custom programmable Jenvy fuel injection flowing through a Redline intake manifold that has been ported and polished. All of which are compliments of the experts at Team CJ, a Jaguar only engine Development Company specializing in the 3.8 and 4.2 Motors. All things considered this car is producing 320HP on pump gas, and is properly tuned to perform.
 
Power to the ground is put through an aluminum flywheel, new clutch, and totally rebuilt transmission with these modifications in mind. Totally new U-Joints throughout as well as a Limited Slip Differential means the right combination of clutch and throttle can put a smile on the users face in an instant. Cooling the car is all aluminum radiator with series 2 fans.
 
The car handles just as well as it looks, HD torsion bars, adjustable height reaction plates, and HD sway bars ensure this cat can get around corners with minimal body roll. The exhaust note is also pleasant through the Jet Hot Coated aluminum headers and stainless steel big bore exhaust system.
 
The interior was hardly put to the side during the build as well. It included a totally redone interior to proper specifications with only minor subtle changes. New saddle hides and total interior kit were installed along with a stereo system that has been tastefully integrated. The dash was refurbished as necessary as were all of the chrome items on the car. Overall nicely done, and finished off with a slightly smaller but stock appearing steering wheel.
