XJS S/C

Postby Simont485 » Sat Jul 13, 2019 9:25 am

In the latest Jaguar World Monthly there is an article about a XJS that has had a XJR 6cyl supercharged engine fitted as well as some other mods...….

I can understand why Jaguar never built it but it would have been an interesting model!

What a hoot to drive that would be. A manual too.
I imagine it’s the same reason they did not offer a 6.0 manual.
I think there was also politics from Ford, because of Aston Martin....etc.
If they made the XJS/ XK8 too good, why would anyone buy the Aston.

Replace the orange bulbs with silver orange, gets rid of the egg yolk look.

Yes looks ok I think.....fitted chrome orange bulbs too.

Also got some clear lenses for the front indicators...not Jaguar but should fit with a bit of adapting!
