This is my private car. I am not a dealer. This car has never been taken apart and put back together. It is an extremely solid , a beautiful driving E-type with plenty of power and torque. It is an extremely comfortable car and  highway worthy . It handles beautifully and its 4 wheel disc brakes make it stop quickly and safely. The body gaps ,door fit, hatch fit and bonnet are like they left the factory. The floors are solid and all four jacking points are solid. The engine starts first time everytime and has that wonderful sounding exhaust .It has great oil pressure, around 55-60 at start up and 45 running. The engine is sweet and strong with no smoking. The transmission shifts smoothly and flawlessly. It does drip a few drops of fluid after a run but nothing serious.  The interior is all original and has great patina plus all original seat belts.The floor rugs are in great condition.  The headliner is beautiful with no sagging . The spare tire wheel well is totally solid and has the original padding glued to the floor from the factory. The spare tire is the original tire that came with the car but I would recommend using it strictly on the show circuit. The original jacking tools and vinyl pouch are in the spare tire well with the spare tire. The car has new wire wheels and tires with less than 1 thousand miles on them. Chrome is all original and in very good condition showing normal wear. All lights and lenses are in great condition with no cracks or broken pieces. Weather stripping is all original and does show its age in spots. All the glass is in great condition with no cracks or broken areas. All the gauges work except for the clock. The A/C unit turns on but doesn't blow cold and one plastic air regulator is missing a few louvers. The heater,windshield wipers ,lights etc. all work as they should. The body is very straight and the underside is very solid. This car has always been garaged and maintained . The previous owner was a collector who garaged the car in his multi car garage for the 10 years that he  owned it. I don't have any history beyond that. I've owned many e-types over the years , but this one is definately one of the most comfortable ,driveable and  roomy e-type I've  ever owned. Just get in it and go !!!
The car has always been  signal red with black leather interior. It has one repaint  by the previous owner when he first bought the car. The paint has a very high luster and looks great from 5 to ten feet away. On close inspection it has its imperfections but with a very shiny luster plus the previous owner used a  tiny artist brush extensively to apply touch up paint  to cover up small rock chips etc. There are a few small scraps on the fender arches to note. One in front of the drivers front fender and one behind the drivers front fender. One behind the passenger rear tire and one on the passenger front fender. Nothing major but they don't show up that well in the pictures. The voltage regulator , alternator  ,battery ,spark plugs all replaced  2/12 .  Car is ready to be driven and enjoyed. Please look at all the pictures on the ebay auction but also the many other pictures I posted on my separate shutterfly web site. Please e-mail me at domejag@aol.com to get the exact link for over 100 additional pictures. There are many detailed  underside, interior, exterior photo's of this beautiful car for your review.  The car comes with a very nice car cover ,a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and the original owners manual ,documenting this cars originality and pedigree.

Jaguar rolls out 2014 XJ updates

Tue, 20 Aug 2013 11:39:00 EST

It may be an uphill battle with Mercedes-Benz having rolled out its all-new S-Class, but in an effort to entice more customers towards its flagship sedan, Jaguar has announced a series of enhancements for the XJ.
A number of upgrades aim to make the long-wheelbase model that much more accommodating, with new airline-style rear seats that recline, massage and optimize the headroom in the back. The rear suspension has also been recalibrated for comfort, and there's a new optional Meridian sound system with a Conversation Assist feature that uses microphones in the headliner to pick up occupants' voices and pipe them through the speakers to support the art of conversation in motion.
The engine range carries over unchanged, but each engine is now mated to an eight-speed automatic with an available stop/start system which Jaguar says takes less time to restart the engine than it takes for the driver to move his or her right foot from brake to gas. Full details in the press release below.

Porsche 911 Turbo and Nissan GT-R Nismo star in World's Greatest Drag Race 4

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:01:00 EST

We love Motor Trend's annual World's Greatest Drag Race video. Now back for its fourth appearance, the idea of lining some of the world's fastest cars up for a ten-wide, straight-line, full-throttle run is, well... it's pretty freaking badass.
The lineup this year boasts some impressively fast cars to be sure. The group of ten includes the following darlings: Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW i8, BMW M4, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Ford Fiesta ST, Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, Nissan GT-R Nismo, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Subaru WRX STI and, last but not least, the Volkswagen GTI. Give us any one of those for the weekend, and we're happy to take the keys.
It must be said though, that for a publication that draws as much water as Motor Trend does, there are some big cars that we might expect to be here instead. The Lamborghini Huracán or Ferrari 458 Speciale would have added some exotic flare to the list, and the omissions of the Chevy Corvette Stingray (for the second year in a row) and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat are real head-scratchers.

Jaguar Project 7 Concept

Mon, 26 Aug 2013 11:57:00 EST

The Jaguar Project 7 Concept debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed just last month. But unlike most concepts, which serve only to collect fingerprints on a stage, the track-ready one-seater spent its days barreling past the hillclimb crowds with Mike Cross, chief engineer of vehicle integrity at Jaguar, beaming behind its right-hand-drive steering wheel. What's more, the powers that be at Jaguar even let yours truly drive the Project 7 during the Concurs d'Elegance festivities at Pebble Beach last week.
Built on an all-aluminum V8 F-Type chassis with modified suspension, the Project 7 (a name acknowledging Jaguar's seven Le Mans wins between 1951-1990) is best thought of as an F-Type masquerading as a D-Type. The two-door is fitted with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 good for 550 horsepower (no pictures as Jaguar wouldn't allow us to open the hood). An eight-speed automatic, with a torque converter, sends the power the rear wheels, allowing the single-seat roadster to crack the 60-mph benchmark in just over four seconds.
Modifications to the bodywork include a new lowered windshield, carbon-fiber aerodynamics and a rear fairing with integrated rollover hoop. The driving position has also been lowered by more than an inch, allowing the sole occupant to not only escape the airflow, but take advantage of a lower center of gravity.
