1983 Jaguar Xjs,v12, 2-door Hardtop Coupe,barn Find, Project Car,rust-free on 2040cars
New Tazewell, Tennessee, United States
| It is currently in a barn. It is a 2-door hardtop,coupe. The body is very strait and needs only minor paint work to the hood and trunk lid. It is not eaten up with rust like most. It still needs some paint work due to sitting in storage. all the glass is in good condition. It is the V12, fuel injected engine and it is a monster with power-steering, automatic tranny, shifter is on the floor. The interior is in pretty nice, usable condition.Has a sun roof and does not appear to have leaked. Most options work, to the best of my knowledge. The car does not ever appeared to have been in an accident. It has set in dry storage for many years as part of a collection . The owner passed away and all his collectable cars were later sold off at auction.I do have a good , clean, title for the car .Please look at the enclosed photos carefully. I will answer all questions about the car, that I have an answer for. I'm open to reasonable offers. email me, or call (765)413-4411, you never know.
My reserve is very modest. Please bid to own. This vehicle is for sale locally and will be removed if sold thru other outlets. I reserve the right to remove this listing for any reason.
This car would make an easy fixer-uppr for the novice or die-hard auto restorer and would be be a fun car to drive. It still has that sexy Jaguar look that they seem to have lost in recent years. It can be yours for a very modest price. Give me a call, lets talk about it.But please, serious buyers only!

Whether you're looking at Bertone going bankrupt or Spyker facing (and subsequently resolving) a large tax bill, it's saddening to see an automaker having to sell off its factory collection. That's why we're glad to report that there are still some acquiring historic vehicles from their pasts. Like Jaguar, which has just bought the largest private collection of classic British cars in the world.

The collection of 543 cars was painstakingly assembled by one James Hull, a British dentist with some 50 dental clinics to his name across the UK and who was keen to find the right buyer to take possession of his life's work and preserve it for years to come.
Of those 543 cars, the majority are of British origin, including over 130 Jaguars. The collection includes seven XK120s, several C- and D-Types, a rare XKSS, eight E-Types, thirty Mark-series Jaguar sedans, nineteen XJS coupes and convertibles, some twenty XJ sedans as well as some pre-war SS models and Swallow sidecars and coachbuilt specials from the company's early days. Among the many noteworthy examples are a rare SS100, an alloy-bodied XK120 and an MK X owned by company founder Sir William Lyons himself, as well as Winston Churchill's Austin, Elton John's Bentley, and racing driver and motorcycle rider Mike Hailwood's E-Type.
Jaguar Land Rover is on a bit of a tech bent today. It's announced its new family of four-cylinder engines and a "self-learning" vehicle Range Rover prototype, and now it's announced what it calls the Jaguar Virtual Windscreen.

The technology is similar to other head-up displays and telematics recorders already on the market, the Jaguar Virtual Windscreen concept takes things to the next level to turn real-life driving into a video game-like experience. It's being demonstrated with data like lap times, grid positions, virtual racing line and brake guidance... even "ghost" cars from previous laps and virtual cones for simulated autocrossing. Just like you'd find in the latest version of Forza or Gran Turismo, but you know... in an actual car - in this case a Jaguar F-Type. It's similar to the Transparent Bonnet system Land Rover revealed a couple of months ago, but instead of rock-crawling, it's for the race track.
The system also incorporates gesture controls and could be configured to display instrument data, a video feed from a rear-view camera to replace the mirror. Check out the details and the video below for a closer look at what JLR has got in store for the near future.
Jaguar has taken the top spot among luxury brands in the 2013 Sales Satisfaction Index, an annual survey conducted by J.D. Power that measures customer satisfaction with the experience of purchasing a new vehicle. The English brand, not even among the top three luxury automakers on the list last year, vaulted ahead of Lexus, which placed third this year after leading the list in 2011 and 2012. Porsche, meanwhile, moved into second place.
The rankings are based on a point score out of 1,000, with Jaguar earning 740 points, Porsche right behind with 739 and Lexus with 737. Volvo, meanwhile, made the biggest improvement among luxury brands with a 30-point jump to 708, bring it up from 11th place to 9th this year.
J.D. Power has a separate ranking for mass-market brands, and this year Mini again tops the list with a score of 718, far outpacing second-place Buick with a score of 694 and making it the fourth time Mini has lead this list. After Buick, the next two ranked brands are both American and both from General Motors, with Chevrolet and GMC sharing third place with a score of 686.
