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 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.

Here's what a front-row seat looked like in 2014 Mille Miglia

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 12:46:00 EST

From 1927 to 1957, the Mille Miglia was one of the great, romantic European road races of the golden era of motorsports. The cars were fast, beautiful and loud but also extremely dangerous and regularly claimed drivers' lives. After two fatal accidents in '57, the event finally had to reform and came back in 1977 as a historic rally held over the course of several days. That didn't make things boring, though, and Xcar found that out firsthand with a front-row seat to this year's race in a 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe.
Xcar was actually following the Jaguar team this year that included Ian Callum and Jay Leno in an XK120, which we previously got a glimpse of when it was covered on Jay Leno's Garage. Where Leno focuses on a more personal story of competing, this one takes a more macro view. You really get an idea of how crazy the Mille Miglia still is, and while the F-Type is way too new to actually compete in the rally, it can still wear an event sticker and drive with the vintage racers.
One amazing fact about today's Mille Miglia is that if you're competing in the event, there are basically no rules. The roads are technically still open to traffic, but the police shut down intersections and provide a rolling roadblock. Xcar's F-Type alternated between following on the course with the classics and snipping off chunks of the route to watch the participants arrive at each stop. Check out the video to experience fantastic historic rally.

Audi, Jag, Kia and Tesla top Strategic Vision 2014 Total Quality Index

Sun, 06 Jul 2014 13:03:00 EST

A couple weeks ago, J.D. Power released its latest Initial Quality Study, which gave high marks to Porsche, Hyundai and General Motors, with the latter earning more individual IQS awards than any other manufacturer. Now, it's Strategic Vision's turn, and it's doling out its praise not to Porsche, but to Tesla, which wasn't even included in the JD Power IQS.
The Model S was named the best vehicle overall in total quality, while Porsche's corporate brother and endurance-racing rival, Audi, was named the best premium brand, alongside Jaguar. Strategic Vision cited the Q5 and the ancient Q7 for individual segment awards, as well as the A5, which was a mere point off the top of its segment. SV also handed out compliments for the Audi's interior work. The win for the German brand is a nice improvement over its IQS score, with which it landed above the industry average, but solidly mid-pack.
Jaguar was without a segment winner, although SV did say that the Indian-owned English brand had a number of vehicles very near the top of their segments. This is the second significant win for Jag in two weeks, after it finished second overall on the JD Power IQS a few weeks ago.
