Tijeras, New Mexico, United States

 Classic 1979 Jaguar XJ-S Coupe V-12 fuel injected engine, auto trans, 4 wheel disc brakes, bucket seats, tires have a lot of tread left, spare has never been used, full sized new spare tire and wheel. Even has an 8-track tape player with the cassette adaptor.

This is a PROJECT CAR or for PARTS. Engine turns over freely with the starter but will not start. Engine still has antifreeze in it and the oil appears clean. The steering rack leaks. The seats have been removed but are included. They are sun baked and  need to be recovered. Interior has sun damage as well.

The body overall is in  great shape. The doors close smoothly with no sagging at all. Comes with a new battery. There are no keys for anything. There is no ignition switch. There is no trunk key but the latch works fine to hold it shut. The car has been repainted white at some time but I don't know how long ago. All glass is good. Odometer shows 26,662 but I do not believe that it works.

This car sat outside in the Southwest Sun for about 10 years. One of the windows was partly down as well. That's why the interior is so rough.     Clear title, in my name, and in hand.   I am the second owner as far as I can tell. Bought from an estate so the history is not fully complete.

I can deliver this car, if needed, for a negotiated price, after full payment has been received.      There are also many carriers who specialize in vehicle transport.  Check them out for pricing.

If you have any questions regarding anything about this car please ask or call 1-505-250-5798 . There is no reserve price on this auction.    Thanks 

This car is located very near Albuquerque, NM.

Exploring Romania's storied Transfagarasan Highway in a Jaguar F-Type V8 S

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 14:59:00 EST

Top Gear is, in some ways, a victim of its own success. When it declares a road the best in the world, like it did with Romania's Transfagarasan Highway during its 14th season, you can't blame people for showing up and wanting to check it out. Of course, then the road becomes clogged with tourists and is less fun to drive.
But is it possible that there is an even better driving road in Romania? One that is higher, smoother and undiscovered by tourists - at least not yet? Henry Catchpole from Evo thinks that he may have found it while driving a Jaguar F-Type V8 S that makes a sound that evokes a World War II British fighter plane.
Scroll down to take a brief trip to Romania and bask in the wonderful roar of this topless Jaguar.

Jaguar producing short film starring Damian Lewis from Homeland [w/video]

Fri, 30 Nov 2012 08:31:00 EST

Jaguar is working up a short film to coincide with the US debut of the company's new F-Type. Desire will feature actor Damian Lewis in the lead role opposite Jordi Molla as the main villain in the story. The whole of the action will take place against the picturesque backdrop of the Chilean desert with filming starting early next month. According to Jaguar, the story will follow Lewis as he plays Clark, a man who delivers cars for living. Things get exciting when he crosses paths with a young woman played by Shannyn Sossamon.
With music by Lana Del Rey and some serious production value, Desire sounds keen to take its place among great automotive advertising short films like the BMW Driver series. Jaguar has released a quick teaser, which you can check out by heading over to the F-Type site. You may also take a peek at the full press release below for more information. Expect to see the film debut early next year.

Jaguar Land Rover building new R&D center for hybrids, EVs, autonomous cars

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 18:01:00 EST

The success of Jaguar Land Rover in recent years has largely been down to a resurgent product lineup, but a recent move into the research and development will see the British-based, Indian-owned brands take the fight to its German rivals more aggressively than ever before.
JLR is investing 50 million pounds ($80,345,000, as of this writing) in a joint R&D center in central England. The move will more than triple its staff dedicated to research, from 150 to 500, with Wolfgang Epple, JLR's Director of Research and Technology telling Automotive News Europe, "In order to play among the big animals in automotive and to be anchored in the mind of customers you have to have offered something unique, to be first in market. We want to be one of the key premier automotive manufacturers."
Jaguar Land Rover's 50-million-pound contribution represents more than half of the 94-million-pound tab, on the so-called National Automotive Innovation Campus. Based at Warwick University, Tata's European Technical Center, Warwick Manufacturing Group and the Higher Education Funding Council, an agency of the British government, are all chipping in for the facility.
