1983 Jaguar Xjs,v12, 2-door Hardtop Coupe,barn Find, Project Car,rust-free on 2040-cars
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!

Jaguar has moved its Range Rover Evoque-bodied tests of the production C-X17 Concept from icy streets to the legendary Nürburgring, as work continues on the brand's first SUV.

Really, there's not a great deal of new stuff here. Based on the number plates, this is a different vehicle from the one we saw back in March, which we originally identified as the upcoming replacement for the Land Rover Freelander/LR2. The details, though, appear largely the same. The biggest distinction we can see between the March tests and this are the US-spec headlights, which add amber reflectors at their sides. Based on these shots, it does seem as if the C-X17 should be a fairly poised road vehicle, as the engineers hustle it around the 'Ring.
Of course, as soon our spies can capture images of a production-bodied C-X17, we'll be sure to pass those on to you. Until then, take a look up top for images of the Range Rover-bodied Jaguar as it tests at Germany's Nürburgring. You can also scroll down for our March images for the C-X17 mules testing on public roads.
With tighter emissions and fuel economy regulations looming, Jaguar may have to do more than make a small, fuel-efficient hatchback to lower its model range's consumption figures - it also might give up its venerable V8 power, Drive reports. But not anytime soon, says Steven de Ploey, Jaguar's product and marketing director, who recognizes that the V8 can be replaced only by something that offers the same, or better, performance. But he has a word of caution: "We are not wedded to V8s."

In the meantime, de Ploey says there are other ways to reduce emissions. One of the first steps Jaguar could take is to shift away from the use of superchargers, which aren't as good as turbochargers at maintaining efficiency and making power. But he adds that supercharging still is "at the heart of Jaguar's performance proposition," and that the company has addressed the current downsizing trend by "replacing our naturally aspirated V8 with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6."
Consider one of de Ploey's comments on the cancelled C-X75 supercar (pictured) for some clue about Jaguar's future: "Some of the stuff we have already exploited to the extreme in the C-X75 is the kind of thinking for us and is an essential test bed to see how we could evolve from today to something that is sustainable in the future."
Typically convertibles are spun off of coupes, but sometimes it goes the other way. Like the Porsche Cayman that was based on the Boxster, the Lotus Exige spun off of the Elise, and the Jaguar F-Type, which arrived as a roadster before the coupe debuted. But if the latest reports are to be believed, Jaguar could be planning something in between.
According to Auto Express (which has, mind you, been known to stretch the rumors out some), Jaguar is toying with the idea of offering a partial convertible version of the F-Type - something Porsche would call a Targa (and which we would too if Stuttgart weren't so litigiously protective of the name). The additional roof configuration would give the F-Type three body-styles, giving its customers more choices.
It wouldn't be the only sports car to offer three roof options: There's the Porsche 911, of course. Ferrari once offered GTB, GTS and Spider versions of the 348 and 355. The Chevy Corvette has been offered in all three forms, as was the Pontiac Solstice many moons ago. But that kind of variety in roof configurations has become scarce. Jaguar's decision reportedly depends on whether it can make the business case or not. Do you think there'd be enough demand for a lift-roof F-Type?
