1969 Jaguar E-type FHC
Unrestored Life long California car with a 1 Owner History
History:
This car Was purchased new in Northern California by an Employee of the Mare Island Naval Department of Defense.
He drove the car for some time. not long ago, he fell ill and decided to sell.
Mechanicals:
The car has been sitting for a few years, and would need the fuel system cleaned out at minimum to run. The car was
running when parked, and the engine turns over. The engine is numbers matching. The car shifts thru all gears well,
and it rolls and steers freely for transport.
Body
The body is very straight and would make for an easy restoration, The window was left down on the drivers side, and
over the years rain water would trickle down, and rust is evident at the bottom of the drivers side door. But that
is the only problem area. The floors are all original and un-welded, same with the sills/ spare tire area, all
original and no patches, Very solid as California Cars have a great reputation for being.
The paint color was originally Silver, and still showing in the engine bay and trunk area. There was trim pop
riveted along the body, which was removed, so Very small holes about the size of the tip of a pen are evident on
both sides about 6-7 Per side, but easily remedied.
Interior:
Interior is all original As well, the seats are in OK shape and will eventually need re-done, as well as new
carpet, and headliner, It is a good project.
Overall A very solid car to restore.

Jaguar XFR-S pitted against Mercedes E63 AMG

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 12:30:00 EST

It was Steve Sutcliffe at Autocar who got the tough job of comparing the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG to the limited edition Jaguar XFR-S on the track and sheep-strewn British B-roads. In UK spec both Mephistophelean sedans wrangle the same 542 horsepower, but step out of the corral and things look to weigh heavily in the Mercedes' favor: it has more torque, it's lighter, it's quicker from 0-to-60 and it's less expensive.
But that's on paper. Sutcliffe was given the job to see what effect all those letters and numbers had on the real-world driving experience. One of them is "an absolute hoot at the track" with great steering and weight management, one is "magnificent." To find out which is which, watch the video 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.

Jaguar C-X17 gets liquid metal finish for Dubai show [w/poll]

Sat, 09 Nov 2013 17:09:00 EST

We thought the C-X17 concept looked pretty good when Jaguar unveiled it in Frankfurt a couple of months ago. But that shade of blue, while nice enough, made it look like it shared more than a similar name with the Mazda CX-7. No, what a Jaguar needs is a more luxurious paint job than electric blue. And that's just what the British automaker has given its crossover concept in time for the Dubai Motor Show this week.
What we have here is the same C-X17, but repainted in what Jaguar calls "a lustrous Liquid Aluminum liquid metal finish," and we have but to agree. What do you think? Scope it out in the fresh batch of high-res images above and cast your vote in the poll below.
