Not the most popular Jaguar ever made, probably as it had a tough act to follow after the E-type. So not many people will care that a classic Jaguar has been converted into this Pro street V8 supercharged weapon. But many people will care at how good this build is and that its not your usually pro street type of car. Currently on eBay Motors USA, auction ends soon 6th September 2015.
