Hi there all, Yeah My brother in Law who happens to be absolutely mad about Jaguars has bought serial number 003 from the factory, it was a race spec works car that he has broken up, and rebuilt but with the original V12 config engine, the thing is that when that idiot Tom built the car with the V6 Turbo he left very little ectra room so we've had to lenghen the car by 11 inches ( yeah I know its huge already) I'll upload some work in progress pictures soon.

The car should be completed 3rd qtr this year, I'll keep you all informed as to it's progress.

Here she is stripped on the front end.



and the new V12 Quad cam 48 valve engine tuned by Lister is IN after the 11inch addition to the rear of the car's superstructure.

Well, if you sold your Lotus, I would say getting a decent XJ220 would be a good idea. They are fairly reliable for exotics, they are VERY fast, and they are luxurious.
I would say go for it, if you are so inclined....

I discovered Pagani Zonda yesterday. I was walking down ther street and I just saw this very interesting exhaust, so I went in to investigate. I love the interior, and the feel of it is very nice; The man who owned it walked out of the post office so I asked him about it. He said that because it is made completly out of carbon fibre it is very light, and with a 7 litre engine he goes very fast in it... the guy was only about 35! I love that car though, it is one of the highlights of that day.
