The Jaguar V12 engine was launched in 1971 for the E-Type road car, but the design was originally created for the mad XJ13 LeMans racer. A few years later, the engine was stuffed into the Malcolm Sayer/Doug Thorpe designed XJS, which is/was a beautiful car from any angle…except from the window at the head mechanic’s office of your local Jag repair shop. These things are expensive and fiddly to keep on the road, but someone has to stop the Chebby V8 swappers from getting their hands on it. Plus, how often does a car come with “couple crates of parts”? Find this 1987 Jaguar XJS V12 offered for $1750 in Glendale, CA via craigslist.
