i thought the cars came from Shelby suppercharged? i was watchin the auction, on speedvision, and one sold there for like 240 or 260 thousand $. they were talking about how CS was disapointed in the power that he was getting from the Aurora so he slapped on a supper charger.

sorry, don't mean to be asking for your job.

Ye gods man..... a 427 in an E-Type?? Fine car, damn good motor.. but being a Jag fanatic I personally wouldnt put the two together, after all maintaining a V12 is the best part.. =) But each to his own I guess.

Nice shelby BTW :-)

Hey... My dad used to make a living putting SBC's into Jags (almost all XJ6's).
That V12 may have sex appeal, but it's 250 lbs HEAVIER than a 427.
I wouldn't mind have one, though.

Is that red thing on the Series 1's left a Z?

Jimmy Buffet was in town on Thursday night, great show. First time I’ve seen the show live. When he sang “Cheeseburgers in paradise” they bring onstage a couple of air canons, and launch cheeseburgers into the crowd.

I'm just now putting 2 and 2 together. Is it just me or does the Shelby look like the twin to the Panoz Espirante?

ANYTHING used on that car is going to cost cubic dollars, including the flywheel. It's probably carbon fiber/ceramic composite or some other flavor of unobtainium.
But I am insterested in knowing what it uses for engine management. I'll send 1FST2M6 and e-mail about it.

DOOD.... I bet that 427 in that E-type was an undertaking. Don't you have to do MAJOR surgery to that tube frame to fit a BBC into one of those?

Since Shelby moved over to the Las Vegas Motor speedway, one can catch a glimpse of the new things being designed... They are all sweet...

When he finally releases a new one typically the news comes over and covers it. One can always watch them from a small distance showing it off to the news stations.

But I'd rather have an Aston Martin over a Jag any day.
Unless I can have the Jag XJ220!!!
I think that baby will do 218MPH!!!
Didn't they only have a 6cyl. in the 2nd gen. XJ220's?
I know the first gen. had 12cyl.

get rid of the hood and the side scoops and they look exactly the same. The Panoz is made out of aluminum too, with 4.6 Ford power. Oddly coincidental.

aahhhmm... i believe, that the xj220 was supposed to have a v-12. however, when all was said and done, the engine wasnt. therefore, in order to make deliveries (as all cars were presold) they stuffed a v-6 into it and offered some sort of rebate on the car (kinda like what gm did to the original fiero's)

to my knowledge, i dont beleive that there was a 2nd generation xj220 (desgnation coming from intended top speed of the vehicle). there might have been a few cars that actually received the original engine later in the production run.

::stepping down off the soap box::

so, trav, where are the pics of that E?
