You Never Saw a Jaguar XJ Do This Before

Drag Race

It may not be much to some, but to others there's potential.

Jaguars have always been good-looking cars. Unfortunately their build quality and reliability wasn’t exactly up to par for several years. Inside door panels were known to just fall off because they weren’t bolted in correctly. So instead of sending that old and broken Jag to the junk yard, why not tune the hell out of it? That’s precisely what these guys did. This 1970s era Jaguar XJ was outfitted with a turbo and stroked out, producing around 720 horsepower. And it’s really, really loud.

Not a bad way to salvage a beautiful, yet problematic old Jag. It just needed more power.
