So everyone is busy calling him the worst man on earth blah blah but he deserves it for cheating on Sandra Bullock. Anyway, this is flat black Jaguary XJR with some excellent wheels packed with some pretty spot on fitment. While the Jaguar XJR is a lame car choice at least he did his up right.
I found this gem sitting in a parking deck in Burbank, California yesterday while getting some shopping done. Pardon my ignorance on classic Jaguar’s but from what I can tell it is a Jaguar Mark VIII which was in production from 1956–1958. In that three year period only 6,227 were produced and this one was in pretty excellent condition. For a 4,000lb+ 50′s machine the car was rumored to have a top speed in excess of 106mph with a motor that only made 210bhp. A pretty impressive machine to be found just sitting in a parking deck in the valley. I couldn’t really find any good consistant pricing but I am assuming this thing would fall in around the $50,000 range if sold on the market.
Jaguar has had a stigma of older man’s luxury vehicle in something your Dad drove or even Grandfather if he were still around on Earth. Now Jaguar has built it’s fastest and most powerful car to date and what better way to prove it was to drag it to the Bonneville Salt Flats? They ran at 225mph breaking a new company record for the world’s fastest Jaguar in history. Watch the video above to see it all unfold.
