an old Jaguar XJ-C with restomod sauce

When the Polish preparer Carlex Design looks at the iconic Jaguar XJ-C from the 70s and gives it to their heart’s content, it makes a magnificent restomod that we would like to see come to fruition.

Produced only from 1975 to 1978, the Jaguar XJ-C is the cut version of the XJ6 Series 2. A true marvel of style, it presents a profile extremely fluid in the absence of any central amount. His redesigned pavilion it is also much more than a two-door “cut-off” version of the sedan.

Under the hood, there are originally two engines to choose from: the 6 cylinders in line XK of 4.2 liters developing 170 ch where the 5.3-liter V12 of 289 hp. Both are associated with a 3-speed automatic transmission or a rarer 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive.

Only 10,426 units (of which only 2,200 in V12) will come out of the front chains abandonment of the model, which makes it a prized collector by English car fans.

Special issue

Usually the Polish preparer Carlex Design sets its sights on current models, whether SUVs or not. But there, the firm has just presented its first restomod

based on the coupe. Still in the drawing state, this one sees its enlarged wheel arches to make room for huge modern rims. The headlights are also oversized and adopt LED technology, as well as the grille which nevertheless retains its original form.

Heart “big like that”

The original Jaguar blocks give way to a V8 of unknown origin but which according to Carlex would develop some 400 ch. What to train the machine with panache. The interior is also the subject of a big job with modified shape seats that adopt weathered brown leather and impressive woodwork scattered here and there. Not really adapted to the philosophy of the car, a roll bar a little “too much” completes the set.

Carlex plans to build a few units of this Jaguar in the coming months.
