If you're looking for a '90s sedan that can spank supercars, we're confident you'll like this Jaguar. It's a Lister-modified XJ12 with a twin-supercharged V-12 making a claimed 604 horsepower, a manual transmission, and lots of other upgrades. It's . You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
According to the seller, this car was purchased in 1993 and sent directly to Lister for a host of mechanical and cosmetic upgrades. The engine displacement was increased to 7.0 liters, and equipped with a billet crankshaft, polished cylinder heads, Cosworth forged pistons, bigger valves, new camshafts, a reprogrammed injection system, and other upgrades. With the addition of two superchargers, it makes 604 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque. That's more than a brand-new Jaguar XJR.
Backing up the increased power are Brembo brakes, a Lister suspension system, 18-inch Lister five-spoke wheels, and a Lister-designed body kit. The seller says the car recently underwent a full recommission, with a new clutch and flywheel, refreshed suspension, brake work, and more. It's with an asking price £79,995 ($101,144) or best offer. Since it's a 1993 model year car, you shouldn't have any trouble importing it to the US under our 25-year law.
