Born in Europe this Jag belonged to an American General who sent this car to Jaguar directly with the request to make it faster than any car on the autobahn. So a V12 powerplant was issued and installed directly by the factory to grant the General's wish. Vehicle was later gifted to a WW2 Pilot for saving thousands of lifes in a special ops mission that freed one of many concentration camps.The car is now in California with all BAR stickers. Unfortunatly the motor had to be tuned down to Pass California Emmissions but still has some nice power left in it. It was known around Europe for putting several cars to shame at the time when Jaguars had a horrible reputation. This Factory built one of a kind beast is truly remarkable and lots of fun to drive. Needs some TLC to bring back the shine but is still a great vehicle with lots of interesting history. It does run and drive. Interior is clean with just some signs of normal wear.
