Last Call- Jagster Edition

According to the H.A.M.B. board posting, this Jag V12 roadster is all homebrew—right down to the special Ford oval cast cam covers.

    Remember the V12 Mercedes that got claimed at a LeMons race awhile back? I've been waiting for someone to do something like this with the engine.

      I thought that was the plan. If I remember correctly there's an A Model with a Benz transplant somewhere.

    Stolen?
    Really…?
    WTF?! Who steals something like that…and what do you do with it once you've got it? Not like there's a thriving black market for carbed Jag V12s and heavily customized antique vehicles.

      That's just what I remember being told by one of their staff at this year's auto show (granted, almost six months ago). I'm assuming some kind of Gone in 60 Seconds style scheme, or some questionable insurance tactics.

    WTF do people do when they steal such unique cars? I mean you can't really do much with it and in many cases a lot of the parts are custom fabricated JUST for that application.
    I dunno, stealing Beige Camry's and Silver Accords seems waaaaay more logical!

      Ship 'em overseas by the container load. Haven't you seen Gone in 60 seconds? 🙂

    I know Jag twelves are not super-duper motors, functionally speaking. But they're still super-duper motors. If that makes any sense.

      I get it – Jag used their engineering powers for awesome instead of good.

      Yes. Yes indeed.

    The valve cover was the first detail I noticed, after counting the exhaust tubes of course. It was a "whaaaaa?" moment.
