A forgotten racecar for a series that never actually launched.
If you’re looking for something unique to bring to the next track day, then this Jaguar X-Type might be a perfect choice. The machine was supposed to compete in the SCV8 Supercar Championship in the UK, but the series never came to fruition, leaving this racer an orphan.
All the SCV8 Supercar Championship cars would have shared a bespoke spaceframe chassis and a 3.2-liter Nicholson McLaren V8 making 550 horsepower. Different bodywork would have made them look like production cars with plans for the Jaguar X-Type, Peugeot 407, and Vauxhall Vectra.
This one doesn’t have the 3.2-liter engine. Instead, the seller is offering it either as a rolling chassis or with a Lotus V8 installed. Original drawings, paperwork, and spare parts are also part of the sale. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
