With its understated British good looks combining with plenty of dependable power via an upgraded American drivetrain that's been seamlessly incorporated into the mix, this 2002 Jaguar XJ Restomod LS1 presents an intriguing opportunity. When it comes to major modifications like this car has received, skilled workmanship can make all the difference and this import has that thoroughly covered, resulting in a ride that retains every bit of its original stylishness while benefiting from a level of worry-free performance that would have been unattainable in its original configuration.
This '02 still features the same silver shade it arrived on American shores with and it's still looking very sharp - there's no doubt that there's been plenty of consistent sheltering included in this British import's upkeep. The well aligned exterior signals that it's also had the good fortune to have steered clear of any notable collisions during its lifetime and a clean AutoCheck report is on board for confirmation. Save for a lowered ride to confer a subtle aftermarket panache while improving the center of gravity, it remains in factory configuration and its set of contrasting 18" gloss black factory wheels really add some classy punctuation to the exterior, without disrupting its thoroughly well-put together appearance that provides no clue as to the substantial power that's been added beneath the hood. The factory sunroof opens and shuts without issue and, upon closer inspection you can see more signs of the attentive care this Jaguar has received - its headlights are crystal clear and every rubber seal is nice and fresh.
The tan leather interior has been freshened up with a new cover for the driver side bucket that blends in nicely with the rest of the seating, none of which shows anything more than very light use. Jaguars have always been known for equipping their interiors with a stylish array of burlwood accents and this interior represents the feature to good advantage - its woodgrain panels topping the doors, surrounding the steering wheel and ornamenting the dash are all in great condition. With an able Sony aftermarket head unit teaming with door-mounted Alpine speakers, this XJ offers a quality audio experience that can make driving in even the most mundane stop and go conditions more palatable and its factory air conditioning system is blowing cold and strong to keep you and your passengers comfortable while on the road. The trunk area is surprisingly spacious and well-detailed.
Beneath the hood, a fuel injected 5.7 liter LS1 sits in place of the original engine, offering far more power and vastly increased dependability. It looks right at home in the compartment - all the right steps were taken to make this motor swap absolutely seamless, so there are no errant wires or any other signs of mechanical discord anywhere to be found. Such a procedure often wreaks havoc with the instrumentation but in this case the gauges inside have been properly calibrated to reflect accurate readings. Save for a custom-fitted cold air intake, the powerplant has been kept in stock form and exhales into a pair of OEM-style mufflers that have been left intact for a nice, quiet driving experience - the LS1 left the factory with plenty of power as it was - and combines with a smooth-shifting 4-speed automatic 4L60E transmission. The factory independent rear suspension adds to the Jaguar's smooth, refined ride, while power disc brakes at all four corners provide plenty of low-effort stopping ability.
Its seldom seen combination of overseas aesthetics and American muscle makes this 2002 Jaguar XJ Restomod LS1 a rare find. Call today!
