Ultimate Jaguar X-type V8 resurfaces

Ultimate Jaguar X-type V8 resurfaces

After being hidden from view for some 15 years, an intriguing V8-powered Jaguar X-Type racer has now reappeared and is currently for sale at Gloucestershire motorsport engineering specialist CNC AWS Engineering. The car was originally built up by legendary touring car racer Andy Rouse’s company Rouse Hall Motorsport back in 2003 for a race series to be known as SCV8. The series was to use production bodyshells over a spaceframe chassis with 550bhp Nicholson McLaren V8s driving through a Hewland gearbox, but despite support from Jaguar, Peugeot and others, the series ultimately never got off the ground.


“It’s a fantastic car, superbly built and specified with the best parts,” says CNC AWS’ Alan Strachan, who was employed by Rouse when the car was being built. “It’s also significant as the last car Rouse Hall built before closing his workshop. We can offer it as it is or ready to race. It would be eminently suitable for Thundersaloons and a host of other series as well as a special car for Jaguar collectors.” If you fancy treating yourself to the ultimate X-Type then you’ll get more details from info@ cncmotorsport.com.
