" We make no bones about it. We love all things Jag. In fact we love the touchstone British brand so much that we're going to dedicate a whole month's worth of features on the subject. From July 15 All things Jag "
The John Pope Special
This monstrous mutant is something to behold. We suppose it was a nice idea. Take a dinged up DBS Vantage V8, strip off the body and replace it with a bulging piece of Bedford steel. Add a hi-spinning turbo to each bank of cylinders, so that the engine produces close to 900 HP.
There you have it – an ugly-beautiful, howling monster conceived as if on Dr Frankenstein’s slab.
The car competed in something called, apparently, the Tricentrol Super Saloon Championships in the mid seventies and is now for sale, fully road legal.
