That might be more about the driver than the vehicle :)

Original OVAKIL article featured in Street Machine in the 80's, is attached as a bonus in next weeks edition.
Wish they did a update feature.

I heard that he's got a new engine... a supercharged 5.0 litre V8 Jaguar engine out of an XF! Any truth to that rumour Biggus?

It is an XJL not the lowly XF.
The 5ltr Supercharged SuperSport engine is staying where it is.
I am getting the 7.4ltr stroker crank for the V12 ground down to Chev small journal pin size. If it cleans up at that good, we can work with piston pin heights and rod lenghts. That's where it gets interesting (and expensive).

There was talk over the weekend of a naturally aspirated high comp V12 that is available for sale at a good price. It needs the intake to be set up and would most likely end up fuel injected because all the hardware is there for it already. This is the most likely engine for next year at the moment.

The blown motor will be retired to another car that Gaz has - not a land speed car - and a blown V12 will continue to be worked on for a couple of years down the track.

The jag will be push started by the Interceptor!
