This Jaguar XJ13 re-creation features a custom-made welded aluminum monocoque tub wrapped in fiberglass bodywork and is reportedly the lone chassis produced by The Sports Car Factory of Frederick, Maryland, between 2005 and 2014. After being sold to its first owner, the car was completed in 2015 by Performance Classics of Cleves, Ohio, who installed a mid-mounted 6.0-liter Jaguar V12 topped with six Weber carburetors and paired with a Porsche G50 six-speed manual transaxle with a limited-slip differential. Finished in Brooklands Green, the car also features Wilwood disc brakes with dual master cylinders, four-wheel independent suspension with QA1 adjustable coilovers, Dayton chrome wire wheels, PerTronix electronic ignition, an aluminum radiator, three Spal cooling fans, bucket seats upholstered in green with yellow piping, and a black fabric tonneau cover. The car was acquired by the seller from its previous owner in California three years ago and has since been moved to Hawaii and then Florida. This XJ13 re-creation shows approximately 1k miles and is now offered in Fernandina Beach, Florida, with a clean Montana title in the name of the seller’s LLC listing the car as a 1973 Jaguar XJ.
This reproduction is said to have been created using molds, tooling, and design rights obtained by The Sports Car Factory’s Rich Dommers from Australian builder Denis Bedford in the mid-2000s before production of the SCF XJ13 shifted to Michigan’s Race Car Replicas. Construction incorporates a TIG-welded aluminum monocoque tub that was reportedly custom-fabricated by a Maryland aerospace engineering firm and carries aluminum front and rear subframes. Green fiberglass bodywork is detailed with simulated rivets and is finished in Brooklands Green with Ford silver Le Mans stripes flanked by yellow accents. Removable panels include the rear section, trunk, and doors as well as an aluminum louvered front hood with a single NACA duct. According to the seller, the car’s roofline stands 38.5” high. Paint chips below the doors are noted to have been touched up, and cracks in the front fender lips were repaired after being sustained during transport.
Additional features include a glass windshield, fixed acrylic side windows, an acrylic engine cover, faired Porsche headlights, Jaguar XKE taillights, a mesh front grille, rear fender scoops, recessed door handles, and a black fabric tonneau cover. Chrome-finished 17” Dayton wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-offs and are wrapped in Yokohama S-Drive tires measuring 215/50 up front and 275/40 at the rear. Wilwood disc brakes are teamed with dual Tilton master cylinders and feature custom aluminum rotor hats and ventilated front rotors. Steering is handled by a rack-and-pinion system.
The cockpit is configured in left-hand drive and houses a pair of buckets seats trimmed in green upholstery with yellow piping. The chassis structure’s bare aluminum is visible underfoot and on the sills and rear firewall. Equipment includes an exposed central shifter and inertia-reel shoulder belts.
The quick-release steering wheel with a riveted wood rim sits ahead of a contoured black fiberglass dash panel housing Smiths instrumentation and toggle switchgear. Gauges include an 8k-rpm tachometer and a 200-mph speedometer, the latter of which features an inset digital odometer showing just over 1k miles. Approximately 500 miles were added under current ownership.
The mid-mounted V12 is reportedly a 6.0-liter unit that the seller states was sourced from a 1993 XJR-S, although details on the internals are not known. Features include six 40mm Weber twin-barrel carburetors, an aluminum intake manifold, PerTronix electronic ignition, and heat-wrapped exhaust headers leading to quad exit pipes. Cooling is handled by a front-mounted aluminum radiator with a Spal electric puller fan as well as two Spal fans mounted in the engine bay. The carburetors were balanced and tuned and the timing was adjusted by an in-house mechanic in April 2021, at which time the spark plugs and wires were replaced.
Power is transferred to the rear wheels by a Porsche G50/20 six-speed manual transaxle said to have been sourced from a 993 Carrera and incorporates a limited-slip differential. Four-wheel independent suspension comprises aluminum upper and lower control arms up front, aluminum rear lower control arms, and QA1 adjustable coilover shock absorbers, the latter of which were fitted with stiffer front springs in 2021. Additional performance components are said to include the ball joints, tie rods, and wheel bearings. According to the seller, corrosion on chipped areas at the end of the exhaust pipes has been treated with Ospho.
