In 2004 the US department of Jaguar asked the Californian tuner Bonspeed to make a special version of the X-Type to be presented at SEMA 2004 in Las Vegas.

The car was recognizable for the new body kit and forged 19 "alloy wheels, while new Recaro F1 sports seats and a 1200 watt Sony stereo system were fitted in the cockpit.

The V6 3.0 engine was enhanced with a sports electronic control unit and a Borla exhaust system to increase the power to 260 hp and to improve handling, new suspensions were installed with Koni shock absorbers and Eibach springs.

Built to advertise all the new components installed, the Bonspeed X-Type remained a concpet car.

VERDICT

In my opinion the body kit is a little too aggressive, but what do you think?

Thank you to Valentina Zanola for the cooperation

  • I'm not usually into body kits either - but this car still looks pretty good. Love the color. Love the concept.

    I almost bought an absolutely beautiful 2006 X-Type over the summer. A two owner car with low miles and stored in a garage its whole life. I fell madly in love with it - BUT it was WAY too expensive to ensure so I had to pass.

    • Magnificent specimen. A colleague of mine has one like it but the V6 engine is broken 😫

    • Indeed. It was mint, inside and out. I was really sad the day I got the insurance quote for it. And angry. Many many four letter words came out that day. I might have even made up a few :(
