Sporting the same blacked out color scheme as the recently featured Camaro Street Fighter, don’t let the beauty of this 1971 Matte Black Jaguar XK-E  fool you as this vehicle is most definitely a beast.

Ditching the standard V12 from the 1971 E-Type, Ken “Posies” Fenical threw a more favorable small block Chevy V8 in this car, a ZZ383 crate engine by GM Performance parts to be exact. The vehicle was built for autocross, and competes regularly putting down 311 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a Tremec five speed gearbox. The vehicle was given the nickname ‘Flat Cat’ due to the DP50 flat black epoxy PPG paint job. The 18 inch gloss black Dayton wire wheels provide the perfect finishing touch.
