ZME projects

ZME has fabricated fast road Jaguars from early days and also completed several exact recreations of the XKC / XKD / XKSS / LWE cars to 1:1 accurate original Jaguar specification.

ZME also developed a LWE V12 OTS SWB car based at a standard Jaguar E-type S3 OTS car but fabricated of full alluminium inner and outer panels with the body and wheel base shortened by four inches and fitted with a 6.0 litre Jaguar sport engine altered by us to a maximum output of nearly 600 BHP by a huge torque starting from 1000 to 7500 RPM and with a top speed in excess of 210 MPH, a beauty with breathtaking performance at country roads as highways and easy to drive through the city as the engine would not complain at low revs either.
These cars will be fitted with standard european version XKE S3 cockpit equipment but with uprated bucket seats and toggle switches and come with softtop and hardtop.
