ZME Projects 

As a passionated fast driver Tom owned at young age many cars like Ferrari  Maserati  Lamborghini  Aston Martin and Jaguar and liked them all but his most favorite where always his Jaguars and he always likes to improve them to the ultimate fast road cars.
Tom's current project is a LWE V12 OTS SWB car based at the standard Jaguar XKE S3 OTS cars but the body inner and outer panels are full alloy and the body and wheel base are shortened by four inches.
These cars are fitted with a 6.0 litre Jaguar sport engine altered by ZME to a maximum output of nearly 600 BHP and a wide and huge torque range starting already from 1000 RPM up to its maximum 7500 RPM and a top speed in excess of 210 MPH.
Its a beauty with breathtaking performance at country roads as highways and even easy to drive through the city thanks to its wide torque range.
Fitted with standard Jaguar XKE S3 cockpit equipment but with uprated bucket seats and toggle switches and comes with softtop and hardtop.
