Because of bonspeed’s reputation for quality and the company’s luxury watch division, Jaguar asked us to develop a concept vehicle for the 2004 SEMA booth. Jaguar North America wanted an X-Type that could compete head-to-head with BMW’s “M” series cars.
bonspeed used their trademark look to create a new front and rear fascia, side rocker panels and spoiler. Known for their exotic leather interiors, bonspeed went beyond wild by installing RECARO racing seats covered in the finest Mullholland Brothers leather. The suspension was modified, a tweaked induction system was added and a Pearl Red paint was created that bonspeed calls “Match Head Red”.
The bonspeed Jag-X was acclaimed world wide and can be found on hundreds of websites from Russia, to Asia, England and the Americas. The car rides on our now popular production bonspeed Jag-X wheels that were created specifically for this one-off vehicle. The body package never became available through Jaguar.
