I'm sitting on the fence on this one a bit.
For me the front and rear end treatment looks a bit "bolt on" to me as in just stuck on over the original panels.
That last pic of the front end seems to show this with a gap and it looks a bit cheap to me.

I'd like to know what the tuning aspect is though.
I see it's got 450 bhp?
I'd be interested to see what has been done and how they increased the power.

I'd love to see what Chip Fosse would come up with.

Youre right phil it is bolt on if you read the write up it says that it slots over the existing body and as for the power it looks like they have started with the more powerful 380 v6 from the ftype s which if i remember right a remap takes this to 420-430bhp and with a custom exhaust would probably take it up to the 450 stated power so not a massive achievement really although it would cost a small fortune to take a standard XES from 340 to 450 bhp

Yep, I read the write up.
I think I'll wait for the good ol' boys at SVO to slot one of their nice V8's into the XE.
:D

I just hope they don't make it too "Max Power" as I prefer the iron fist in a velvet glove look!

Why ruin the appearance of an outstandingly good looking car? It's also a pretty quick in most of its guises. I don't understand why people want to do this sort of thing. Still, it's their money I suppose.
