Good Good Good Acceptable Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles

The Jaguar X-Type was introduced in the 2002 model year. All 2002 and later
X-Type models manufactured after December 2001 include structural
modifications to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes (note:
information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the
certification label typically affixed to the car on or near the driver
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the
crashworthiness of an X-Type with the structural changes in a 40 mph
frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During
rebound, the dummy's head hit the roof rail and A-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, chest and right leg
indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this
severity. Forces on the left tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg

Release The Draguar! Building a Blown Jaguar Rat Rod - Roadkill Episode 7
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan do unspeakable things
to a '74 Jaguar XJ12, one of about 4,700 made. Namely, they cut a giant
hole in the hood and install a Weiand 6-71 Supercharger and twin Holley carburetors on the
350ci Chevy V8 that was already installed in the car when it was purchased
for $1,000. But things can never be easy, so the Supercharger installation is staged in the parking
lot of Gotelli Speed Shop in South San Francisco. Then the duo hits the
road, making their way to Sacramento Raceway, where they can finally
unleash "The Draguar" at the strip.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
