V12 Jag is no playground toy

INSPACE, a supplier of playground equipment, has ordered its latest fleet vehicle, a liquefied petroleum gas powered 1984 Jaguar XJ12.

Mark Wozencoft, managing director at Inspace, opted for the classic for its individuality.

He said: 'I bought it because it is different. There is only one like it and it makes a subtle statement. It is the last of the real motor cars and is different without being flash or brash. We chose the LPG version, because of environmental reasons, it is a cleaner fuel and looks after the car better. If I'm racking up the miles, it won't matter.'

The Jag, which is to be delivered next month, comes equipped with a renewed 5.3 litre V12 engine complete with sports suspension.

Inspace has a fleet of 10 vehicles, including a Vauxhall Vectra and a Peugeot 307 which also run on LPG. KWE Engineering has supplied the converted Jaguar.
