Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this incredibly designed 1974 Jaguar E-Type. This Jag is equipped with the V12 that runs and sounds fantastic and is sure to make your blood pulse as you step on the accelerator and get up to speed. This car is like an adult carnival ride but equipped with all of the comforts you would expect in a modern car.

To start this E-Type has power steering, power brakes, and ice-cold air conditioning. With the top up it is ice cold! But who wants the top up in an E-type??? Release those latches, pull that immaculate cloth top down and jump into that plush driver's seat and let this vintage cat take you where very few have gone before - on your way to the E-Type highway. This car handles like nothing you have driven before and will easily cruise along at 70+ miles per hour while asking for more.

Now, there are many vintage cars on the marketplace and thanks to the internet one can find anything you are looking for but don't let this little feline pass you by. This well preserved and meticulously maintained Jag has rounded up just 85,000 actual miles from new and is being represented by the 2nd owner who maintained and garaged this beauty. This roadster shows very nicely and is the perfect addition to a collection or ready to be enjoyed as this little tiger has as strong heart beat and plenty of muscle.

Plenty of refinements were given at the time to those lucky few who acquired these gorgeous cars new making this car an unbelievable car to own and one of the most beautiful cars of all time. From the shifter, full assortment of Smiths gauges and working West German Kienzle clock this car is of a quality you hardly see anymore.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport


Engine: 327 V8
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 0 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to present this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. We all dreamed about finding a “unicorn” car. A car so rare it sends the collector car world into a frenzy. There are very few cars that call mass hysteria. The ones that come to mind are the 1966 Shelby Cobra twin-turbocharged “Super Snake” (2 made 1 survivor) or a “Dodge Daytona”, another limited production car. If you can locate one of these cars, they bring six and seven figures in the collector car world. So, if these cars are bringing in that kind of money and are cars people know existed, then what value would you put on a car that never was supposed to exist? This brings me to the term “ghost”, or “phantom” car. These cars are vehicles that were never supposed to leave the manufacture for one reason or another. In this particular case, Chevrolet completely shut down the 1963 Corvette Grand Sport program deeming it against the corporate racing policy. There are five confirmed early Grand Sport’s, with talks of a sixth that has never been verified. In the early days of race car and muscle car production, manufactures were known to send parts and cars out the “backdoor.” What are we dealing with here when talking about this 1963 Chevrolet Grand Sport? This car was purchased from the previous owner who owned it for 37 years. The current owner bought the car in pieces and is responsible for presenting it now as a finished car. The previous owner resided in Michigan and started collecting parts to return the car back to its glory days. Once health issues started settling in, he was forced to move on from the Vette. The previous owner stated the car had its tubular frame replaced, which I’m assuming was due to rot. Once the current owner acquired the car in pieces, he began a journey along with a GM specialist, to restore the “Grand Sport” back to its hay day. After a long, extensive restoration period, the car is done in white exterior and red interior. You can see right off there are some very telling signs that this Grand Sport Vette is not one of the 5 or 6 that were raced. It shows newer style seats and reproduction wheels. It does have the cross-ram racing intake with the Weber carburetors. It also has a 1963 casting number block, and a 200 mile per hour speedometer. You’re correct, that’s not enough to say this is possibly a “Real” Grand Sport 1963 Corvette. The absolute two most important attributes of this car are its VIN and the TITLE. The VIN number reads S0837X10008 and the TITLE matches. All of the experts are sure about what this car is until it comes to one question they can’t explain. How does this car have that VIN number and a matching title? The experts have said this is an authentic Chevrolet VIN plate. So… if it is a “real” 1963 Chevrolet Corvette displaying characteristics that only the Grand Sport Vette VIN plates had, then technically this would be a real 1963 Chevrolet Grand Sport, right? The owner also states this is a Numbers Matching 327 engine, and 4-speed manual transmission. Is this a “unicorn”? A mythical car that somehow made its way out of the backdoor of the GM plant. That would explain why documentation is virtually non-existent. Options include Vinyl Interior, Kill Switch, Aluminum/Alloy Wheels, and Weber 42 Carb System. This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is for sale in our Tampa Showroom and can be viewed in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. For additional information, please call our knowledgeable staff at (813)645-6200 or email us at Tampa@GatewayClassicCars.com. If you would like to see it in person, come to our Tampa Showroom, located at 351 30th Street NE, Ruskin, FL 33570. Hours: Monday through Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM EST.

2007 Jaguar XK

2007 Jaguar XK


Engine: 4.2L V8 F DOHC
Transmission: 6A
Mileage: 31,145 ( actual )

For sale in our Nashville showroom is this beautiful 2007 Jaguar XK coupe. Jaguar has always been known for gorgeous cars that combine copious amounts of style, luxury, and performance. You would not be remiss to think the X150 generation of the Jaguar looks like an Aston Martin DB7 or Vanquish as the chief designer, Ian Callum, was the head pen for Aston responsible for this automotive artwork. Draped in a beautiful radiance red, the gorgeous curves of the XK are timeless in design. The interior of these cars are equally as beautiful, with large swaths of supple leather and glossy wood trim. This XK is equipped with the caramel leather interior, which pairs wonderfully with deep red of the exterior. The interior isn’t just performance based though the presence of well bolstered bucket seats and paddle shifters suggest otherwise, the luxury amenities are substantial. Features for this car includes satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, heated power seats, automatic climate control, satellite radio, and even a valet mode, because you wouldn’t want to hand the keys to a 300hp DOHC 4.2L V8 to the kid at the country club without knowing what he is doing on his break.

2001 Jaguar XK8

2001 Jaguar XK8


Engine: 4.0L V8 F DOHC 32V
Transmission: 5 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 55,627 ( actual )

When Ford took over Jaguar, all kinds of good things started to happen, including this 2001 XK8 coupe. It definitely has the Jaguar look, a combination of ferocity and elegance, and with only 55,627 original miles, this one has been well-kept and treated as something special for all of its life. The original luscious red paint has a great shine and looks as great as it does when it was new. The medium red suits the Jag perfectly, flashy enough to get some attention but not in an undignified way, which isn't the Jaguar's mission. Instead, it has a glow that looks luxurious, and combined with the sinuous curves of the XK8's sheetmetal, few people will guess that this car is 17 years old. An upgraded mesh grille borrowed from the XKR makes it look a bit more aggressive. The tan-colored leather seats are pure Jaguar elegance, delivered in a way that only the British seem to have mastered. They're all-day comfortable yet supportive enough for spirited driving, and thanks to quality materials, they show only modest wear that's totally in line with the car's age and mileage. Full instrumentation and every luxury feature you can imagine are included: automatic climate control, a power tilt steering wheel, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a great-sounding AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo, and it all still works! There's a back seat area that looks unused, and it's probably the most beautifully upholstered package shelf in history. The trunk is surprisingly deep and well-shaped, and the power convertible top stows under a matching tan boot to give it a trim look. Jaguar's 4.0 liter V8 was one of the first fruits of the Ford-Jaguar partnership, but it shares no components with any Ford engines. It purrs with buttery smoothness yet rips to redline when you plant your foot, and with a flat torque curve, it makes even this heavy cruiser feel light on its feet. These engines aren't known for being finicky, so it remains a superb driver that's entertaining from behind the wheel. A 5-speed automatic transmission and a supple independent suspension are willing dance partners no matter what you're doing, and the brakes are powerful enough to keep this heavy cruiser in check. Cool 2-piece BBS wheels were undoubtedly expensive and now carry 245/45/18 front and 255/45/18 rear performance radials. You can view this 2001 Jaguar XK8 in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle or have more questions regarding it please call us at (303) 872-4722 or email us at Denver@gatewayclassiccars.com.

2012 Jaguar XKR S

2012 Jaguar XKR S


Engine: 5.0 V8 F 32V
Transmission: 6-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 78,532 ( actual )

For sale in our Nashville Showroom is this exciting 2012 Jaguar XKR-S! Jaguar called the XKR-S the company’s “most responsive, powerful, agile, and driver-focused production car.” At the time, it was the quickest production Jag ever. Yes, it is quicker and more potent than even the XJ220 supercar. A big claim, however the numbers more than back it up. The XJ220 produced a stout 542 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque amazing for its time and numbers that are respectable today… however, the supercharged and direct-injected 5.0-liter V8 tucked under the bonnet of the XKR-S puts up 550 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 502 pound-feet of torque. Driving this big cat, you’ll notice that throttle response is instantaneous, and the auditory response is aural bliss. The details were not overlooked when putting this beast together, panel fit is superb, the interior is smart and well appointed. If luxury sport is the goal, this 2012 Jaguar XKR-S is the ride for you, sporting every option imaginable including Navigation System, Backup Camera, Bluetooth, Leather Seats, Heated Front Seats, Satellite Radio, Parking Assist, Supercharged Engine, Parking Sensors, Premium Sound System, High Intensity Headlights, HD Radio, Multi-Disc Changer, Keyless Start, Rain Sensing Wipers, Multi-Zone Air Conditioning, Automatic Headlights, Keyless Entry, Rear Spoiler, and Tire Pressure Monitors, to name only a handful of the features! For more information please feel free to call the Nashville showroom at 615-213-1800 or visit us on the web at Nashville@gatewayclassiccars.com.
