That Gentleman Swagger: Tesh’s Bagged and Bangin’ Jaguar

When I think of a Jaguar, I usually think of an old man smoking a pipe while wearing a terrible suit jacket (that or Jeremy Clarkson going “Jaaaag”). The four door Jag is considered a gentleman’s car, one for quiet outings or maybe some golf. Tesh Monkey though, has taken a normally drab saloon and turned it into a slammed down class act with a serious attitude.

This swanky Jag was started by Tesh and his friend with the goal to be one of the few (if not first) bagged Jaguars out there. “My friend that passed away this year actually pushed me to buy this car and he got me to buy all the air parts before he left. This is like my tribute to him really. We failed on the first car but this car was supposed to be the only Jaguar bagged in the world. I don’t know if I did it but it goes up and down.” Not only does Tesh’s Jag get down but it gets hammered to the ground.

When deciding on what style he was going with, Tesh couldn’t just go in one direction. Being out of New York, a city full of diversity, he turned this Jag into a melting pot of styles. The interior keeps a classy look that rivals a JDM VIP level. The paint and chrome have been kept just like it came off the assembly line to give it that old school feel and to go with that he chose a set of smoothies to set his sled on and of course there is his air setup which he borrowed from the Euro world.

This Jaguar has turned out to be a melting pot by taking small pieces from multiple scenes and not only has Tesh made it work but he has created a machine that will break some serious necks. In the end he has proved that you can take whatever chassis you want and make a jaw-dropping car if you keep at it.

      This feature was actually compiled by Cristian and written by one of our staff writers, Josh Wilson, but thanks for the kind words!


  • Gere

    Just put the original steering wheel back, or put a nardi, wtf is that?!

  • tesh monkey

    i cut the wheel so when i sit back in my seat it wont be in my veiw, you cant lower this steering column , and i love to cruise . the car was static at first , on cut springs. they dont have available aftermarket parts . the zipties are there because “thats what bish would do” i couldn’t find long enough screws. that lv fake stuff was from my other car that committed suicide on me . i just put it there for the memories.

    Good Job ~~~

  • John

    Why do people hate on others rides???? Freshenuff my friend. I <3 Haters!!!!!!

  • Doc Smooth

    The ghettofied half steering wheel pretty much kills this car. Clean car yes, but by no means innovative or a show stopper. Keep fighting the good fight though, You will make it one day.

  • Nitty Beat

    Ive always wondered what it would look like lowered. its nice!

  • brandon

    all this car needs to really be a melting pot is, some rediculous BOSO pipes <3

    really not a fan of that steering wheel tho

  • ugh

    that steering wheel absolutely ruins the car
    lose the switchbox and just put a nice built-in panel on the console.

  • Toepfer

    legit everything about it. Love it. Mad props. If I saw it in person I’d shake your hand.

  • Mr from UK

    Smooth look, best looking Jaguar XJ S3 I even like the big US bumpers!

  • dram

  • arsen

  • russell

  • RCVW

    PEACE 2 the homie TESH…

  • Peter

    Hey Tesh or for anyone else who knows please help me out!!! I have a Jaguar XJ6 and want to know where I can get the rims on Tesh’s? Thanks!

  • GC Photo

    Wow….I have two of these XJ’s and am working on them. I actually have an 83 that i planned on Black. But now I gotta get the smoothies too(which I think only 15×7 will fit and for anyone wanting to know it is a 5×4.75 bolt pattern).
    These cars have a great network of Jag lovers who know everything about them and they can tell you everything about them too. This is one amazing ride. Hope more people BAG these cars and keep this piece of history alive.

  • Jason
