Whatever happened to Steed's XJC V12 Broadspeed

The one-off green Jaguar built by Broadspeed used in the classic tv series The New Avengers used by Patrick Mcnee's character Steed.
See it in action at Silverstone @ 1:20 to 3:10.

Nice video! I always saw "The New Avengers" as a 1970s show, and indeed saw TNA before I ever saw the Diana Rigg "The Avengers".

The standard V12 in a four door saloon was good enough for 'just' 299 hp, no doubt Broadspeed breathed on this one a little to bump it up but just enough not to wear out the not exactly bullet proof auto gearbox.
Somewhat hilarious that in these episodes the producers tried to make the car sound as if it had a manual gearbox.
