I saw this in the news today, and I'm simply stunned by it.

Jaguar made a drop-in electric motor setup that will fit into any xk-engined car:

Custom LED display in place of the original analog gauges is one of the few changes from original.

There's some great YouTube videos too.

Makes my MGB project seem way out of date...
