Jaguar wowed the world when they revealed their new concept/prototype car in 1988. The goal was an ultra-exclusive supercar with unbelievable specifications that can compete with any thoroughbred. As its place in history, many promises were made in the tabloids of engine, top speed and performance specs. After a few years of planning in the 1980s, Ford Motor Company completed their purchased of Jaguar. While the XJ220 project was kept alive, specifications were altered by the time production started. The XJ220 was fitted with a Cosworth-designed, 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V-6 as used in the XJR-11 racecar. With more than 540bhp, this propelled the Jag well over 200mph test driven by F1 great Martin Brundle. This made the Jaguar faster than the F40 and the Diablo and the fastest production car in the world until the McLaren F1.
This XJ220 was produced on January 7th, 1994. Originally sold in Germany where it remained until 2004, the Jag was then imported to the United States and sold to a doctor in Florida. It was then sold to its last caretaker, a well-known collector in 2010 and has been immaculately maintained ever since. The car was sent to Jeff Snyder, a well-known Jaguar restorer, for a new fuel cell, servicing and reworking the entire fuel system and new tires. After this work was completed, the car was shipped back to Jaguar in Coventry in 2011 and the factory completely went through and serviced all components including rebuilding the engine to exact original European factory specs. As the Jag was finishing its service work, the Aston Martin Owner’s Club invited XJ220s and their owners to show their cars as a special class at their Spring concours. The owner drove the car from Coventry to Oxford and then to a building in Bloxham, which was the original XJ220 factory (later became the DB7 factory).
Maintained and cared for regardless of use and with only 5,500 Kilometers, this is simply one of the best XJ220’s available in the world. It is in superb condition throughout and all systems working exactly as they should. This XJ220 is complete with its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, all original books – owner’s and service manuals, service records include all engine work, original first aid kit (still in its plastic), wheel tool and complete promotional and brochure material from prototype to launch.
A landmark model in Jaguar’s amazing history, the XJ220 is still the company’s fastest-ever production car. The XJ220 remains highly collectible, sought after by Jaguar enthusiasts and supercar collectors alike. With gorgeous supercar looks and top-level performance, this beautiful XJ220 represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the most significant supercars of its era.
