  • To be registered - 813 km from new ! - Never registered - Sold new in France The XJ220 prototype was unveiled to the world in Birmingham in 1988. The car was greeted with enthusiasm and the decision was taken to produce a limited series of three hundred and fifty examples. As Jaguar was not set up to produce such a small series, the build project was given to Jaguar-Sport, a joint venture between Jaguar Car LTD and TWR (Tom Walkinshaw Racing). The heavy twelve-cylinder set-up gave way to a derivation of the lighter and less bulky V6 racing engines, allowing the wheelbase to be shortened by 10 cm. For the same reason the four-wheel drive option was also abandoned. The weight of the production car came down to just over 1400 kilos. The aluminium body housed an integral steel-tubed roll-cage. The aerodynamics of this very quick Jaguar resulted from extensive development, not only to aid penetration through the air, but also to ensure the car had sufficient downforce at high speeds. The tyres suitable for this specification were special performance Bridgestones. We are faced here with one of the fastest production cars in the world that, like the Ferrari F40, the McLaren F1, the Bugatti 110S and the Lamborghini Diablo, was capable of well over 300 km/h. The F1 driver Martin Brundle was timed at 341 km/h in an XJ 220 on the Nardo circuit . The car on offer, no. 27, was one of the first XJ 220s to be sold. It was delivered new in France to the current owner who has never had the car registered. This gentleman is over 75 years old today and bought the car for its aesthetic appeal. It has remained with its temporary plates, as its Parisian owner does not drive it - he is driven everywhere by his chauffeur. However, he does like to start the car once a week, in its parking place two floors below ground in the car park at his apartment. What's more, the tricky ramp makes it difficult to get the car out ! It is for these reasons that the car has only covered 813 km since leaving the factory ! It appears that these few hundred kilometres took place on the motorway as there are one or two gravel chips at the front. The doors of the XJ 220 don't open very wide. It involves a degree of contortion to get in, and leaning on the top of the seat, which is the only part of the interior that shows any sign of wear. The car's elderly owner must clearly have gone to enormous lengths to prevent the doors touching against the walls of his parking space, when getting in and out of the car. The carpets still have the original plastic covering on! The beige leather interior is in excellent condition, and the car has been fully serviced by the renowned Automobiles T.S.. Toni Sisinni, accustomed to these supercars, has confirmed that the brakes, wheels and tyres have never been changed and show no signs of wear ! It will be delivered to its new owner with its service book (that includes a service carried out in 2002 at 400 km !), owner's manuals and Jaguar certificate. Here is a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the marque's supercars, the stunning XJ 220, with negligible mileage. Moreover, the future owner will have the privilege of being the first person to register it !

  • French registration - Low mileage, almost new condition - Emblematic of the supercars of the 1990s A special feature of this Jaguar XJ 220 is its low mileage: the counter displays only 11,100km. Delivered new in France, this Jaguar has had only three owners. Number 26 of the series, the car's condition is almost new and comes with its invoices, reflecting the quality of maintenance the car has received, which has been done by the excellent workshop Automobiles TS, next to Paris based Lamborghini and supercars specialist. The engine was fully overhauled in September 2011 (invoice of €46 000), including accessories like the turbos and the fuel tanks. In July 2013 a full service was done for €4 500. This exceptional model was born at a time when supercars such as Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 were thriving. However, since the aborted XJ13, Jaguar had never produced a top level sports car, except for the XJR8 and 9 for Le Mans, pure competition prototypes. With the XJ220, the British brand aimed big. Initially powered by a 6.2-liter V12, the XJ220's highly sculpted body finally received a V6 twin-turbo 3.5-liter, which was less bulky and lighter, and which allowed the 550bhp of the powerpack to propel the car to a top speed of 340 km/h. Production remained rather limited, with just 281 examples made. With its low mileage, this particular example is a great opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic supercars of the 1980s/90s.

    The story behind the Jaguar XJ220 is an inspiring one. Professor Jim Randall, the head of Jaguar's engineering department, started the ball rolling by sketching out some ideas whilst on a Christmas holiday in the 1980s. It was the stuff of fantasies - V12, 4WD, slippery body with ground effects. Together with colleagues in the 'Saturday Club' at Jaguar (so called because they met out of hours and at weekends to work on unofficial pet projects) they toyed with the concept until Jaguar started getting genuinely excited by the idea and official plans were put in place to build what was to be the fastest ever road car. The Birmingham Motor Show in 1988 saw the unveiling of the powered concept with the design featuring a V12, fuel injected, 48-valve 530BHP engine delivering its output to all four wheels. Ultimately, the use of the V6 allowed the chassis to be shortened, although the proportions of this car are still truly impressive. The engine sits behind the two seat cabin, with a tiny boot available behind that. The styling is heavily influenced by the need to cool the highly tuned engine and also to provide sufficient downforce to keep the car steady at the 217mph top speed. To say

    So much has been written about the XJ220 in the 22 years since it started production back in 1992. Only 281 examples of this supercar were ever produced, much less than its direct rival the Ferrari F40. Bad timing, marketing and price increases meant one of the fastest production cars the world has ever seen can be bought for a fraction of the price of other cars to have held this title. The brain child of the Jaguar ‘Saturday club’ including members of the racing department TWR, the XJ220 promised a V12 engine and 4 wheel drive when it first surfaced in 1988, prompting 1500 deposits. As the car was developed and the UK’s economy crashed into darkness the project progressed with the TWR V64V which was also found in the XJR-10 and XJR-11 and the Group B 6R4. Producing 540 BHP but weighing in at only 1390kg the XJ220 is still one of the quickest cars on the road today, with the outright pace to out drag a Pagani Zonda and many other more modern supercars. Fantastic to drive, beautiful to look at and very rare the XJ220 ticks so many boxes and still is one of the supercars. This one owner from new example is number 147 and was delivered new to France in 1992. SF workshops have just ca
