1966 Jaguar XJ13 Replica by Tempero For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Monterey event, 15 - 17 August 2019. The first of six reproductions of the legendary prototypeEquipped with a Jaguar 5.3-liter V-12 engineFrequent show participant and ready for anything Jaguar and Le Mans were once virtually synonymous, with the marque having won the 24 Hours of Le Mans five times between 1951 and 1957 with its C-Type and D-Type racers. The XJ13 was intended to be the car with which Jaguar would return to Le Mans to challenge the dominance of Ford and Ferrari.Construction on the original began in 1965, and the prototype was running by March 1966. However, the project fell dormant after the Jaguar/BMC merger later that year. Ironically, 1966 was the year that Ford scored its first win at Le Mans with the GT40 and its huge 7.0-liter V-8. Ford went on to win in 1967, 1968, and 1969. By then the Jaguar XJ13 seemed out of date. On 21 January 1971, the XJ13 was taken to a track for filming. Unfortunately, Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis flipped the car in a heavy accident because of a damaged tire. Dewis was not hurt, but the car was fatally a loss. After several years Jaguar repaired the original, and it now resides in the Jaguar Museum in Coventry. To experience the XJ13 from the driver’s seat was all but impossible until Rod Tempero crafted his limited run of replicas. The car offered here is the first of six examples built by the New Zealand–based company Tempero Coach and Motor Co. Ltd. Fabricated from the original plans; Tempero went to great lengths to reproduce the lines, methods, qualities, and materials of the original construction. The aluminum body was built on an aluminum monocoque as specified. It features the modified E-type front suspension of the original and mirrors the mounting system for the dry-sump Jaguar V-12 engine. Power is sent to the pavement through a ZF five-speed DS5/2 transaxle. The car was built to original specifications, such as the weight and dimensions. Rod Tempero stated that the curvaceous windscreen is made from the original Triplex molds. This very small production run was built based on an original factory drawing. The fit and finish of this all-aluminum Tempero XJ13 body is excellent, and the paintwork is complemented by the finely trimmed leather interior with appropriate gauges.The car has phenomenal road-handling capabilities and outstanding brakes. It is very nimble, responsive, and a joy to drive. The car has been shown in JCNA-sanctioned concours events and has placed 1st in Class several times, with scores of 9.992 at the 2016 International Jaguar Festival and 9.99 in 2015 and 9.986 in 2014 at the San Diego Jaguar Club Concours. It has also appeared at the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance and was recently on display at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, CA.The XJ13 is ready for the street or track and is an absolute delight—even more so on the track in the hands of a skilled driver, where it can achieve top speeds of up to 200 mph.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at - details above.
