The XJ220 claims a unique position among the handful of powerful supercars that emerged in the late 1980s. More luxurious and timelessly styled than some of the no-frills wedge designs of the period, the model began as the dream of Jaguar’s director of product engineering, Jim Randall, who wanted to field a car similar to Porsche’s 959. Jaguar Design’s Keith Heflet penned the gorgeous low-slung bodywork, whilst engineering focused on integrating a 48-valve racing V-12 developed by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR).Debuting to great acclaim at the 1988 Birmingham Motor Show, the prototype XJ220 was approved for production after customer interest skyrocketed. With the Coventry factory at capacity, JaguarSport, a racing concern co-owned by the manufacturer and TWR, was assigned the task of transforming the gargantuan show car into a tractable production model. Exchanging the original V-12 for a turbocharged V-6 that had been successful in the XJR-10 and 11 race cars, the development team was able to shorten the wheelbase by eight inches.
After suspension work at the Nürburgring, where the model set a lap record, and the appointment of a sumptuous interior styled by Nick Hull, the XJ220 began making deliveries in 1992. Five hundred forty-two horsepower and 475 foot-pounds of torque, performance numbers that favorably compare with many of today’s fastest cars, gave the XJ220 awesome power, quicker to 60 mph and faster (217 mph!) than both the Ferrari F40 and the Lamborghini Diablo.
The exquisite 1994 Jaguar XJ220 featured here is finished in the highly sought after color combination of Le Mans Blue over a Charcoal Grey Connolly leather interior. This late production example was completed in March 1994, has been meticulously maintained from new and was just released from a private collection. Today this XJ220 presents in spectacular original condition while a mere 1,929km (the equivalent of only 1,199 miles) are present on the odometer. The fuel cell bladders and timing belt have already been replaced and this supercar delivers just as much of a trilling driving experience as when it was new! Previously the XJ220 was a model that spent years undervalued and appreciated. By comparison the McLaren F1, the model that beat the XJ220’s record for “world’s fastest production car” in 1998 is a car today that consistently changes hands with prices in excess of $10 million. Jaguar’s supercar delivers comparable performance and with renewed interest in the model and limited production of less than 300 cars the XJ220 is quickly becoming one of the most sought after classic supercars for investment level collectors today! When seated in the pilot’s chair you are surrounded by gauges that are integrated into the driver door panel, while the full Connolly leather interior reminds you that this is an English supercar! The XJ220 represents the ultimate combination of English craftsmanship, engineering and performance that still rates comparatively of modern supercars. We truly believe the investment return of this meticulous maintained, incredibly low mileage Jaguar XJ220 will grow beyond your imagination in the coming years.
