The XJ220 is the culmination of Jaguar legendary racing and sports car breed. The breathtaking beauty of the XJ220, a true Automotive Art masterpiece of the XXth Century, is matched only by its record-breaking maximum speed of 350 km/h - fastest road car of the period, full stop.
Only 280 of these jewels have ever been built, which is much less than the Ferrari F40 and even less than the F50 - the XJ200 surpassing them in power, speed and by it gorgeous beauty.
The pureness of its voluptuous shapes offers the artistic perfection of a modern sculpture : whenever one appears, a crowd of astonished admirers gathers.
This XJ 220 is finished in its ideal ‘’Bleu Le Mans’’ colour, and has covered only 1000 km… Classic cars with such an ultra-low original mileage are impossibly rare : they are in a class apart. Their absolute integrity is a dream for demanding collectors, and ensure the highest value for the future. One can always restore any car. But original, untouched condition cannot be bought.
Among a handful of automotive dreams made true, Ferrari F40, Porsche 959, Bugatti EB 110, McLaren F1… the Jaguar XJ 220 stands as one of the most exclusive mechanical sculpture with racing level performance and remains in history as one of the very first authentic "Supercars". The current market for this model can be compared to the undervalued EB110 in the years 2000, and as it happened for the Bugatti, will very probably be readjusted to its right level, on a par with the F40 or Porsche 959.
The Jaguar XJ 220 is still very undervalued and is the best opportunity to acquire one of the most extraodinary cars ever built.
