The Jaguar XJ220
Unveiled at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1988, the XJ220 was built to celebrate Jaguars motorsport success throughout the 1980’s, being designed and manufactured in conjunction with Tom Walkinshaw Racing.
First introduced as a concept car by a team led by the company's Chief Engineer Jim Randle. A plan of 350 units to be built, but only achieving 28, first delivery starting in 1992.
The 3,498 cc, twin-turbocharged V-6 engine produced a colossal 542 bhp, sending drive to the road through a five-speed manual gearbox, and two of the largest rear tyres ever seen, 345/35ZR18! The XJ220 was also one of the first production road cars to utilise flat floors and the venturi effect to generate underbody downforce, with the cars slippery design resulting in a drag coefficient of only 0.36, and downforce of 1,400kg (3,000 lb) at 200 mph (320 km/h)!
During testing, the XJ220 recorded a top speed of 217.1 mph (349.4 km/h) at the Italian test track, Nardo. This made it the fastest production car of its day, with Jaguar also claiming the car to have set a new production car lap-record at the famed Nurburgring in Germany, setting a time of 7:46.36 in 1991.
This Jaguar XJ220 was finished new in Spa Silver with a Smoke Grey interior, the same specification as it is presented today. Jaguar Cars Ltd delivered this LHD XJ220 new to Mr Paul Baines.
The car was first delivered to Jaguar Paris on 22 September 1993, before returning to the UK unsold then on to Jaguar Hartwell's in Bristol where it was sold to Mr Baines.
The car is finished in Spa Silver with Smoke Grey leather trim and grey carpets.
The car was sold by Classicmobilia for Mr Bains in 2014 to the current owner and was serviced by Don Law at a cost of £22,000 before delivery to the new owner with 1,248 kms.
The car still has all its original keys, hand and service books in the leather bound holder and full Jaguar tool kit, first aid kit and battery charger.
The car is still UK registration and has never been painted of been on the track.
