243 - 1994 Jaguar XJ220

 
 
 
Share
Registration Un-registered
Chassis Number SAJJEAEX8AX220620
Engine Number 6A10278SB
Odometer reading 16,798 km
Estimate £115,000 - £130,000

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 1980's.  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 idea 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.

Chassis 220620 was born on 18th March, 1994 in the TWR headquarters in Banbury, Oxfordshire and released from the factory with delivery mileage of just 382km.  It was decommissioned three months later but re-instated again in November 1996 when it was purchased by Mr. R. Colton who exported the vehicle out of the UK to Guernsey for a while. UK vat was not paid at the time of export although the car was temporarily registered in the UK with the DVLA under the number 'P443 MXP'.

Following that period, the car was destined to live in France at the Colton family holiday residence where it has remained to this day. During its time in France, 220620 was maintained by 'JFC Automobiles Jaguar' of Tours, France.  Upon its return to the UK a few months ago, 220620 was given to Jaguar XJ220 authority, Don Law Racing, with instructions to "bring her up to speed" in preparation for sale. Over £25,000 has been subsequently spent to include a major service, new fuel cells, clutch and hoses to name but a few. A copy of this important invoice is supplied for inspection.

Not only does the odometer read just 16,798km, this car is presented in immaculate condition throughout and having just one owner over the last 19 years, makes 220620 very special indeed. Even rarer, this visceral motorcar is one of just eleven lefthand drive XJ220 cars finished in Daytona Black.  As you would expect with a completely original and well maintained XJ220, enclosed within the history file can be found the original Jaguar Sport build record sheet and the original thank you letter from Project XJ220 Ltd. signed by Howard Davies. Also enclosed is the original vehicle shipment authority, the original release note from the Browns Lane factory on collection day, the original temporary registration document and the original leather wallet containing all handbooks and owner's manuals.

Interested parties should note that if this car is permanently imported into the UK then vat will be applicable and charged at 20% of the hammer price.
