Once one of the world’s fastest production cars, the Jaguar XJ220 Now it is for sale. Set to be auctioned at RM Sotheby’s Arizona 2024 sale on January 25 at the Arizona Biltmore, it is estimated to fetch as much as $600,000.
Only 281 of the 1993 models were ever produced. The engine has 542 hp and can reach a speed of up to 218 mph. This particular model has less that 5,000 miles and service receipts worth over $170,000. Daimler Heritage Trust certificate. The new owner of this beautiful coupe should be aware that, as with all supercars from the period, the vehicle requires regular maintenance.
Led by Jim Randle, a team of engineers worked on the XJ220 on their off time in what they called the ‘Saturday Club’. The car, which was made in a specially-built factory outside London in Oxfordshire, had a very limited production from 1992 to 1994. At the end of production, the car fetched prices up to £470,000.
The car was originally designed with a V-12, but it actually has a 3.5-liter turbocharged V-6 engine in the middle, coupled to a 5-speed transmission. Regarded among the most ambitious of Jaguar’s efforts, the car has a 0-60mph time of 3.6sec and revs up to 100mph in 7.3sec. For a brief time, it held the record for the world’s fastest production car and had a quicker zero to 60 mph than the Ferrari F40.
This model is chassis number. 220686 is a model that was built in 1993, late September. It was owned by several collections before it was sent to Jaguar Heritage’s 2016 service for over $100,000 worth of work. The consignor then commissioned Jaguar Minneapolis, in 2023, to complete additional service work worth $65,000.
