Following the release of the sensational Porsche 959 and Ferrari F40 supercars, several other automobile companies decided to stamp their own influence on the supercar market. Jaguar’s director of product engineering, Jim Randall, wanted to field a car with the grand touring capabilities of the 959, yet have looks and performance that placed it squarely above the F40. Keith Heflet penned a gorgeous, low-slung vehicle with scissor doors and hidden headlamps whilst engineering focused on integrating a 48-valve racing V12 developed by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) with an advanced all wheel drive system. Initially shown at the 1988 Birmingham Motor Show, the prototype XJ220 was approved for production when 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. The company realized their original drivetrain was perhaps a bit too advanced, so the V12 was swapped for a 542hp twin-turbocharged V6 that had been successful in the XJR-10 and 11 race cars and the AWD was dropped entirely. As a result, 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 company began production, with the first cars getting delivered 1992. While the company originally intended to produce 350 cars (with customer order numbers proudly displayed on sill plates), the company ended up only producing 281. While the model was overlooked for some time given its lack of cylinders in comparison to its Ferrari and Lamborghini rivals, the XJ220 is recognized for its incredible styling and exceptional performance.
The marvelous 1993 Jaguar XJ220 featured here is finished in distinctive Spa Silver over an impeccably kept Smoke Grey leather interior. This exquisite XJ220 was produced in late September 1993 and comes fitted with a panoramic glass roof, climate control air conditioning, and, of course, its twin-turbocharged V6. Late in 2016, this XJ220 was sent back to England to the factory Jaguar Heritage Center where it received a full recommissioning at a cost of $105,000 before being shipped back to Connecticut where it joined a world-class collection. There, it was carefully stored, fastidiously maintained, and ran monthly inside a first class climate-controlled facility – ensuring this remarkable machine remained in like-new condition.
In the fall of 2023, this investment-grade Jaguar was sent to Jaguar of Minneapolis for a comprehensive service using parts purchased directly from the XJ220 gurus at Don Law Racing at a cost of $65,000. Thanks to its meticulous previous owner, this incredible Jaguar XJ220 is likely one of the most well-sorted examples available in the US and is now ready for its next caretaker. I personally believe the investment potential of this iconic supercar will grow beyond your imagination and is therefore offered to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who desires to own one of the very best at an investment price!

Finance rates as low as 8.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months
