A very special 1994 Jaguar XJ220 will be offered in Silverstone Auctions’ sale at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show on the 15th of November, at the NEC, Birmingham. This imperious supercar with Chassis no 220693 was hand built by TWR Jaguar in Oxford in 1991 before being exported to Brunei by special order of the Royal Family. The car remained as part of the world renowned car collection until September 2002 travelling just 2,272 kilometers in their eight year tenure.

The car, estimated at between £200,000 (Rs. 1.95 Crore) and £220,000 (Rs. 2.14 Crore), returned to the UK in September 2002 and then became the property of flamboyant champagne dealer before moving on to the current owner. Commenting on the stunning car, managing director of Silverstone Auctions, Nick Whale, said: “These incredibly rare cars are one of our favourite supercars of all time. This is a fantastic example with a great history and very low mileage. It’s such a stunning design that still looks good nearly 25 years on.” The car has now covered just less than 9,656 kilometers and is supported by MoT certificates dating back to 2002. ‘JAZ 220’ has recently had expert work completed by probably the UK’s leading authority on XJ220s, renowned specialists Don Law Racing of Staffordshire.

This car has had little use over recent years, which is clear to see from its amazing condition. Just 281 XJ220s were built over a three year period. With 0-96kmph acceleration in a brutal 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 343kmph the XJ220 was indisputably the fastest road car on the planet, albeit for a short period of time. “Having been overlooked these cars are beginning to catch the attention of collectors across the globe and we predict that values will continue to climb over the coming years”, added Nick.

Sultan of Brunei also owns one of the world's largest garage!
