cadillac,

That appears to be an XJ220S. He has a pretty obvious vanity plate.. The XJ220S was a collaborative effort between Jaguar and Tom Walkinshaw Racing if I recall correctly.

Quote:
In January of 1993, Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) and Jaguar Sport launched the XJ220C to compete in the GT class (Group N) of FIA motor sport. At the same time, they announced the XJ220S, a limited-production, road-going version, to comply with homologation requirements. It was easily the most radical supercar in Britain.
Although the standard XJ220 was clothed in a lightweight aluminum body, TWR's version replaced every panel, expect the doors, with [COLOR=#009600! important][COLOR=#009600! important]carbon [COLOR=#009600! important]fiber[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]. In doing so they added a front splitter, wider sills and an adjustable rear spoiler that gave the car an imposing edge and made the standard XJ220 look docile.
Overhauled out to 680 bhp, TWR cranked the twin-turbo V6 to its limits. Combined with a weight reduction that removed the stereo, air conditioning and heavy seats, the car could accelerate to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and reach 228 mph.
Only nine TWR XJ220s were completed and six of these were made as road-going S models. Almost all of the six cars have changed colors at least once and many made it over to America after Vik Keuylian, of Keuylian Motorcars, imported several.

Good info Mike. Here, you are always good for interesting facts and historical information.

Don't know if you spotted the post, but we have a new member "Neville" looking for info about an XJ13 in order to do a build with an original prototype engine.

Have you come accross anything that might help?

Cheers,

Unfortunately not. He has a real rare bird. He may have to go back to JHT for more help.
