Default XJ220 and XJR-15: Filming headlights popping up

I recently did a Tribute to Pop up Headlights video, which featured tons of rare cars (Vectors, Cizeta, Toyota 2000GT) and I am looking to do a Volume 2 of this video.

I am looking to get video clips of the headlights opening up on an XJ220 and an XJR-15. I sort of got the XJ220 in the first video, but I would like to get a video of them actually opening up. Does anyone know where I can find these cars, or whom I can contact?

The first video can be seen here:

Thank you for your help guys, and I hope I can include these awesome cars in Volume 2!

Chris

I think it was mainly pedestrian safety. Pedestrians would get impailed by the lights sticking out. It didn't help with aerodynamics or weight, either.
