Two Jaguar XJ200's offered at Summer Jaguar Festival auction, May 11th at Heythrop Park

Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire, the first venue for the Summer Jaguar Festival, will be hosting the Silverstone Auctions May sale of British Marques and Classic cars on the 11th May 2019, bringing together some very high quality and exclusive lots.

In association with the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, Silverstone Auctions are very excited to be offering not one but two XJ220 supercars, one in left hand drive with 20,500 km and the other right hand drive with just 700 miles. This car was once the fastest production car in the world, with the record set by Martin Brundle in 1992 at the Nardo test track.

The left hand drive 1997 XJ220 in Spa Silver with 20,500km has recently had £50,000 worth of expenditure lavished on it by Jaguar Classic Works and comes with the registration “220 XXK” and with all details of the works carried out in car’s history file. This car is now in exceptional condition and ready to be enjoyed by its new owner. Estimated at £300,000 to £350,000. If a left hand drive XJ220 doesn’t suit, well you can have a 1995 right hand drive version with just 700miles in Le Mans Blue. This car was recently discovered in a private collection in Malaysia and brought back to the UK where it underwent £25,000 worth of work by XJ220 model experts Don Law in December 2015. Estimated at £325,000 to £375,000.

Two highly collectable cars which to date are still the fastest cars produced by Jaguar. A great opportunity to acquire one of the most significant supercars of their era.
