Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Jaguar XJ220 is the fastest, most exciting and most expensive road-going Jaguar ever built, evolving from Jim Randle’s 1988 UK Motor Show dream concept with the sensuous shape. 350 limited edition cars were developed and produced from 1989 to 1994 by JaguarSport, the Jaguar/Tom Walkinshaw TWR joint venture. Going on sale for $415,000 with a $80,000 non-returnable deposit, it attracted celebrities, speculators and the mega wealthy and was oversold in just one day. This inside story is an historically accurate account of the project from the director himself. Featuring over 200 photographs, many previously unpublished, showing the concept and production cars in all stages of development, with glamour shots and historical photos of Jaguar sports and racing cars, this book is a must for Jaguar enthusiasts.
