If yes, you are in luck, because a 1994 Jaguar XJ220 previously owned by Brunei Royal Family is now up for grabs.
To be auctioned at Silverstone Auctions’ sale at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show on the 15th of November, at the NEC, Birmingham, where you will also find this fantastic Mercedes 280SE for sale, this ’94 Jaguar XJ220 is a pristine example that has travelled only 1,412 miles in the eight years it spent at the royal garage.
The car is chassis no 220693 was hand built by TWR Jaguar in Oxford in 1991. It was reimported back to the UK by a champagne dealer in September 2002, and then it was purchased by the current owner who wants to auction it off for between £200,000 and £220,000.
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.
