From 1982 onwards, the XJ-S was successfully entered by the Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR for short) team in the European Touring Car Championship and won the championship title in 1984
The TWR Jaguar XJ-S of Tom Walkinshaw and Hans Heyer, Spa Francorchamps, 1984.
An honor that had always eluded its predecessors, the XK and E-Type. TWR offered a quite distinctive spoiler replacement for the XJ-S since 1984. Using this accessory, the production model XJR-S was created in England for the 1989 model year, which was technically identical to the XJ-S V12. The launch of this model was celebrated with a special Le Mans limited to 50 units (TWR had won there shortly before with the Jaguar XJR-9). Aerodynamic kits continued to be available for production cars and many derivatives were created by third party companies during this period.
In 1991, the visual changes of the facelift were adopted for the production models and at the same time a 6.0-liter V12 developed by TWR was introduced. This engine was not identical to the 6.0-liter V12 used by Jaguar from 1993, which had a different cylinder head. The German version of the XJR-S produced 243 kW (330 hp), reached a top speed of 254 km/h (155 mph) and had a three-speed automatic transmission. It remained in the program until spring 1993.
This Jaguar XJR-S V12 6.0 was delivered new by Jaguar Andorra in June 1991. The first Owner drove it irregularly until 2019 when he sold the Car to the current Owner. The first owner kept the car in excellent condition, driving only 35.800 km. The car is in original condition and was never restored. Nevertheless, all the maintenance required by the service book was done accordingly, which is completely sealed.
The car has now fitted 17″ custom wheels Lister style.
Included in the sale are the original 16″ Speedline wheels as well.
The Jaguar only has 42000km on the Tach and is in exceptional condition.
