Ex-Brunei Royal Family Jaguar XJ220 Heading to Auction

On November 15th, a rare 1994 Jaguar XJ220 once owned by the Royal Family of Brunei will cross the auction block at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show courtesy of Silverstone Auctions.

This particular XJ220 is chassis #220693 and was hand-built in Oxford in 1991. The British supercar was then shipped to the Royal Family of Brunei where it was added to their impressive collection. It remained there until 2002 with just 1412 miles on the clock before returning to the U.K in September of that year.

Now the mileage of this Jaguar XJ220 sits at 6000 and it is supported by MoT certificates from back in 2002. It recently had some work done on it by specialists Don Law Racing of Staffordshire and is expected to sell for between 200,000 and 220,000 pounds.

Discussing the car, managing director of Silverstone Auctions Nick Whale said, “These incredibly rare cars are one of our favourite supercars of all time. This is a fantastic example with a great history and very low mileage. It’s such a stunning design that still looks good nearly 25 years on.”

As a reminder, a mere 281 examples of the XJ220 reached customers. At the time of its launch, it was the world’s fastest production car with a 342 km/h verified top speed.
