This Jaguar XJ220 Just Broke an All-Time Record with a $625,000 Sale Price

Just a few weeks ago, Bonhams held its annual auction sale at the Goodwood Revival in West Sussex, England. As is always the case, the event attracted any number of illustrious exotics, with pre-war Bentleys, Concours-level Ferraris, and competition-proven Porsches all being part of the guest list. One of the auction’s most surprising stars, however, was the Jaguar pictured before you.

After all, it’s not often that an XJ220 even comes up for sale, let alone sets a record-breaking hammer price. Netting some £460,000 ($625,000), though, this 1993 example did just that, becoming the most expensive XJ220 ever sold at auction. But let’s face it: the thing is mint (not to mention incredibly rare), one of fewer than 300 examples in total and rolling with only around 400 miles on the odometer. From tip to tail, then, it’s basically factory fresh, kept in a dehumidified storage container, and obsessively maintained over the course of its lifetime. As such, the Monza Red paint appears practically new, whilst the Sand leather interior is of an equally showroom-like quality. Never registered for road-going use since production, it’s made only more desirable by the some £35,000 ($50,000) invested into its mechanical restoration.

Of course, the unfortunate reality of this world record Jag is that it’s no longer being offered for sale. That said, you can still lust over the auction listing currently up on Bonhams’ website. And who’s to say you can’t keep your eyes open for the next big-ticket Jag?
