Tom Wilkenshaw Racing Kit: 1990 Jaguar XJS

I haven’t made up my mind about this next car…so I’m going to post it and let you guys tell me if it is right on the money or a bridge too far.  Anyway, the background behind this car is that back in the 80s the management at Jaguar didn’t want to spend the money to go racing, but a fellow by the name of Tom Wilkenshaw ran a privateer entry into ETCC (European Touring Car Championship) Group A (that’s the big boys) and it was a success.  Watch some on-track action here.  Regardless, the seller tells us that Jaguar sold some 250 examples of the TWR racing body-kits and only 50 remain…various websites both confirm and refute this suggestion…and to be honest…I dunno. Find this 1990 Jaguar XJS offered for $10,500 in South Florida via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Very Rare 1990 Jaguar XJS V12 with Factory Tom Wilkenshaw Racing (TWR) Body Package and rear spoiler. Less than 250 cars in the US had this and fewer than 50 survive today. 2 owner car that was stored for years after owner passed away. only 56K Miles. Car is completely original and is in great condition. Also very rare are the factory quad tip mufflers which are normally only seen on the Ultra Rare XJRS coupes. Also equipped with factory BBS wheels. New battery and tires were installed after it was taken out of storage. 

All new belts and cooling hoses were installed along with new thermostats, caps, coolant, fan and fan clutch. Fuel tank was drained and flushed; new fuel and air filters were installed along with new throttle linkage bushings. Fresh oil and filter change with synthetic. The body has only been washed but not detailed and it still shines nicely. Interior is near flawless and one of the cleanest I have ever seen. All manuals included as well as 2 sets of keys. Also has Original Jaguar Lambs wool seat covers. These simply do not exist anymore. Many new and spare parts included in sale. Forced to sell but great chance for someone to get a very unique car. Serious inquiries only please. No joy rides
