Racecar-driver Justin Law dives into detail the very rare XJ220 supercar project and it's storied history, passing hands from Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) and Jaguar to him and his father Don, including the designs, tooling and even the infamous XJ220-powered Transit Van.
In the late 1980s, in partnership with TWR, Jaguar set out to create the fastest car in the world, with a goal of 220mph. Plagued by an economic recession and promises of a v12 engine that didn't deliver, the project ended up stale.
10 Years after the last car was completed, Jaguar's obligation to supply parts was up and the entire project was sold off, including the development materials, tooling, designs, prototypes, test mules, etc.
Don Law Racing, who had been racing the cars with Justin at the wheel was in a position to purchase the project and has been one of the very few places still servicing XJ220s in the world ever since.
Many thanks to everyone who helped complete this film! Including Owner Phil McGovern and @MrJWW who drove the car for us while filming - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK_zuVq6ZpSRMjsZ5JRPx5g
