That's my favourite - or at least the best car I have ever owned (and yes it is me driving it). I should never have sold it...
1988 6.0l V12Jaguar XJR-S
After winning the 1984 European Touring Car Championship at the wheel of an XJ-S, Tom Walkinshaw of TWR was commissioned to give the road-going XJR a performance makeover. In 1988 the factory made an official model incorporating Walkinshaw's enhancements. His company JaguarSport (or TWR), was already producing body and suspension kits for the XJ-S which were available for separate order.
Each car left the TWR factory as individually built cars. Options such as the body kit, quick-shift gearbox, ventilated discs and four-pot brake calipers along with stiffer suspension, lowered ride height, re-calibrated power steering and a momo steering wheel were available.
Both a 5.3 liter and 6.0 liter engine were available in the car. Since the engines look almost identical, its hard to differentiate between the two. In either case a genuine TWR car is hard to come by, as in three years of production a little over 600 cars were manufactured.
And the rear view, which is all most people saw of it was pretty good as well..
