A huge win for the Jaguar team at Le Mans in 1988 prompted the company to produce a road going special edition TWR version of the XJS. TWR then made a believed 30 or so TWR XJ12 Sedans which were all for the European market. Manufactured on October 1st, 1986 and distributed through Jaguar Deutschland, Frankfurt Germany, this 1987 example was purchased new by pro golfer John Woodhall who then imported the car into the states.
It starts right up and free from any smoking. The engine pulls beautifully through all of the gears with outstanding smooth power. A full service has just been performed including new plugs and wires, fluids, filters, a new transmission mount and a new power steering hose.
Draped in Nimbus White over Biscuit leather and having covered a mere 41,120 miles from new, this TWR Sport XJ12 is highly original and an incredibly rare find. Tom Walkinshaw teamed up with Jaguar in the early 1980’s and modified an XJS which took a 1st place victory in the European Touring Car Championship in 1984. A huge win for the Jaguar team at Le Mans in 1988 prompted the company to produce a road going special edition TWR version of the XJS.
