The Jaguar XJ220 is the fastest, most exciting and most expensive road-going Jaguar ever built, evolving from Jim Randle’s 1988 UK Motor Show dream concept with the sensuous shape. 350 limited edition cars were developed and produced from 1989 to 1994 by JaguarSport, the Jaguar/Tom Walkinshaw TWR joint venture. Going on sale for $415,000 with a $80,000 non-returnable deposit, it attracted celebrities, speculators and the mega wealthy and was oversold in just one day. This inside story is an historically accurate account of the project from the director himself. Featuring over 200 photographs, many previously unpublished, showing the concept and production cars in all stages of development, with glamour shots and historical photos of Jaguar sports and racing cars, this book is a must for Jaguar enthusiasts.

About the Author:

Mike Moreton worked as a design/development engineer for Vauxhall in Luton before spending 23 years with Ford, where he was involved in engineering, product planning, marketing and motorsport. Mike has also worked for TWR/JaguarSport, where he was project manager for the Jaguar XJ220, and acted as operations director for Aston Martin before becoming Managing Director of KBD Design. 

Review:

"The 'inside story' tag is no idle boast, author Mike Moreton having been the XJ220 project manager at TWR/JaguarSport. His candid account gives an insight into the trials and tribulations of this controversial supercar. It is well written, packed with fine photos such as crash-test shots and, most intriguingly, all manner of original charts and documents." – Classic & Sports Car
"If anyone is well-placed to tell the inside story of this great car it's Mike Moreton, who was project manager for the XJ220 at TWR/JaguarSport from day one and saw the mission through to completion." – Classic Cars
"The 160 pages gave over 200 photographs and, refreshingly, many have never been seen before. A marvellous present for the post Chrismas blues." – Jaguar World Monthly "The meat of the book is in the way it gives a fascinating look – with interesting photos from inside the factory, engineering drawings and so forth – of all that was involved with recruiting staff, redesign, aerodynamic testing, working with outside suppliers, spec sheets, certification and crash-testing, and sales." – New Zealand Classic Car "This stunning 160-page hardcover is a Jag enthusiast's dream. A fascinating and historically accurate account of the iconic car from embryonic stages to ultimate marketing." – The Arch
