Rare TWR Sport R Package
Subject of rolling restoration
New interior, suspension, paint
Extensive documentation file
This 1988 Jaguar XJ-SC has been the subject of a rolling restoration from its enthusiast owner of 10 years. The car is distinguished by a full Tom Walkinshaw Racing "Sport R" package, which features unique bodywork, sport suspension, and higher V12 engine output. Having received fresh mechanicals, new suspension, new paint, a new interior and more, extensive service history and all receipts are included in a large binder. The seller is a longtime Jaguar owner and will use sale funds on a 1964 Jaguar MkII project he is building for his wife.
The seller notes that although the TWR package was never officially offered on the XJ-SC, he believes this car was either a special order or dealer conversion. The TWR cars were built alongside XJ-SCs at the Tickford plant, though some kits were sent out to the field for dealer installation. Several attempts to confirm the build have gone unanswered by Jaguar, and the Miami dealer who sold the car new does not have old records available. The restoration was fully photo documented and the seller is confident that all panels are original, saying it was evident that the underside of the panels as well as the top coat were done at the same time and had been married together from new.
The interior was completely redone and looks very fresh. Triple vat dyed Italian leather seats were carefully chosen, as was custom African Babinga hard wood veneer and a brand new dashboard. Further work included a new headliner, full interior trim, Hartzel roof cover. and new seals all around. A Nardi wood steering wheel doesn't work on many '80s interiors but looks right here.
The 5.3L Jaguar V12 is said to be very strong following a full tune up including plugs, wires, fluids and filters. Injectors and engine plumbing were tended to including all new fuel injection seals, and a new stainless steel exhaust was installed. The transmission shifts smoothly after a service and fluid change, and brakes have all new rotors, calipers, pads, and lines. Thorough suspension work has the car handling well and included new front and rear shocks and performance springs, new tie rod ends, drag links, rack and pinion boots, and new sway bar bushings. Many parts were sourced from XKs Unlimited and all receipts are included in a large binder along with comprehensive service history and a clean Carfax report.

Very Rare, very Sexy, Very Special! Like new condition inside and out. Excellent history with superb "Car Fax", Heritage report, and 9 year build report with photos and receipts.
The 5.3 V12 equipped XJ-SC was a limited edition (2 year production run) hand built model. This car is EXTRA special as it was built with the complete Factory "TWR" (Tom Walkinshaw Racing) "Sport R" package. According to Jaguar history the "TWR Sport R" package was never offered on the "XJ-SC" model, though the same "Specialty" shop was used to produce both cars. How ever it was created this beautiful sexy machine is certainly one of the ONLY "XJR-SC's" in existence!
With new paint, leather upholstery, Rare African "Bubinga" Wood through out, fresh mechanical s, and 9+ years of loving restoration, this very special car is ready to take its place proudly in any collection or garage.
This is a truly lovely car. With an excellent "Car Fax" report, a Jaguar Factory Heritage report, and full documentation of the very detailed 9+ year Refreshment of every system both inside and out. From Rare African "Bubinga" hardwood veneers, to supple Italian triple tanned and dyed pearl leather interior, a Special "Nardi" hard wood steering wheel and fully detailed Catalyzed Black enamel paint. The car shows and drives much better than new.
