Jaguar XJ13

Production: 03/1966

Production Type: For Competitions

Produced: 1

The Jaguar XJ13 was a prototype racing car designed to compete at Le Mans in the mid 1960s, but It never raced, and only one was produced. The car has not been officially valued, but a £7 million bid for it was declined by the owners in 1996. It was more than 3 times the price of a Ferrari 250 GTO at the time. On 21 January 1971, the XJ13 got into an accident, the resultant crash heavily damaged and nearly destroyed the car. The wreck of the car was put back into storage and some years later the car was rebuilt, to a specification similar to the original, using some of the body jigs made for its original construction.
