Happy Birthday, Jaguar XJ220

Once the world’s fastest production car, Jaguar’s extraordinary XJ220 will celebrate its 25th birthday on Saturday at the Silverstone Classic. Record numbers will be mustering for an track parade led by three of the TWR JaguarSport racing XJ220Cs that competed in the Le Mans 24 Hours – one of these is coming all the way from Japan to be part of the party.

Among those taking part in the parade are two of the key figures behind the car: Jim Randle and Keith Helfet. As Jaguar engineering director, Randle was the inspiration behind the original concept car, while Helfet was the brains behind the XJ220’s styling.
