Footnotes

  • Constructed in 1965/66, the original XJ13 sports prototype had been intended to spearhead Jaguar's return to Le Mans where the Coventry firm had triumphed on five occasions in the 1950s, but development was protracted and by the time it ran for the first time in March 1967, the car was already outclassed. The prototype was extensively tested that year at the MIRA proving ground, lapping at 161.6mph, an impressive achievement that earned an entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest speed recorded for a lap of an enclosed British circuit. The solitary XJ13 was then mothballed at the factory, re-emerging in 1971 to take part in a filming session at MIRA promoting the new Series III E-Type. Driven by Jaguar's legendary test driver Norman Dewis, the XJ13 crashed heavily, the result of a wheel collapsing. That Dewis was able to walk away unhurt was ample demonstration of the inherent strength of the monocoque chassis. The XJ13 was subsequently rebuilt and survives in Jaguar's collection.

    Constructed in October 1992, this Jaguar XJ13 replica carrying the registration '527 ATO' has a Proteus chassis numbered '002', indicating that it is the second one they ever manufactured. The car is powered by a fuel-injected 5.3-litre Jaguar V12 engine, which is coupled to an original and correct ZF-type transaxle. The body is of glassfibre and aluminium construction, while the car rolls on replica cast alloy peg-drive wheels  (8.5" front/11" rear) complete with three-ear spinners. The brakes are by Brembo.

    The car was purchased new by well-known Jaguar racer Mr Mike Cann of CWM Engineering Ltd, Scunthorpe. Mike proceeded to prepare the car to a higher standard using his engineering company's facilities, adding alloy panelling in the cockpit area. He then decided to prepare the car for competition, racing it during 1993, 1994 and 1998 at venues including Cadwell Park, Donington Park, and Oulton Park (photographs on file). The car raced at Donington in 1998 when Jaguar Cars celebrated the XK120 sports car's 50th anniversary, its competitor number being '13' of course.

    The XJ13 was purchased in the late 1990s by Nigel Webb, founder of the Mike Hawthorn Museum where it has been serviced and maintained ever since. While in his ownership the car has been driven to events and venues such as Classic Le Mans, Brands Hatch, and Silverstone, plus trips to a few pubs! Legendary Jaguar factory test and development engineer, the late Norman Dewis, once drove the XJ13 at Goodwood; his letter of thanks is on file together with many signed photographs of Norman with the car and driving it. This XJ13 replica has also featured Jaguar Driver magazine number '480'of July 2000 (copy on file). To date, this XJ13 replica has covered only 4,194 miles from new and is described by the private vendor as in generally very good condition and running well. A special jack and two spare hubs (one front, one rear) are included in the sale.
