TWR Supercat: the Jaguar XJS restomod that you didn't expect

Although Jaguar is currently focused mainly on SUVs and electrified vehicles (like most manufacturers), its tradition in sports cars It is very extensive. Also in stately GTs that made many sigh as they passed by. An example is the Jaguar TWR Supercata tribute in a modern key that wants to be a reinterpretation of the coveted feline.

The name already refers to the nickname that was given to the XJS at the time and it is a complete design, engineering and development work by this British competition team, which has lasted for two years. This example represents the first chapter of his new story, which wants to be focused on limited production vehicles. They were already related in the past with the TWR Jaguar XJR-9 that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1988. In their honor, only 88 units will be made of the Supercat, which is already accepting reservations and will make its dynamic debut this summer.

Athough it does not seems, they used the original platform of the Jaguar XJS and also tried to maintain their philosophy. The design has always been made taking into account the best aerodynamic efficiency, hence it has marked shapes and widened body panels. Modern optics stand out or semi-faired wheels between forms that are much more extreme than those of the model from which it is inspired. All panels are made of carbon fiber to lighten the assembly and improve the resistance of the Supercat.

On the other hand, they wanted to maintain the twelve-cylinder essence of the XJS, although TWR has opted for a Supercharged V12 that will exceed 600 HP of power. The features are yet to be finalized, but we can expect great things. And, as we said, there will only be 88 examples of the TWR Supercat and deliveries will begin at the end of the year. Booking requires a deposit of £10,000, which will be deducted from the final price of 225,000 pounds (262,646 euros in exchange) that this peculiar model costs.
