Chassis no. SAJJEAEX8AX220686; Engine no. 6A10113SB. Spa Silver over Smoke Grey leather. 3498/542hp, 5-speed, Pirelli P Zero tires, power windows, air conditioning, Alpine cassette stereo.

Evaluation: Showing just 6837 km, which are represented as actual. Major service in 2018, including fuel bladder replacement. Other than very minor scuffs on the edges of the rims and a small scratch on the right rear, there isn’t any wear to speak of.

Bottom Line: Bidding at RM and elsewhere in Monterey this year was exuberant to say the least, but it was arguably even more frenzied at RM’s Elkhart Collection sale last year, where this XJ220 sold for $483,500 and showed 15 fewer km on the odometer. Both are strong numbers for a well-kept XJ220 however. It previously sold for $206,700 in Auburn back in 2003 and then for just $154,000 at RM Arizona in 2009, but in the years since collectors have started to recognize the XJ220’s level of sophistication and its evolution from TWR’s successful racing endeavors.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
