Known History

in 1966 Jaguar Motorcars built one example of the iconic XJ13, a car which was supposed to shatter records and bring Jaguar back as one of the most serious contenders in Sportscar Racing. Unfortunately this beautiful car did never pass the prototype stage and only example was built, which is still to find in the Jaguar works museum in Coventry, UK.

 

Numerous companies have tried to create a copy of this timeless beauty. None of them came even close to the original. The only exception are the seven cars Tempero built with the kind assistance of the factory. This very small production run was built based on original factory drawing. An ll aluminum monocoque was used, just as with the original. The instruments are identical to the original instruments used in the XJ13, even the windshield was created from the original mold used for the Jaguar XJ13.

 

The engine is a correct 5.3 Liter V12 Jaguar engine, but despite the 4-cam racing version used by the factory for their prototype Tempero used the standard 2-cam V12 Jaguar engine. This very car, chassis number 001, is one of only seven built and was for a long time on display at the well known Blackhawk Museum in Danville, CA. The car car is street registered and good for top speeds of up to 200mph. An absolute delight to drive on the road or even more so, on the track in the hands of a skilled driver. This car is also welcome at any car show and a total crowd pleaser wherever you go.
