Jaguar XK180 Concept Evocation

Description

In 1999 Jaguar presented a new concept car at the Paris Motor Show to commemorate their 50th anniversary. It was designed to be a modern homage to the iconic styling of their C and D Type racers, with modern running gear and a futuristic interior. That concept car was based on the Jaguar XKR with a 4.0 litre supercharged V8 engine producing 450bhp. The car had a 5 speed automatic gearbox transferring all the power to the rear wheels, giving an impressive 0-100km/ph time of 4.5 seconds. As a concept car, it is understood that Jaguar only made two examples of the car.

The car on offer here today was developed in 2015 to be a close replica of that concept car from 1999. Based on a 1985 Jaguar XJS-C chassis, this X180 Evocation has been meticulously engineered by Fokkens in the Netherlands to have all the presence of the original car.

Underneath the bonnet is the 3.6 litre engine with 5 speed manual transmission from the donor car, developing a healthy 230bhp. It is reported to have only 500km on the odometer and is presented in excellent condition throughout. The build cost for this car is quoted as being c. €120,000, so with this Evocation we have a great value car which would turn many heads at any event. A truly unique Jaguar and a must for any collector.
