TWR unveils limited edition Supercat

30th April 2024

“After more than two years of extensive design, engineering and development work, we are proud to unveil the design of TWR’s debut product. The outcome is a true drivers’ Super-GT built from the foundations of the iconic Jaguar XJS and appropriately named the Supercat." Fergus Walkinshaw, Director and Founder, TWR.

The order book for TWR’s debut limited production performance car is now open. This coincides with the unveiling of the exterior design ahead of a full dynamic debut in Summer 2024.

The TWR Supercat is a supercharged V12 powered Super-GT boasting more than 600 BHP and built from the legendary Jaguar XJS platform. It is the first of a new generation of cars from one of the most storied and celebrated names in motorsport and performance cars.

It is fitting that TWR has chosen a Jaguar as the first chapter in its contemporary history. Indeed, TWR has a long winning association with Jaguar and the XJS through victories in the most demanding motorsports environments in the world including Spa and Bathurst. The Supercat will be strictly limited to 88 individual builds a number chosen to celebrate the 1988 Le Mans win in the TWR Jaguar XJR-9.

In prioritising bold and contemporary design and delivering a truly involving driving experience, the car, makes a clear statement on the fundamentals that will underpin all future TWR projects that will enter production.

Indeed, TWR’s performance and motorsport DNA are evidenced in every element of the car. The selection of a manual transmission, weight-saving materials and an exhaustive testing, development and tuning programme all speak to the company’s commitment to delivering visceral and dynamic driving experiences for those who desire a truly connected and analogue driving experience.

In realising this first, landmark product, TWR has drawn inspiration from previous masterpieces across the history of the great name, stemming from Tom Walkinshaw’s work with touring cars, Le Mans monsters like the XJR-9, XJR-15 and even the XJ220 supercar.

Order books officially open today 30th April. Clients wishing to join those who have already committed to reservations following the announcement of the revival of TWR can secure their build slot with a £10,000 refundable deposit. Production will be strictly limited with first deliveries to take place in the fourth quarter of 2024.

As individual builds, all TWR clients will be afforded a full scope for personalisation. Therefore pricing will vary depending on individual specifications but will start at an indicative price of £225,000 excluding local taxes.
