A rare Jaguar worth up to £220,000 will be auctioned off at the NEC classic motor show later this week.

The Jaguar, an XJ220, was one of only 281 built and was bought by the Royal Family of Brunei in 1994. Since then, it has changed hands multiple times but has only covered around 6,000 miles. The XJ220 was the fastest car in the world for two whole years when it was brought out in 1992.

The car is amongst over 120 other classic cars and vehicles going up for auction through Silverstone Auctions during the 14th-16th weekend this November at the NEC.
Other appearances at the Classic Motor Show include Porsche GB, who are showcasing their 16-strong display of fully restored Turbo and Targa models.

As part of the Classic Restoration Competition, Porsche centres pit against each other to restore iconic Porsches from across the range. This year's chosen models celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Porsche Turbo.

Stratstone's very own Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield, who won the competition in 2013, are entering again this year in a bid to retain their title with a classic 1991 944 Turbo. Stratstone Porsche Centre Bolton have also entered this year with a 1982 924 Turbo.

Other attractions at the event include extremely valuable and rare cars such as the Ferrari 250GT SWB, and the Jaguar 'Car Zero' - a lightweight E-type, one of six being produced to honour the original lightweight 1963 series where six production cars were missed off.

Alongside launching their new Heritage Driving Experience at the Classic Motor Show, Jaguar Heritage will also be showcasing the classic Le Mans-winning 1956 D-Type, and revealing their '57 merchandise collection for sale.

For film fanatics, an Aston Martin DB5 from James Bond, Steve McQueen's Ford Mustang from Bullitt and a DeLorean from Back to the Future will also be parked on the red carpet - just one small part of a weekend with 1,700 cars on show.

At the same time, the Classic Motorbike Show is also on display, showcasing around 300 classic motorcycles including Hondas, Triumphs and Harley Davidsons. There's even a gravity-defying Wall of Death.
