Confident possessor of the title of the fastest serial car Jaguar XJ220 will receive entirely new tires, capable of withstanding the strictest requirements. We remind that initially the original tires for the supercar Jaguar XJ220 were prepared by Bridgestone company experts. The task received by Bridgestone specialists was not easy. The car can accelerate to 354 kilometers per hour, and it is heavy enough, and the wheels dimensions are just R17.

Considering the fact that Jaguar had assembled not more than three hundred models of the XJ220, and not all of them “survived” until nowadays, the Bridgestone considered uneconomic further issue of special tires, and stopped the production. Supercars owners in turn were dissatisfied with the existing analogues of tires, and decided to take the situation under their control. In particular, Don Lowe, a recognized collector of Jaguar cars announced the start of new works of Bridgestone professionals on creation of original tires.
