Jaguar Trademarks XJ13 Nameplate, Is A Continuation Icon On Its Way?

Jaguar Land Rover filed a trademark for the XJ13 name this week, leading to suggestions that it Heritage division could be working on a new continuation model.

Back in the mid-1960’s, Jaguar intended on produce 26 examples of the XJ13 racing car in order to receive homologation for the Le Mans 24 Hours. It was powered by a 5.0-liter V12 delivering 502 HP, capable of sending it to 161 mph (259 km/h).

However, only one experimental prototype was ever produced and, in 1971, it was wrecked in a high-speed crash during filming of promotional content.

While a Jaguar spokesperson told Autocar that they are not planning to recreate the XJ13, this could merely be denying to divulge the brand’s future plans just yet.

Jag’s Heritage division is currently reproducing nine units of the Jaguar XKSS, a model originally built in 1957. Prior to the that, six units of the iconic Lightweight E-Type were manufactured, each selling for well over $1 million.

If you build it, they will come. With open wallets. Faster than you can say “XJ13”. And that, lads, is very good business.
