Getting the band back together is a common ruse for ageing rock stars, but Bridgestone has applied the same thinking to an elderly supercar. And the tyre firm has teamed up with renowned Jaguar XJ220 specialist Don Law to develop a new tyre for the British machine.
As well as Law, the team creating the new rubber for the XJ220 includes the original chief development engineer, test driver and chassis #004 that acted as the pre-production mule. The aim is to offer owners a direct replacement tyre for the ones fitted at the factory but with modern technology incorporated.
Good news for #XJ220 owners. #Bridgestone
