First production version is offered as a prize in a NSPCC competition
20 October 2009

Jaguar is putting the first production XJ up for auction to try and raise £1million for the NSPCC.

The Jaguar Prize Competition will cost £125 per entry, with no limit to the amount of entries allowed per person. The money raised will go towards the NSPCC’s helplines, including ChildLine.

Geoff Cousins, managing director of Jaguar UK said: “To help give more children the support they need, Jaguar, a long-standing supporter of the NSPCC, is giving away the very first customer ready car to be produced.

“This is a unique chance to own the first XJ, help raise funds for the Child's Voice appeal – and ensure even more calls are answered."

The competition runs to 25 November, with the winner being announced on 1 December. To enter, visit
