So much has been written about the XJ220 in the 22 years since it started production back in 1992. Only 281 examples of this supercar were ever produced, much less than its direct rival the Ferrari F40.

The brain child of the Jaguar Saturday club including members of the racing department TWR, the XJ220 promised a V12 engine and 4 wheel drive when it first surfaced in 1988, prompting 1500 deposits. As the car was developed and the UKs economy crashed into darkness the project progressed with the TWR V64V which was also found in the XJR-10 and XJR-11 and the Group B 6R4. Producing 540 BHP but weighing in at only 1390kg the XJ220 is still one of the quickest cars on the road today, with the outright pace to out drag a Pagani Zonda and many other more modern supercars.
