The guys from Tax The Rich are back, this time with a video of a Jaguar XJ220 taken for a joyride on a farm. Rather than drive along a scenic road or head to a track for some high-speed action, the mysterious driver of this Jaguar XJ220 heads to a farm and at one point drives at speed through a field of trees.
At this point you must be wondering why. It’s because Tax The Rich is a Youtube group whose mission is to bring you footage of supercars being used in the most unlikely manner. Previously, they’ve brought us video of a pair of Ferrari F50s in a game of tug of war, a Ferrari Enzo driven through the mud like a rally car, and a Rolls-Royce Phantom being flung through muddy grass fields.
Sit back and enjoy their latest effort.
Last year saw the Jaguar XJ220 turn 20, which is quite amazing considering the car still looks modern and its performance not far off the pace of the latest breed of supercars. Power came from a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 542 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque, and all of this was channeled to the rear wheels via a five-speed gearbox. The end result was a 0-60 mph time of less than four seconds, and an unofficial top speed of 220 mph--hence the name “XJ220”.
