In its day, the XJ220 was a true force to be reckoned with, achieving a top speed of 217 mph from its 540-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter TWR V-6 engine. Though the XJ220 concept had used a V-12 engine and all-wheel drive, the production car’s V-6 and rear-drive combination proved to be very dynamically capable, if a bit treacherous for the uninitiated.
Beyond its raw performance, however, the Jaguar XJ220’s futuristic, spaceship-like looks set it far apart from the crowd—even from the McLaren F1, which was its primary rival (and successor in the claim to the world’s fastest production car title).
