Automakers don’t make supercars like this anymore.
Modern supercars are breathtakingly fast, gorgeous and extremely capable on and off the track. But the majority of supercars lack the feel and engagement of older supercars. Between 1992 and 1994, Jaguar created the incredible XJ220 and shocked the world. The XJ220 was the fastest production vehicle in the world with a top speed of 213.48 mph before the McLaren F1 was introduced in 1993. In addition to having the highest top speed of any other vehicle, the XJ220 also held the record for the fastest production car to lap the Nurburgring.
To blast past other supercars, the XJ220 featured a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 that put out 542 hp and was the first V6 in Jaguar’s history. With a price tag of approximately $580K in 1989, the XJ220 wasn’t exactly cheap, but Tom Harley Jnr has a pristine example of the supercar for sale. The XJ220 on sale only has 6,027 miles on it and is one of 69 supercars in right-hand drive. With only three previous owners, the XJ220 in question has lived an extremely sheltered life and is utterly stunning. The price for this incredible beast is at a whopping $490K, but we think it’s well worth it.
