This Classic British Supercar Is Worth Every Penny Of Its $490K Price Tag


Automakers don’t make supercars like this anymore.

Modern supercars are breathtakingly fast, gorgeous andextremely capable on and off the track. But the majority of supercars lack the feel and engagement of older supercars. Between 1992 and 1994, Jaguar createdthe incredible XJ220 and shocked the world. The XJ220 was the fastestproduction vehicle in the world with a top speed of 213.48 mph before the McLarenF1 was introduced in 1993. In addition to having the highest top speed of anyother vehicle, the XJ220 also held the record for the fastest production car tolap the Nurburgring.

To blast past other supercars, the XJ220 featured a3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 that put out 542 hp and was the first V6 in Jaguar’shistory. With a price tag of approximately $580K in 1989, the XJ220 wasn’texactly cheap, but Tom Harley Jnr has a pristine example of the supercar forsale. The XJ220 on saleonly has 6,027 miles on it and is one of 69 supercars in right-hand drive. Withonly three previous owners, the XJ220 in question has lived an extremelysheltered life and is utterly stunning. The price for this incredible beast isat a whopping $490K, but we think it’s well worth it.
