This gorgeous Jaguar is probably the best Jag ever produced. It was designed by a group of Jaguar engineers who secretly got together on Saturdays with the goal to build the fastest car in the world. When Jaguar found out about it, they were so impressed they put it in the 1988 Birmingham auto show. Initial reaction was astounding for the car as 1,300 people lined up to buy. Unfortunately only 271 were built as economic conditions changed and many of those 1,300 could no longer afford it. Originally intended to be powered by a V12, Jaguar opted for a twin-turbo charged V6 which allowed a lower weight and smaller size. The 220 part of its name showed Jaguar's intent to get the car up to 220 MPH. They fell short by 7 MPH but I doubt the few lucky owners mind that much.
