Jaguar XJ220
Jaguar tries to join the Supercar Club with a promising '220mph' member, but delivery was slow in every sense. Developed as a collaboration with racing partners Tom Walkinshaw Racing, the XJ220 was a part-time project rather than mainstream. However Jim Randle always saw it as a 200mph supercar to stand against the Porsche 959 and Ferrari F40. The concept car was revealed at the 1988 British Motor Show, powered by a 6.2litre V12 engine, Ferguson Four Wheel drive made it handle and Keith Helfet designed the body. When the production version was rolled out in 1991 it was reduced to 6-cylinders and 2-wheel drive. Buyers were reluctant to accept the changes, and the 281 XJ220 took 3 years to sell.

Jaguar XJ220. Intended to be a 4WD sports car powered by a V12 engine, the production version ended up with a version of the 3.5-litre V6 engine from the Metro 6R4 Rally Car developed by Tom Walkinshaw. Although some buyers were disappointed in not having the V12, in fact the V6 was more powerful at 542bhp and the smaller engine enable better handling; this engine also served in the XJR-10, XJR-11 cars.

Jaguar XJ220. Jaguar's Jim Randle created the chassis and Keith Helfet designed the bodywork for the 1988 British Motor Show car. However, by the time the car was launched for production in 1992 it had lost the scissor doors, was shortened to save weight, and had the $WD and V12 engine deleted.
