Upon its release in 1992, the XJ220 was the fastest production car on the planet, hitting almost 348 kilometres per hour. The two main contributors to this achievement were the sleek, aerodynamic body, and the twin turbo powerhouse that lay neatly between the cabin and the rear axle.
However, despite its impressive performance, the XJ220 resulted in a sales failure, given that the initial promise to waitlisted clients was an all-wheel-drive, V12 flagship. Many orders were cancelled, and after its speed record was eclipsed by the McLaren F1, the XJ220 was quickly forgotten as a temperamental, pedigreed relic. Over the years, and handful of people —most notably, XJ220 guru Don Law—, have maintained a stable stock of spare parts, and developed upgrades for enhanced reliability and drivability.
This particular XJ220 was delivered new to France and has covered less than 4,000 kilometres from new. Still showing its original paint and interior, this car has been carefully preserved for display, and been consistently maintained with Don Law spares to drive and perform as it should.
