Ouch!!!

Yes the 220 was designed for the v12 but they changed the rules and they stuck a V6 twin turbo in it. Still goes like stink and it is far more stable at speed than say a Mclaren.

If I had 100,000 to waste sod a Ferrari it's the XJ220 I would go for - they still look amazing!!!

Mr. Jag also said that when Jaguar announced that it would be having a V6 rather than a V12, many that had put a 50k deposit down on them backed out and waved good buy to their 50k rather than take delivery. Jag tried to sue but backed down.
