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.
