Jaguar XJ220 - The Official Story
Documentary made about the superb super-car, the Jaguar XJ220.
It features an interview with the car's "father", (former) Jaguar's chief
engineer Jim Randle, as well as the car's body stylist, Keith Helfet.
Also factory footage of making the manufacturing the car, as well as a full
7+ mins. track run footage (complete with cool 80's-like music).
The documentary seems to have been made between 1992 and 1994, as the car
is referred to as the fastest production car in the world, something that
was true until 1994 when the McLaren F1 came along.
This is from a vhs tape, so quality of transfer is not perfect.
"Jaguar XJ220 - The Official Story
-Shot in-car, on the road, trackside and from the air!
-This is the official record of the world's fastest production car!
-XJ220 is the car against which any future supercar must be measured.
This fascinating program gives the inside story of the modern legend:
XJ220. Jaguar's own archives take you behind closed doors to tell the tale
of this 220 mph car's build and development.
Includes unique footage of body and engine manufacture at the Abbey Panels,
TWR and JaguarSport workshops, an exclusive guie to production in the
company of Tom Wilkinshaw and Jaguar's own test and development film, both
in-car and on the track.
(Special thanks to Derek Hedlund)"
White*Star production (Division of KULTUR).
Running Time: 60 Minutes.
SOLD 1993 Jaguar XJ220
Burgundy pearl w/Tan interior, 3.5 liter twin turbo V-6/549hp, 5-spd manual transaxle.
Jaguars were always known as the "gentleman's" sports car. There
"civilized" performance and classic beauty has always been a mainstay in
the automotive world. However, for one brief shining moment, Jaguar created
The idea for the XJ220 was created out of a collaboration of engineers
known as "The Saturday Club". This was an informal group of gear heads that
included Jaguar chief engineer Jim Randle. Out of these meetings the
concept for the XJ220 was born.
Originally intended to utilize a V-12 engine, it was decided that a turbo charged V-6 (a first for Jag) would be
better suited, as more hp could be obtained by using this unit than the
V-12. . . . More to come!
AC Cobra drag race: can an XCS Fusion outrun a Jaguar XKR-S?
Not all AC Cobra replicas are created equal. Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe
pitches a 550bhp XCS Fusion against a Jaguar XKR-S to find out just how
potent they can be.
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://smarturl.it/autocar
The XCS Fusion Cobra replica has been design by the team behind the Dax
Rush, and features the patented anti-roll system from the aforementioned
Caterham Seven clone. It also happens to feature a tubular spaceframe
chassis and switchable electrically assisted steering. Oh, and a Chevrolet
LS3 V8, which with the aid of a Supercharger, develops up to 639bhp. And the car
weighs 1080kg, resulting in a Bugatti Veyron-beating 590bhp per tonne.
It's quick, certainly, but can it beat the Jaguar XKR-S in a drag race?

XJ220 and XKR-S at Nurburgring
The legendary John Nielsen returns to the Nordschleife at the Nurburgring
to drive an XJ220 for the first time since he set a blistering lap of 7m
47s nearly 20 years ago in one of the first production cars - setting a
record that was to stand for 8 years from 1992 to 2000.
The XJ220 was kindly loaned by Don and Justin Law and was pursued round the
circuit by one of the latest Jaguar XKR-S models being driven by Chris
Harris of EVO magazine - who also provides the commentary. With both cars
producing around 550hp it was an interesting contest!
