1993 Jaguar XJ220

Published By

As one of the most iconic and legendary exotic sports cars of all time, the 1993 Jaguar XJ220 is still turning heads. Jaguar only made a total of 282 XJ220 cars and this is one of them.

Most enthusiasts have never even seen one in person or up close. That is how rare this car truly is. Yet, every kid or grown-up kid from the early ‘90s wanted one. Newsflash, they still want to get their hands on an XJ220.

If you are one of those who had a poster or die-cast model of a Jaguar XJ220, you already know how special this car is. Well, now is your chance to add a real version to your collection thanks to RM Sotheby’s.

That’s right, this particular ‘93 XJ220 is available for sale to the highest bidder. Should you emerge with the top bid, it will grant you keys to a Jaguar XJ220 with all of its twin-turbo glory.

The engine sits behind the driver and passenger under a beautiful glass canopy displaying the magnificent twin-turbo 3.5L V6 engine. This powerful cat roars to the tune of 542 horsepower at a screaming 7,200 rpm. It also brings 472 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels.

In case you are wondering, that translates to a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of only 3.7 seconds. The XJ220 got its name from its projected top speed of 220 mph. Although, that may require some additional tuning. Most factory outfitted examples can reach a speed of just over 210 mph.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. This puts you completely in control of one of the fastest felines around. From purgle to roar, this Jaguar makes everything else look like a kitty. That’s why it held the title of the world’s fastest production car during its active years.

Best of all, this particular car is literally a showroom quality example. This is as pristine as an XJ220 gets, displaying only a handful of miles over 700 on the odometer. It also comes with an impeccable grading score of 9.995 from the Jaguar Club of Florida Concours d’Elegance. 

Make no mistake about it, the 1993 Jaguar XJ220 is a true supercar in its purest form. It was difficult to acquire one in 1993 but it is even more challenging to land one now. Word of warning to any prospective buyers, this cat does not like to live in a cage. You will want to unleash it at some point, at your own risk.
