In the annals of automotive history, there are those machines that, for one reason or another, don't quite get the limelight they deserve. Enter the Jaguar XJ220. A car that, in its time, was somewhat overshadowed by its contemporaries, but one that deserves a standing ovation.

Let's dive into the heart of the beast: a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6. Now, some purists might've scoffed at the idea of a V6 powering Jaguar's flagship supercar, especially when the initial concept promised a V12. But oh, how they were wrong. This engine, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, was nothing short of a revelation. It sang a high-pitched symphony, delivering power in a way that was both brutal and balletic.

The XJ220 in question, finished in a tantalising shade of Spa Silver, has a history that's as rich as its performance.

Driving the XJ220 is an experience that's hard to put into words. It's a dance between man and machine, where every input is met with a response that's both immediate and intoxicating. All mixed in with a truly appalling interior with bits that look like they've come from a literal parts bin. Oh the 90s.

In a world where the F40s and the 959s often steal the headlines, the XJ220 stands as a testament to Jaguar's engineering prowess and a reminder that sometimes, the most underrated cars are the most fun to drive. So, if you've got the means and the passion, this is one feline that's worth taming.
