One of the Jaguar XJ220 will be auctioned

Jaguar created the Xj220 model and ever since, it was compared with the XKR-S in terms of dynamics. This is not all. The car, well, actually one of the only 6 ever built, will be auctioned at the RM Auctions event that will happen in Arizona at the end of this week. The special and interesting thing about these cars is that their body is made of carbon fiber mostly, even though these are cars of the 90s.
The XJ220 is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that is capable of developing "only" 680 horsepower. All the power is being sent to the wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. The strength of the car is also increased by the splitters and spoilers. The 680 horsepower is not really it. The car is actually capable of producing somewhere close to 700 horsepower because of a TWR custom titanium exhaust installed by the current owner and that cost around $ 20.000.
