The Jaguar XJ220 is the craziest 1990s supercar. Today I'm reviewing the Jaguar XJ220 to show you why it's so special and unique -- and why it was so crazy. I'm going to show you all around the XJ220, and then I'm going to take it out on the road and drive the Jaguar XJ220 supercar.

  • could you explain why when you pronounced the Jaguar name when detailing the rear logo you said it correctly but throughout the rest of the video you said Jagwar.

  • Alan Scott the TWR engine shop manager rang, could you come and see me A,S,A,P following morning on my way,i went through all the security checks finally in their board room Scott was there and Goeff Goddard from Cosworth. At the time they were building the Jaguars v12 upto 6ltrs for the TWR XJS , Scott asked me my thoughts on this engine for more power, i explained that on this engine it can be done by making new cam boxes,wider and covers to match and very high lift profiles this you cannot do with the present set up. Scott asked me what lift i said 20mm, Goddard just smiled . 12 months later again please come and see me. He asked me if i had time for a contract i said yes, i need a v12 for a super car . He told me he was testing 4 engines from jaguar and they were not good. I went to see them and it was obvious that they were good at the work done but the 4valve design was sadly incorrect. The max bhp was 320 course from 5 ltrs. They want at least 550bhp, we do it on the Silk cut block i confirmed. It was planned that the new engine would be used on a supercar at Jaguar and the TWR Xjs? The new 4valve heads were as they should be the only unique points were the cam bearings i included the bearings between the cylinders not the valves, there being more surface area and controll if the long camshafts started to whip or twist, the first pair of heads were cast by Cosworth castings and machined at Culham Centre in Abingdon. There machine guy and myself machine the pair working 24/7 for 4 days, i was knackered, then drive back up north, all this cos Walkinshaw was giving everyone hell for the new engine, the engine was built 6ltrs 710 bhp max running on the dyno to prove it ,at 6000rpm wide throttle failed after 6 house ,,BIG TIME. The engine was stripped and it was found a hole about 10mm dia in the no.4 inlet port. This was obviously core shift the head was cut open and the wall thickness in that area was thinner than1mm, Hell had arrived for Scott and me. The engine had some success in racing ,but the saga went to the Jaguar 220. The jaguar super car mentioned in my contract was for my engine. When all this happened, and the group C rules were changed the new engine was far to heavy and bulky ,Walkinshaw needed a new engine for the race cars, so he did a deal with the Leyland guys and bought the 6r4 engine modified it and that was the new race car, the v12 twelve was now out of racing but going into the 220 ,it was being fitted at Browns Lane and going great. But Walkinshaw again saw a treasure chest and convinced the jaguar people to fit the V6, it was a disaster the car now out of balance being designed for a much heavier engine and course being marketed and taking orders for a v12. On completion there came a class act litigation at the london courts i was the number one witness, the claiments won the case and the poor 220 was shelved a great engine and wonderful car ruined by arrogance. Thank you.

  • The interior is loaded with parts from the early 90s Ford of Europe parts bin: Dials, switches, gear lever, door handles; the list goes on. They key and the door mirrors too. Its 10% the same as my dad's Ford Granada Ghia 😆

  • "In the UK they don't really have hot & sunny days" 😆 Thanks Doug, we topped 98 deg F last summer and are well into the 80s already this year... Its just crap design by Jaguar back in the day. My Rover had a sun shade for the roof back in 87 and every car I've ever owned has since

  • Hey Doug, pls review this car; "Isdera Commendatore 112i", which was a subsidy of Mercedes Benz AMG. Oldest supercars of times. Late 1990s cars. This was featured in Need For Speed II. Pls make a review. A very special car.

  • If this car was imported from the UK , why is the wheel on the left ?

    susheel avvarususheel avvaru4 gün önce
  • I really wonder, would having such wheels means the brakes would not get as much air and hence heat up may be?

  • The (XJ-200) in the owner's manual is totally necessary maybe 30% of customers that call my shop have zero idea of what they drive. Think of that and let that sink in..a guy will call and say " I have a mustang and someone told me that my clutch is going out". And when he and his Chevy Camaro show up and it's automatic I just let the person stay oblivious.. you know all those car accidents on the roads? Yep it's those people.. another customer tick is THEY DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY LIVE 😠😠..I stopped dropping vehicles off because it's just a headache..

  • Jeez Doug. Your Doug scores are so irrelevant. Everything is built for a purpose. It wasn't meant to be a family cruiser. I bet if you reviewed an F1 car you would award it a low "Doug Score" because of practicality, (no doors so very hard to get into and out of and you need a servant to pass you the safety belts and no roof which means only good weather motoring) comfort (crazy firm ride and the seats are hard. There is limited leg room and no footrest. There is no armrest or drink holders. There is no satnav nor airconditioning... they don't even have air vents. There is no leather in a car costing so much. Not even valour seat covers and there is only one seat. Even the McLaren F1 had three. You also need to wear a helmet or set of goggles to stop bugs punching your eye balls in at 200 mph), value (you could buy 50 Rolls-Royce Phantoms for the same price which makes it crazy) and feeeatuuuuuures (apart from the steering wheel) but that doesn't mean an F1 car isn't what it is.... a machine to do what it is designed to do and that is go fast. Just like the XJ220. It was designed to be the fastest road car in the world and it was. I'm surprised you didn't mention it didn't have any drink holders or cellphone which would obviously be required as you surpassed 200 mph. "Doug Scores" are only relevant if you are comparing cars from the same era. You never took it on the track so how do you know the steering became too light? I'm sure JagWaah did a perfect job in that department. Apart from that I loved your review!

  • Hey Dooug. I have a shit brown Ford Pinto with a yellow plaid interior. It has an 8 track player in it. It crackles a bit but man do those Kraco speakers bump. The wood grain is falling off on the passenger door but duct tape will fix that. I did it on the other side. I put spray foam insulation all around the gas tank so it shouldn't explode if you get hit. Just let me know if your interested.
