At one time, this was the fastest vehicle in the world, but those days are behind the Jaguar XJ220. Despite it losing the crown, the supercar can still remain one of the coolest machines ever to be built and that point was driven home at the SEMA motor show.
The matte-grayJaguar is actually for sale, as the previous owner decided to trade up, if that was possible. As you know, the XJ220 features a 500+ horsepower twin-turbo V6, but reports indicated that the owner has tuned and modified it to well over 700 horsepower.
That color is a bit of oddity, as it’s a unique color and could hamper the resale value of the vehicle. Perhaps a better way to go would have been to use Meguiar’s paint wraps that can come off, unlike this which is now permanent.
The car was worked on and brought to the show by Specialty Car Craft, a company that has worked on many different exotic vehicles of the years. At the SEMA show, the company had a Rolls-Royce Phantom , a matte-green Lamborghini Murcielago and a matte-orangeLotus Exige on display.
You can keep your tuned Honda CR-Zs , we’ll have one of these.
