At some point in mid ’80s, Jaguar boss Jim Randle came to the realization that the company had lost sight of its motorsports heritage. In fact, it was mostly just coasting along on warmed over ’70s models. So an idea was hatched to build a homologation special, something wild and daring to compete in Group B racing. That car was the XJ220, and when the first one finally rolled off the production line in 1992, it was the fastest production car in the world. A racing version soon followed, and it won its first race outright, going on to take the GT class win at Le Mans the same year.
