AutoAlert : The Elusive Jaguar XJ220

Its existence is denied by Jaguar Officials but if this stunning piece of engineering work goes into production, the British Motor industry have every right to brag about their achievement. As with the Lotus Espirit mention in my previous blog, this model is set to go against the Audi R8. To keep weight to the minimum, aluminium & carbon-fiber is extensively used from the all-new chassis that the vehicle will sit on to sculpted body panels.

The heart of the vehicle will most likely be the pump-up version of the 503bhp,5.0-litre supercharged V8 found in the XFR. Sprint time from 0-60mph should take less than four seconds with all the horses put to work. The design is heavily influence by the XK coupe especially the oval shaped front grill while the flanks feeding cool air to the supercharge engine gives the body a muscular look. For those who like to indulge in the sinful amount Adrenalin rush without compromising on the environment can take comfort in the fact that Jaguar will be doing everything they can to reduce CO2 emissions and offering powerplant capable of running on biofuel-blended petrol.
