The Jaguar XJ220 spearheaded Britain's entry into the world of supercars, previously dominated by Italian stylists and engineers. The showcar prototype caused a sensation when it appeared at the British Motor Show in 1988 creating a wave of public interest that led inevitably to the decision to go into production. The latest race-car technology was added to enhancing Jaguar's reputation for speed with style. And what speed! With over 500 bhp on tap, the XJ220 soon took its place as the world's fastest production road car. We tell the whole XJ220 story with exclusive footage, filmed in the factory, in the car and on the road together with historic archive material.
