Up to speed on Jaguar’s fastest
WRITING from Anorak Café, reader John Ray questioned if the 186mph XKR-S at Geneva was really Jaguar’s fastest production car.
What about the 200mph-plus XJ220, he asked. Jaguar actually describes the XKR-S as its “most potent series production car ever” and the “quickest Jaguar ever”, citing 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. Both engines gave 542bhp.
The Le Mans-derived XJ220 (1989-1992) was quoted at 0-60 in four seconds. It cost £290,000 and only 280 were made as demand waned.
