Up to speed on Jaguar’s fastest

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

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.
