Jaguar XJ220S



As if the regular XJ220 wasn't scary enough...
The XJ220S was a limited run of an already limited run; just six of them exist, and their hazy grey hues allow them to blip on and off enemy radar at will. Probably. Weight is just 1,080kg - 400kg less than standard - while the twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 has had its usual eyewatering 542bhp massaged up to a slightly unhinged 680bhp. The exhaust alone cost twenty grand. Serious piece of kit.

This particular one is due to be auctioned in the US very soon, with an estimate of £150,000-200,000 - out of the reach of the common man but, frankly, a bargain for the amount of car you get.
