    Heavy, anti climax comapred to what is was going to be, and the engine from a metro. Apart from that, pretty cool though!

    I was lookin in a Aston dealership once, there were loads of Astin's (obviously!) Lotus's, and a few Bently's... then at the back of the show room, hidden away i noticed a XJ220! I almost fell over! What an amazing machine... but what was it doing right at the back?!!! I've never seen one on the road though, must have been a great sight

    It could have been something very very special indeed if Jag made what they said they would, but they didn't.

    still a very pretty white elephant

    incrediable looking car - still looks good. I remember when it came out in the 90's and you just thought "I want one".

    it was in leeds, on roundhay road, OMG, the sound, the sound would make any subaru, pulsar or evo sound crap. even tho i only heard it for like 1 second, i knew that it was something special.

    i noticed it out of the corner of my eye, coming towards me, and straight away knew what it was, i used to drive one in need for speed 2 (when i was like 10 years old). it was like a gunmetal grey colour. it was amazing, i wanted to pull infront of it, just so if would stop, i'd put my hazards on and get out, look around the car, and take pics.




    i want one

    Lol at this thread as it reminded me of when a Pagani Zonda drove past us on the A1. My mrs was driving and I made such a fuss that a Zonda had just driven past us that she missed the exit!
