1993 Jaguar XJ220 3.5 twin turbo


If you can get one, get one!


The cigarette lighter stopped working at 100,000 miles.

Replacement clutch required at 57,000 and 112,000. Don't use the car much now, mainly for track days.

Difficult to park.

General Comments:

Lovely car to look at. Looks fast even when standing still.

Great sound from the engine.

Handles well in power slides.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Do anyone have a real jaguar xj220 review?

1994 Jaguar XJ220 3.5 litre


Very little has gone wrong with this car. There was minor problem with the brake lights - the bulbs kept blowing every couple of months - but this was sorted out by an auto-electric shop relatively cheaply. I also find that the brakes need frequent attention, which is usually costly.

General Comments:

I previously owned a 1998 reg. XK8 and to be honest I found that this car was more comfortable to drive and handled better than the xj220, despite the fact that it only cost me about 1/3 of the price of the xj220. Also I find the interior of the xj220 to be very bland for such an expensive car. My 220 has a black leather interior and a black dash, while the xk8 had cream leather interior and plenty of Walunt veneer around the dash area - altogether the xk8 was a much more classy car inside.

I can understand the interior being a bit disappointing, given that the XJ220 engineers pinched car parts from some underwhelming sources. For example, the rear lights are actually those of a Vauxhall Carlton...
