Incredible to think that the Jaguar XJ220 turned 20 years’ old last year, yet still ranks amongst the fastest cars the world has ever seen.

Famously powered by a version of the twin-turbo V6 petrol engine that was used in both the Metro 6R4 rally car and the Jaguar XJR10/11 racing cars, with a (213mph) 342 kph top speed achieved in testing, the Bugatti EB110 was the only contemporary that ever claimed to match it.
