Richard Hammond drives the icons
Hamster has a go in the most expensive Jaguar ever made – the £413k XJ220
Posted: 24 May 2012
It was only with us for two years. Sadly, the most expensive Jaguar ever made arrived just in time to see the supercar bubble burst. And at nearly half-a-million pounds, this was a supercar for the super rich in price, if not performance. Once Elton and the Sultan had taken delivery, interest waned. In the murky underworld of limited production runs, Jaguar had announced it would make 220 XJ220s, but had been prepared to turn out 350 of them. In the end, Jag stopped at 281.
