468 184 προβολές

In the late 80s, a number of manufacturers were racing to create a production car capable of 200mph. This led to a mini-boom of incredibly bespoke and awe inspiring machinery. Chris Harris believes the Ferrari F40 is the last word in 200mph pioneers, but Freddie Flintoff thinks the Jaguar XJ220 is the ultimate choice. So, let's see what they've got to say and let us know your pick of the two in the comments below.

  • Both of these are gorgeous. Both of these have way more throttle than I have balls. And both of these have about as little traction control as I have driving skill.... So I'd love to wax and polish either of these. Admire them. Check the tire pressure again. Maybe rev them a little once in a while in the drive way. And put it back in the garage in case Chris Harris drops by and wants to give me a ride....

  • Apart from all those comments below: I prefer the XJ220. With its bi-turbo V6 you could take it for shopping as long you don't rev it above 4k rpm. Its ground effect is legendary and I prefer that rounded silhouette with the long, low tail! And yes, "it's a Jaaag" as Jeremy Clarkson would say! Of course the F40 is 'legend' but it drives and looks just brutal...

    Kalle SundqvistKalle SundqvistΠριν 16 ημέρες
  • The XJ220 looks superb. It literally looks like a bullet and it’s fast as one. But to me there’s no competition, the F40 is not only the best 200mph car of its time but perhaps the best car, period. No, I’m not getting biased because of my nationality. I honestly believe this. Clarkson once described it as, quite simply: “the best thing ever made”. It looks exquisite and its V8 produces a symphony unlike any other.

  • 450bhp F40 could do 201mph... to do that now youd need 600 at least McLaren F1 could do 241mph with way under 700bhp.. but a 900bhp P1 only does 218? why are cars slower now?

    • Extra weight. Mostly due to all the additional electronics and sensor suites being added in addition to safety equipment. Due to advancement in manufacturing techniques, engineers are also realizing that they can add structural re-enforcement at no additional costs which will make the cars heavier but crashes more survivable. A customer who survives a crash in your hypercar is capable of buying another one of your hypercars to replaced the wrecked one.

  • Clearly, the F-40 is legendary, but to me the XJ220 is the most beautifully designed car ever built. I’ve seen a number of F-40’s in person though (or afternoon least I’ve seen the same 2 at a number of local car shows). I’ve never seen an XJ in person.

  • Big fan of the jag, but honestly, the f40 is by far the superior car. The xj220 was a mess, not what they promised, promised a v12 (if I'm not mistaken) and promised 4wd,only for it to have a v6 and rwd. Don't get me wrong, it's still ridiculously fast, but I wouldn't wanna drive one around a track thsts for sure. The f40 may not be the best around a track, but the xj220 will downright kill you And then, of course, the mclaren f1 took all the headlines and rightly so. 240 mph in a naturally aspirated car (which is still a record) in 1992. Its insane.
