Jaguar XJ220 by Overdrive

If you’ve never seen or heard a Jaguar XJ220 then you have missed out on one of the biggest automotive masterpieces of all time. I love that Jaguar, I think it’s the best the British manufacturer has ever come up with and one of the true and best super-cars in the world. So, when I heard someone decided to fiddle around with it, I though of one thing: Sacrilege!

Bulgarian specialist Overdrive decided to accept the challenge of improving upon the Jaguar XJ220, and it’s a stressful job since Jaguar only built 275 units of this model. This particular XJ was the 98th car manufactured by Jaguar and has been driven for just 12,427 miles (20,000 km). If you check out the gallery below and like what you see you should know that the car is up for grabs at Auto Performance in Germany for a hefty 400,001 EUR (about 544,300 USD or 330,000 GBP).

On the outside, the exclusive 90’s super-car features a unique green with brown and golden chameleon exterior paintjob and a carbon exhaust system provided by Akrapovic. It rides on 19-inch front / 20-inch rear ADV.1 Wheels with central locking and has been fitted with LED daytime running lights as well as Ferrari 599 GTB-sourced taillights. The V6 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine and five-speed manual gearbox went through a restoration process, while inside the cabin the carbon fiber trim, leather and Alcantara upholstery and the Ground Zero audio system with McIntosh player will make any ride more enjoyable. Although, who would want to turn on the music when you’ve got the sound of that Jaguar engine keeping you company?
