This 1993 Jaguar XJ220 is one of only 281 models produced by Jaguar from 1992 to 1994.
It fits a Tom Walkinshaw developed 3.5 litre V6 as used in the Group C XJR-10/11 racers, with twin Garrett T3 turbochargers, generating 542 horsepower and 476 lb·ft of torque.
The engine was the first V6 in Jaguar's history, being a 6-cylinder derivation from the Cosworth DFV Formula 1 engine, originally designed by David Wood for the Austin Metro 6R4 rally car. It was also the first Jaguar engine to use forced induction. In spite of the smaller displacement, it produced more power than the V12, and offered improved handling by being set lower and more centrally in the car.
