    incredible machine. fast as #$%# and awesome looking. but one thing about it, this is was the prototype. the one that had a big mishap on the test course? at those times after that no one wanted to #$%# with a V12. one word of advice, just watch ur revs if ur gonna drive that car.

    MMMMMMMMMMMMM ture the rims are not that good but the car is f***ing awsome

    I think the rims were a risky venture - however, I couldn't imagine this car without them. Its authentically "XJ220"<!-- Signature -->

    the rims look like a piece or crap




    this is a mad car
     
  7. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    Felix, you are absolutely right. While the rims do leave something to be desired, it is as much a part of the XJ220 as the car and engine. I would put them on my car, though, my XJ220. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    The whole car, including the rims, was designed by a small group of Jaguar engineers on their spare time. Jaguar didn't actually endorse the car 'til it was unveiled for production.<!-- Signature -->

    I think the rims are cool. It's good to be different from time to time and you don't always need to see the brakes.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    True, but a few holes in those rims would be nice. No full rims.

    keep the faith

    its an Exremely Sleek car indeed, i like the rims on this car, i'm getting bored of seeing the 5 star'd rims anyways, This car would look Phat in Dark Navy Blue Mettalic
     
  15. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    I have to admit that the rims are quite booty. And Renegade, I'm glad to see that others love DBZ as much as me.

    Dragon! Dragon Ball! Dragon Ball Z!!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    the rims go good w/ the body style, it wouldnt look as nice with 5 spokes
     
  18. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    Again I agree, the rims o this car look dope. I should imagine they cost a pretty penny as well..like £2,00 each or sumthing. They give it a more sleek look insted of having to see the big brakes underneath.<!-- Signature -->

    This car looks phat in every color (even yellow). But yes, this car does look sweet in Dark Blue. Check this link for the inner workings of the greatest cars ever: http://www.jcna.com/library/news/2001/jcna0030.html

    damn, they be like 22 inch dubs!!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    I have to agree
     
  22. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    What is wrong with all of you??? Do you see the year this car was made??? I don't know of many cars with "dubs" in 1988 and personally, I'm not a fan of trashy-looking cars so for 1988 this car's rims are fine. Also, last time i checked the looks of the rims didn't enhance the performance of the car. If you see any rims better than this from a pre-1988 car with original rims please respond.
     
  23. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    There was a very good reason for those rims. Flat wheel rim surfaces improve top speed, and that was the major reason the XJ220 was produced (hence the name "220").

    That is the only reason I believe they were made like that.
     
  24. Re: best #$%#ing car ever!, but who the hell made them rims?

    I like the rims,I think they match the body style or lines of this car perfectly.
    And it's a sweet car indeed but best ever not bloody likely.
    And no i'm not british I just wanted to type that,lol.
    I would take the Ferrari f50 over this anyday!
    But this car is very niice too.

    I M P O R T S.R U L E!
     
  25. Re:

    This car is the shiznet.
    It look good as ****, and it runs fast as ****.
    This car has it all, and its 4rm 1988, not bad at all.
    Jaguar was thinkin way ahead at that tyme and they hit a target.
    holla back.
