Crap car....

  1. Re: Crap car....

    I am not sure what the the last XJ220S TWR sold for seen as how there are only 5 in existence, but the stock XJ220s sell for under $300,000. Don't believe me? Pick up a Dupont Registry or go to their website. While the initial price was over 400K, the lack of demand has pulled the price of remaining XJ220s down. And no speed? lag? were you born without a brain or did you pick it out through your nose? If you replaced this aluminium body with a carbon fiber one like the McLaren I bet it would top 240 as well, and with a V6! Now I like the McLaren F1, and I'd love to have 2 of 'em, but talking smack on this former top-speed holding car is like saying Evander Holyfield couldn't whip your ass 'cuz he's retired. Get a brain.

    Well the guy in the forum who claims to know the most about the cars says the TVR is 70,000lbs wtf is that a mac truck shit bro? Also i think we are missing the point here these two cars are both great in their own respects i doubt if many of us own one or ever will and isn't that the great thing about supercars or at least the thing that makes them super. I garantee anyone who argues for either side maclaren or jag would just #$%#ing die if they were behind the wheel of either because thats the thing that fantasies are made of and thats the feeling which brings all the car lovers of the world to this one site, don't miss out on the point for it is truly a moot argument.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: Crap car....

    i think that people should compare the xj-220 to the mclaren as much, i am a huge fan of the xj-220. the mclaren is a better car performance wise, but its also in a different league as the mclaren, if jaguar's engineers werent COMPLETE IDIOTS they could have made a better car. the mclaren is built all around better, also why it costs twice as much. but one thing the xj-220 has over the mclaren, and its the only thing that keeps jaguar from going bankrupt from making shitty cars, the looks. the xj-220 looks a thousand times better than the mclaren, it just how jaguar works, they make beautiful, high performance, cheaply made, poorly assembled, and terribly engineered cars.<!-- Signature -->

  5. Re: Crap car....

    what a lot of people are forgetting is that not every f1 hit 240. That car had special gearing when the last mclaren was made i dont even think they got it much above 220

    Do any of YOU have a car that goes that fast?
    Well?

  7. Re: Crap car....

    And why are all these McLaren people in THIS forum? I haven't dissed the McLaren in the McLaren forum. Maybe I will now.

    "if jaguar's engineers werent COMPLETE IDIOTS they could have made a better car. "




    You are obviously the idiot. Jaguar XJ220 is a masterpeice of engineering. I'd like to see you fit all that power in a twin turbo V6. And you forget that this car was made several years before McClarren.

    JAGUAR XJ220 IS THE GREATEST MACHINE EVER ASSEMBLED!
     
  9. Re: Crap car....

    its funny this car was going to be sooo swoit with the concept but its was all crap this car was going to have a v12 all wheel drive and everything else but in the end they put in a v6 with turbos.......if you can get that mutch power out ov the v6 then your engine would ALWAYS screw up. jaguar turned povo in the early 90's and couldnt afford all the good stuff

  12. Re: Crap car....

    A lot has been said about this car, Its Personal Opinion which one is better, but there are a few things that make this car juat that much more a realistic dream than the mclaren. Price, Production and obviously availability as they are neither in produciton today.

    The last XJ220 that was sold was elton johns sold for close to $700,000 Australian Dollars... The last F1 that was sold to ralph lauren was 1.6 million Australian Dollars. (the bastard now owns two)and There are only 6 in america.

    The XJ220 was produced in a figure of 220 units ( according to the history of jaguar book). Just to add a catch to the name. Im not sure of the F1 production units abut i think its 25. And we know some of those have burned in crashes.

    Which brings us to availabiity today...
    220 - some = more than 25 - some

    but as i said .... dream<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: Crap car....

    Are you jealous that the McLaren has some more competition now? So it doesn't have a top speed of 240 MPH, or very good brakes. Is that all? I think this car looks much better than the McLaren, and the only reason it goes so fast is because it has a powerful BMW V-12. If it had an engine made by the same company that made the body, it would be a crap car in its own right. Obviously, you can't cope with a little Twin Turbo V6 beating your V12 McLaren, huh?<!-- Signature -->

    <b>Ummm.....obviously everybody who is syaing that this car sucks and how its slow and so on...well you guys have to get your head out of your ass. Because first off base the two on their price alone. Hmmm....McLaren's are a million dollar car while the Jaguar is about ehh...at the most $400,000. So which one is the better car for the money? So what you McLaren guys are saying is that you would rather go out and spend an extra $600,000 for a car that goes a few mph faster *and where would you go that fast anyways?* and oh, the turbo lag is bad, well I'm sorry but 0-60 in 3.3 sec. is pretty damn fast to me, and the brakes suck, well go out and buy a pair of Brembo's for a few grand and there you go. So overall you saved yourself $593,000 for you McLaren. With the $593,000 left over you can go out and buy yourself a new Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, NSX, Viper GTS, etc. but lemme guess their all POS's because their not as fast or as quick as the Mclaren? Well go and check out what are the fasts top speed cars and fastest 0-60 cars on this website. Your McLaren is not the best car out there as you can tell. But yes the McLaren is a fast car. But does a few mph. mean everything?</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    Hehe, all you McLaren anti-Jaguar dickheads just got pissed on, this guy really knows what he's talking about, and anyone who disagrees should piss off from this site and go annoy someone who cares<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: Crap car....

    Crap car? What did you do, shit the Hot Wheels version out of your ass? Compared to those Mac F1s you don't just save about 600 Large, you'll get a beatiful car and a luxurious ride to go with it. What's to compare?

    That's the dumbest thing i've ever heard on this website..."who's ever gonna go that fast on a city street?"...if you don't want a fast car, then good for you. You can go get yourself a Toyota Echo. Some people have respect for a well-built car with awesome performance, whether or not they're planning on driving it at 230 + mph. You go have fun driving down the freeway at 65...i'll see you in my rearview mirror.

    You're laughable with this post.
     
  18. Re: Crap car....

    who gives a s*it abiut brakes? just buy new ones for like 1000$ or somthing. Thats a stupid thing to talk about when you have hp, speed acceleration and so on! Turbo lag? Just tune it to lower the lag! If it can get up to 220mph with Turbo lag then without it, it might be able to go 5-10 miles faster. WHHOOPEE! And for the record, its better then your hyundai.

    I hope you're only talking about the wheels, because this car's awesome!

  23. Re: Crap car....

    just a few points.
    1.In no way shape or form is this a crap car! what the hell is supposed to be crap about it?!!?
    2. 2 the guy who was on about mclaren not making the engine for the f1, mclaren are a formula 1 team, 9 out of the 10 teams dont make there own engines, thus mclaren wont have any expertease in building an engine, thats why bmw did it.
    3. As to which car is better, the mclaren f1 or the xj220, that is an impossible question to answer, it all comes down to personal preferance, i cant choose so id have to have both :) (in my dreams)
     
  24. I'm sorry. Theres one thing your wrong about. Dont get me wrong, I love this car, but instead of costing 400 grand it costs 700 000 USD.
