  1. Which car do you think will win?
     
  2. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    I think the F40 would win though its topspeed lies lower...
     
  3. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    The F40. The Handling....
     
  4. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    when you look at the preformance, I would think the XJ220, but I thing the F40 could take it.
     
  5. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    i think the f40 would outhandle the Xj, but the Xj220 is faster in topspeed. They both appeal to me very much in their looks, but around a track, the F40 would win, but the XJ220s topspeed makes up for for that with having a better topspeed. Both cars kick ass.

    The Jaguar would probaly win, although, the F40 has a good chance.

    F40 is faster than a lot of Supercars: also XJ220!
    Look the Ruoteclassiche F40 test:
    http://www.edidomus.it/autoclassiche/automoto/protagoniste/visualizza_articolo.cfm?codice=15120&pagina=20206&canaleuscita=-1&chiave=&sez=Protagoniste

    ACCELERAZIONE
    1 km con partenza da fermo:sec. 21,01s (velocità d'uscita km/h 262,4)

    0-60Kmh 2,5s
    0-80kmh 3,3s
    0-100kmh 4,6s
    0-120Kmh 5,6s
    0-140Kmh 6,6s
    0-160Kmh 8,1s
    0-180Kmh 9,5s
    0-200Kmh 11,4s
    0-220Kmh 13,9s
    0-240Kmh 16,5s


    And Look here the test of XJ220 by Auto Motor und Sport:
    http://www.powerful-cars.com/jaguar%20xj220/jaguar%20xj220.htm

    Beschl. 0- 80km/h 3,1s
    Beschl. 0-100km/h 4,0s
    Beschl. 0-120km/h 5,2s
    Beschl. 0-160km/h 7,9s
    Beschl. 0-180km/h 9,9s
    Beschl. 0-200km/h 12,2s
    Viertelmeile 11,9s (196km/h)
    steh. km 21,2s (ca. 258km/h)

    So all this confirm that F40 is faster than XJ220!!!
    XJ220 has a better traction at the start, look the 0-80Kmh, 3.1s vs 3.3s of F40, also the gearbox of XJ220 is faster in the change of 1st gear to the 2nd gear, look the difference at 120Kmh, approx 0.4s!
    But look how f40 is fast after 120Kmh……did 0-200Kmh in 11.4s in this test, XJ220 did 12.2s with better start traction!!
    Look the time of Km standing start: 21.0s vs 21.2s (at 262.4Kmh vs 258Kmh)!!! but consider the start traction…
    I have other tests of F40 (Km in 20.80s and 20.98s) and all the Supercars, and I can see you that F40 is faster than a lot of Supercars...(F50, Zonda S, EB110GT, Diablo GT and Jota,......)
     
  10. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    I'd Take the Ferrari because of its famous handling and its a Ferrari
     
  11. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    F40 Le Mans summed it up pretty well.

  19. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    i think da Enzo will pullout da winna
     
  20. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    XJ220
     
  21. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    F40 for me too.
    By the way, I think an Enzo could beat an F1 on a track.
    McLaren has a 240 mph top speed, but it takes quite a while to get there, it's acceleration in the high gears isn't that great. On a track with turns it would never reach 240. The Enzo could also outhandle a McLaren.

    Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    The F40 would definently win, Has anyone ever seen the turbo lag on and XJ220, it's horrible. Top Gear compared the two and the f40 won, the vido is available on www.racingflix.com
     
  23. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    How are you comparing them?

    On the track yes the F40 would win. Closest thing to a racecar in its time and still is. The jag is too big and too heavy for the track.

    Acceleration is fairly close. Top speed is close too 200-217mph and I would think the F40 could get to 200mph faster than the jag to 200mph.

    But compare them on the street it goes to the XJ220. It has a nice laid out interior and is much quieter than the F40.
     
  24. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    id take the XJ220 hands down no questions asked.
    As for the Enzo vs. the Mclaren F1 there is no contest, the Mclaren F1 is faster than any car in production.

    Mercedez-Benz CLK/GTR vs. McLaren F1?

    Id take McLaren.
     
  25. Re: Ferrari F40 vs. Jaguar XJ220

    F40 Vs XJ220?
    100 % F40 (but I like the Jag very much!!)
    Enzo Vs F1?
    100% Enzo (on straight performances are the same, except top speed, handling and brakes not too...)
    F1 Vs CLK-GTR?
    Mmmmh, I don't know, probably the F1
