  1. NO WAYYYYYYYYY<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. What can i say..since we are peasants by birth our modest wish to own this jag would necessitate an achievment of material well-being by hook or by crook and it's a bitter truth.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. this definetly looks better.<!-- Signature -->

    jag has nothing to do with 'venturi action' or 'venturi chassis'.vice versa,mclaren does.even guru errs..i'm vexed</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    Do you know what does the Venturi effect is ??

    It's the proper name of ground effect , the XJ220 has a wind rail under the chassis to increase the downforce.

    That allows it to corner very fast.
     
  5. MacLaren F-1 for me. The F-1 is less powerful, heavier but it's still acclerates faster and posts a faster top speed.<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. ummm, yes, it is better...but the cars are very different, different price ranges, different performance, different engineering, different ideas of perfection...but of course, this is fantasy, so im going with this, THIS XJ220...

    for a 3litre V6 TT, it kicks ass, but does anybody have any idea how much more ass this car could kick if Jaguar had stayed with the V12??? and once more, slapped twin superchargers on it??? (it has been done...see "Lister-Jaguar XJ40 V12 twin supercharged") it would make the world spin out from under it with all that torque generated!!!

    but yes, i would choose this car over the mclaren f1 any day<!-- Signature -->

  8. OOOOO come on! the mac is better, how can you compare a tank (xj220) with the mac, i love the jag, but the mac is better, i have seen them both in laguna seca and the mac beat the jag, because the mac could turn a lot faster than the jag, and the acceleration of the mac is better, however, i love the jag, it's beautiful and classy..
    bye :D
     
  9. the macs been the best for so long we need another best supercar and this one might just be the one! it wins in style id say.









    I love Jennifer!!!!!<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

     
  10. i would have to say the jag because it is a v6. no one does this with a v6 and it weighs so little. all you would have to do is get a little bigger turbos or bump up the psi and it would smoke the mclaren
     
  11. No its not, they handle about the same but the Mclaren is Faster<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. better than a maclaren f1?

    well is it or is it not?
     
  13. Better in which aspects? Price wise this is a better deal. I'd go with the XJ220. What difference does 10 mph make? I wouldn't drive this car over 150 much less 200. If I got one I'd drive 10 mph UNDER the speed limit so everyone would see me.
     
  14. I would rather have an XJ220 instead of the F1, just got to change the stock XJ220 wheels<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Nope, this car is not better than the famed F1. But we have to look beyond the top speeds like so many do. This car is 1993 and considering that the XJ220 was only a SPARE TIME PROJECT - it was pretty sucsessful. The McLaren however, was a much more serious project, and the designers at McLaren had no time to second guess. Their car was intended to do one thing. Be the best in the world. So much more extensive planning went into the F1.
    You can't really compare the two - since they are very much two different cars in their own aspects. Overall, the McLaren is an obvious pick. But its really up to ones opinion.<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. This car is good, but how could you even compare it to a McLaren. A McLaren is a Mclaren, and a Jaguar, is, well a Jaguar<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">.
     
  17. There are damn few cars that I would take over an F1, so I'd say the Mac is better. The F50, the 959, and the XJ220 are all up there in the "dream supercars" list for me, but the MacLaren F1 is the classic badass supercar, so I would have to go with that.

    Mostly, I don't like that it's a TT V6 in a wussy-looking body. The Mac's faster anyway.<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. One Word: NO


    Jags Rule!
     
  19. One word emphasized: YES
     
  20. God I love this car. McLaren? What McLaren? All I see is a silver bullet covered in dust...oh look at that! A JAGUAR is giving the Mac F1 a bath...in dirt.
     
  21. The Jag may be faster than the F1 , because it's designed with Venturi effect.
     
  22. This one's better...why compare?
     
  23. You can't really say what is better than the other. There is no definete winner - they are both two magnificently capable machines. <!-- Signature -->
     
  24. This car weighs nothing!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I just noticed that that's all. It would be a very good contest, and I really can't say, I hope this would, because I'm sick of the McLaren F1 and all this idolization of the car
     
  25. the big mac any day.<!-- Signature -->
