Does anyone on here actually own an XJ220? My dream is to own one someday.

Are you insane??
How much does an XJ220 cost?
isnt it $1 million?
how many XJ220 are there in the whole world?
and how many of those owners do you think like to chat on the web?
and how many of those handful {if any} owners know about AF when it's only 2 or 3 months old?

the chances of XJ220 owner lurking this board are pretty slim as you can see

You never know where you might run into an XJ220 owner. True, they're a limited production car and they cost a fortune, but I've talked to a few XJ220 owners online in the past.

Uh, they are quite a bit less than a million.
Jaguar originally asked 800 000, but they didn't sell well.
THERE ARE STILL SOME BRAND-NEW ONES, NEVER BEEN DRIVEN, FOR SALE!!!!!! They cost about 250 grand. They didn't sell because the economy went to the dogs, and few people could afford them. I think they made 250-350 of them.
Nice car, really advanced, but a V6, honestly. (yes I know its a marvel, but for 800000,no thanks. For a quarter million, its looking alot better)
No, I don't own one.

No, it doesn't REALLY count, but, yah know, hea.
Mike Tyson bought his new, and you saw it in DUB, a mag for (usually) customized cars. Tysons car wasn't going to be on the cover, so he got his Jag, adn they put it on! In the states, only him and Bill Gates have one.

Yah, Bill is the richest guy in the world (although he was knocked off briefly TWICE last year), and Mike gets 50 million bucks for ONE match!
Smoke them

I'm pretty sure Bill is the richest in the world currently, but hes not as rich as he used to be.

Just inquire to Jaguar, the company. Say you want to buy a XJ220, and you can take delivery immediately, and arrange a meeting. Why, do you have a quarter mil lying around?? If so, I'll take 50 grand please. Please? Please??

There just wasn't a market (economy went to the shits), and now people have lost interest, and a quarter mil is great for this car.
