Top Gear

21 giorno fa

In the late 80s, a number of manufacturers were racing to create a production car capable of 200mph. This led to a mini-boom of incredibly bespoke and awe inspiring machinery. Chris Harris believes the Ferrari F40 is the last word in 200mph pioneers, but Freddie Flintoff thinks the Jaguar XJ220 is the ultimate choice. So, let's see what they've got to say and let us know your pick of the two in the comments below.

Both of these are gorgeous. Both of these have way more throttle than I have balls. And both of these have about as little traction control as I have driving skill.... So I'd love to wax and polish either of these. Admire them. Check the tire pressure again. Maybe rev them a little once in a while in the drive way. And put it back in the garage in case Chris Harris drops by and wants to give me a ride....

Really hard to choose between the two. I do like the F40's simpleton appeal, but the XJ220's speed is something that really cannot be ignored.

For 200 mph pioneers, my personal favorite will always be the 1988 Calloway Corvette Sledgehammer, which did 254 mph in 1988.

Where is the best place to watch Top Gear? After Clarkson and the lads departed, I didn't watch another Top Gear. But GT is putting out a special like once every 2 years now, and I want more content. Ready to give it another go.

Apart from all those comments below: I prefer the XJ220. With its bi-turbo V6 you could take it for shopping as long you don't rev it above 4k rpm. Its ground effect is legendary and I prefer that rounded silhouette with the long, low tail! And yes, "it's a Jaaag" as Jeremy Clarkson would say! Of course the F40 is 'legend' but it drives and looks just brutal...

The XJ220 looks superb. It literally looks like a bullet and it’s fast as one. But to me there’s no competition, the F40 is not only the best 200mph car of its time but perhaps the best car, period. No, I’m not getting biased because of my nationality. I honestly believe this. Clarkson once described it as, quite simply: “the best thing ever made”. It looks exquisite and its V8 produces a symphony unlike any other.

450bhp F40 could do 201mph... to do that now youd need 600 at least McLaren F1 could do 241mph with way under 700bhp.. but a 900bhp P1 only does 218? why are cars slower now?

Extra weight. Mostly due to all the additional electronics and sensor suites being added in addition to safety equipment. Due to advancement in manufacturing techniques, engineers are also realizing that they can add structural re-enforcement at no additional costs which will make the cars heavier but crashes more survivable. A customer who survives a crash in your hypercar is capable of buying another one of your hypercars to replaced the wrecked one.

Clearly, the F-40 is legendary, but to me the XJ220 is the most beautifully designed car ever built. I’ve seen a number of F-40’s in person though (or afternoon least I’ve seen the same 2 at a number of local car shows). I’ve never seen an XJ in person.

Big fan of the jag, but honestly, the f40 is by far the superior car. The xj220 was a mess, not what they promised, promised a v12 (if I'm not mistaken) and promised 4wd,only for it to have a v6 and rwd. Don't get me wrong, it's still ridiculously fast, but I wouldn't wanna drive one around a track thsts for sure. The f40 may not be the best around a track, but the xj220 will downright kill you And then, of course, the mclaren f1 took all the headlines and rightly so. 240 mph in a naturally aspirated car (which is still a record) in 1992. Its insane.

As much as I admire both cars, as much as I am sad how Top Gear has plummetted to this quality. No offense but I reckon the presenters have no public appeal nor acceptance. The golden era was with the trio Clarkson, Hammond, and May. That show used to be the most thing putting a smile on my face.. Nothing lasts for ever...

Enzo Ferrari was a racing driver first, that's why his cars are focused on racing and a driver. He aimed to create a car that wouldn't have to slow down when cornering. It all started around 100 years ago. In 1920 he joined Alfa Romeo racing department as a driver. Scuderia Ferrari was originally created to race for Alfa Romeo. His aim was always to build racing cars, that's why he sold the civil cars department to FIAT. Looking at both manufactures now, would you believe it?

Technically the Jaguar XJ220 did pass the 220 mph mark, how ever it was on the extremely rare "S" variant and it's not written down in the history books because they only made 6 that were road legal... They were wild things, They took the power from about 540hp and raised it to 680hp, replaced all the body panels with carbon fibre ones, removed the stereo, removed the Air conditioner & even those lovely leather seats - a bit like Porsche, Ferrari & Lamborghini do these days. Anyways the end result was an offical 228 MPH (365 km/h), though there have been sputters and unconfirmed rumours some years ago of a couple of these "S" models breaking 240 MPH - if that were true, it would faster than the F1 Mclaren - but you have to wonder if it's true and let's just pretend it did hit 241 MPH, it's still not considered a production car and hitting those speeds, I would think some engine modifications were don't to crank a bit more power out of the 3.5 lire monster. As you can guess, The XJ200 was my wall poster car as a kid... and I've had one for a good 20 years now... but... it's just a 1/12 scale model though ^^
