Fastest Production Car of Its Time

1993 Jaguar XJ220

Every once in a decade a car manufacturer goes beyond the pale to produce a car so ahead of its time that it becomes legend from the gitgo. They say the design staff at the Coventry plant got so caught up in the design of the Jaguar XJ220 that it became an obsession to create the greatest sports car of all time. It was named the XJ220, referring to the 220 miles per hour factory rated top speed. As the costs mounted to build such a car, the price of the JX220 reached 470,000 pounds sterling. Sadly, only 282 of the XJ220 exotic sports cars was produced before the project was shut down by Jaguar. But that makes them so rare and desirable that they are revered in today’s collector car world.

In a rare offering, Legendary Motorcar Company has listed this 1993 Jaguar XJ220 for sale this week. One of the most coveted super cars ever introduced, the XJ220 still has just 703 actual miles as reported in the Legendary Motorcar Company review. It has the JV6 mid-mounted Turbocharged V6 engine tuned to produce 542 horsepower.

Shown on rare occasions, the XJ220 scored a 9.998 at the Jaguar Club of Florida Concours d’Elegance in 2021, and had previously taken a Best-in-Class award nationally. The car achieved a Best in Class win at the Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance, also in 2021. Of course, it comes heavily documented and has a known history. The XJ220 will be referred to in the same breath as the Ferrari F40, the Porsche 959 or the Bugatti EB110.

Rare Shelby Series 1

Carroll Shelby, for all of his successes in designing and racing sports cars, had never built a car from the ground up. He decided to scratch that itch when he developed his seminal achievement, the Shelby Series 1 exotic super car. This pristine 1999 Shelby Series 1 is being offered for sale by Fast Lane Classic Cars in St Charles, Missouri. They tell us it is the #004 car produced out of just 249 Series 1 cars every built. And they say it still has just 739 miles recorded since new. Shelby’s fascination with the Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0L DOHC V8 lead him to use the versatile power plant producing 320 horsepower. It has a ZF 6-speed manual transaxle. It was one of the first uses of carbon fiber and fiberglass together over an aluminum chassis. Race shop equipment such as the double wishbone suspension, inboard coilover shocks and 4-wheel disc brakes were also used. Click the link to review dozens of detailed photos.

Deals of the Day

1977
1977 Ford Ranchero GT

Today we want to introduce our readers to an interesting wholesale dealer in Shoreline, Washington where you will come across some of the best deals in the country. Meet Rich’s Car Corner, where Rich and his family run a small shop with some buried treasures. Here is a 1977 Ford Ranchero GT that has an NOM 400 ci V8 engine. It has recent paint with factory details, period correct turbine wheels, and the interior is said to have been redone. It will be our Deal of the Day on Saturday. The asking price is $13,999.

1979

1979 Oldsmobile Hurst W-30

Rich also has a great deal on a 1979 Oldsmobile Hurst W-30 in his inventory this week. You may remember that Oldsmobile kept its muscle car customers satisfied by reintroducing the mid-sized Cutlass in muscle car special edition tributes. About 2,500 of these were produced based on the Cutlass Calais. This one will be our Deal of the Day on Sunday. The asking price is $14,999. You can’t beat that with a stick.

1949 Ford Coupe

The 1949 Ford Coupe with the single “bullet” front grille was a popular “new” body style and look for that era. It was one of the first new body styles to come out after World War II. Anything different was popular. This 2-Door Coupe is a “good solid car says Haggle Me, an internet broker representing their collector client. They say the car comes from Florida, and has a stock flathead V8 engine, 3-speed manual transmission, converted 12-volt electrical system, dual exhaust, aftermarket air conditioning and nice custom interior. In their words, “This car runs and drives excellent!” It will be our DEAL of the DAY on Monday. Their price: $19,900.

1960 Triumph TR3

If you have an adventurous spirit and a knack for working on British sports cars, this 1960 Triumph TR3 Roadster is a great find. It is being offered for sale through Beverly Hills Car Club in Los Angeles. Not a perfect car, the body needs some work and the top needs new cloth. But you don’t often see a ’60 this nice. It has wire wheels with two-eared knock-off wheel spinners, front-wheel disc brakes, SU dual carburetors, single exhaust outlet, Jaeger instruments, Lucas-branded ammeter gauge, convertible soft top frame, chrome bumpers, three-spoke steering wheel, whitewall tires, and side curtains on the side. It will be our DEAL of the DAY on Tuesday. I think you will agree that this is a lotta’ car for the money. They are asking $15,750.

Often there are more cars that deserve to be in the DEAL of the DAY than we can schedule for our front page feature. Here is a list of cars that just missed the cut for the DEAL of the DAY this week. Remember, you saw them here first:
