The Transit was transformed by Jaguar into a secret test vehicle for the XJ220’s engine and running gear early on in the development of the XJ220. The van even had a ladder and roof rack fitted as part of its disguise. Unless you noticed the big ZR high speed tyres and XJ220 alloys, there are few clues to the 542bhp engine lurking underneath.
The XJ220 powered Transit is a monstrous hybrid of supercar and builders van. Powered by the 542BHP twin turbo V6 engine, this oddball creation will out accelerate most sports cars with ease. 0-60 is estimated at under 5 seconds and sprint to a ton in around 10 seconds.
Along with the fun of the jaw dropping turn of speed the driver can enjoy the faces of shocked motorists, ideal in this image obsessed world!
