In 1991, a prototype of the Jaguar XJ220 was at the German Nürburgring circuit undergoing tests. It recorded an impressive lap of the track in 7:36.46 and made it the fastest production car to take a lap of ‘Green Hell’.

In 1993, Jaguar contested the 24 Hours of Le Mans with three units of the XJ220-C. The English team won the GT category, beating a legion of Porsche. Great news for Jaguar. However, when it came to the XJ220, this was not the end of the story. Later, it was discovered that the cars did not have catalytic converters, something that was obligatory according to the regulations. In this way, they were disqualified and dispossessed of the title.
