Motoring: Bargain Hunter

Car Of The Week
Super-Jag is the deal of the decade

SUPERCARS AND speculation were inseparable in the late '80s, early '90s. Ferrari's F40 and the Porsche 959, both changed hands for hundreds of thousands more than their already six-figure asking prices.

The bubble burst with the pounds 403,000 Jaguar XJ220. It was a large, unmissable and incredibly quick car reaching 60mph in just 4 seconds and with a top speed of over 200mph. Maybe that is why someone in Japan slid off on a corner and thumped a tree stump. Since then it has been transported to Cleave Motor Salvage in Gloucester. Although it needs pounds 20,000 of remedial work the asking price is still an incredibly reasonable pounds 60,000. Bargain of the decade. Contact Cleave Motor Salvage 01452 501404.
