Well for this review I was requested to hunt down a S class tune for the Jaguar XJ220. The Jaguar XJ220 was made to rival the likes of the Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 in the 1990s. It was originally going to be a 4WD V12 sports car but then Jaguar made some changes and made it a V6 powered RWD light weight 2 door sports car. While Im glad in real life it was made RWD I would have loved to have seen it with a V12. In forza the Jag thankfully doesn’t have access to its 4WD it was originally going to have. The Jag is normally used as a tag car as it can dropped into A class easily however it can be a competitive car in S class.
Now onto the tune which as guessed from its PI is a Medium-short track focused tune. On the track the Jag has a lot of tirespin off the line but makes up for this with its strong grip, quick shifting and solid acceleration. Its a suitable car even without assists. The Jag accelerates at a decent pace until it hits 5th gear where it will start falling behind on the straights. Im not a fan of putting aero on this car but the aero does its job well as the car is very stable as you build up speed. The Jag unlike other cars with this amount of power is very quiet on the road. The Jag is at its best on medium-short tracks and is also a decent car for Fujimi kaido and Rally Di positano. The 6 Cylinder engine powering the Jag produces 554 horses and will accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds and its speed will top out at 186mph

The Jags does come with its downsides however and in that case it is the top speed for the Jag as mentioned above the uphill climb slows to almost a halt when you hit 5th gear in this car. While it can hold its own, the XJ220 is completely outclassed but some of the stronger cars of S class including one of its main rival in real life the Ferrari F40.
Other than that the XJ220 is a fairly cheap and fun car which when pushed hard can produce a nice time or two.
