COLLECTOR CAR REVIEWS: FERRARI, LAMBORGHINI, JAGUAR AND MORE!Date: 2019-05-03
It's not often you get to see three very rare supercars like the Ferrari F50, Lamborghini SE30 and the Jaguar XJ220 in one place – Jeff Hill explores them and more.
These three vehicles positively are exclusive collector's items and to have them parked alongside each other is a sight that very seldom happens. Vehicle enthusiast, Jeff Hill, takes us on a trip to explore each one in this edition of EnthusiastTV.
First up is the Lamborghini Diablo SE30, of which only 150 were built. Rare, even in its heyday, the SE30 was Lamborghini's Tour De Force in the late 1990s. Bruit force from its V12 engine and that menacing design made it the poster child of little boys dreams. Even its name, Diablo, was an accurate representation of its ability to go fast.
Then we have the Jaguar XJ220. In 1993, this British icon was the fastest car in the world, breaking the record around the Nürburgring, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans and earning the right to be the most expensive car in the world. Only 281 ever made, which makes the chances of you seeing one is less likely than being bitten by a shark.
Hugely undervalued, prices are set to skyrocket, but things weren't so rosy when they were released because owners who were expecting a great big V12 were shocked to see a 3-litre V6 under the hood. It didn't matter though because it would still go on to record its fastest speed at 217.1mph.
And then there's the Ferrari F50. This is the car that introduced their Formula 1 heart into a mainstream supercar. At the time it was a brave step for Ferrari, with many critics suggesting its predecessor, the F40, was better. But they are entirely different vehicles and the F50 is a legend of epic proportions.
Seated in the engine bay sits Ferrari's V12 from their Formula 1 car of the time, it has very little traction control and stripped out to make it feel like a racing car.
Jeff gives us a glimpse of what they are like to drive and it'll make you want one of them all over again.
But, that's not all he shows us. Jeff is a collector car broker and takes us through some other up-and-coming future collectables, like the Nissan 300ZX, the Delorian and others. Hit the play button below to find out if you own any of them. Who knows, you might be sitting on a gold mine.
