Headquartered in England, Jaguar is a luxury vehicle manufacturer that merged in 2013 with Land Rover to form the Jaguar Land Rover automobile company. Jaguar began its existence as the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922 making sidecars for motorcycles.
Jaguar left its image of sidecars in the dust with the creation of some of the fastest production cars in the world. One such vehicle was the 1992 XJ220. At the time, it was confirmed as the fastest production car in the world hitting a recorded speed of 217 mph on the Nardo track in Italy.
