1993 Jaguar XJ220S

Only 6 built. With light weight carbon composite bodies and are powered by 
twin-turbo V6 engines that deliver 680 horsepower. 
These were basically road versions of the XJ220C competition cars. 
From 1992-94, other 281 production road version XJ220s were built 
and sold to raise fund for Jaguar to enter the GT race. 
But they all have heavier aluminum bodies.

2012 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary V12 Roadster

2012 marks the AMG brand’s 45th birthday and to commemorate the milestone at the New York Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced a special anniversary edition of the V12-powered SL 65 AMG roadster, of which only 45 will be produced worldwide. The unique matte grey finish is called “designo magno graphite”. (

The Exterior Carbon-Fibre package in matt finish is exclusive to the SL 65 AMG '45th ANNIVERSARY'. The cross strut in the front apron, the exterior mirrors and the spoiler lip are produced in genuine carbon fibre wîth a satin finish. The AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine features the same look: the high-quality engine cover consists of matt carbon fibre and aluminium. A defining stylistic element is the upholstery in designo Exclusive STYLE leather in titanium grey pearl/ginger beige. The distinctive upholstery featuring the AMG-specific V12 layout wîth a diamond pattern adorns both the electrically adjustable AMG sports seats and the door centre panels. Embossed AMG emblems on the seat backrests exude the same class as the designo nappa leather roof lining in ginger beige featuring special stitching details in AMG V12 diamond pattern. The AMG Performance §teering wheel sports an AMG logo in its bottom bezel and offers a two-tone rim in titanium grey/ginger beige. The AMG trim elements are also finished in matt carbon fibre to match the matt finish of the Exterior Carbon-Fibre package. A badge on the ashtray cover bearing the logo '45th ANNIVERSARY – 1 OF 45' alludes to the 45th birthday of the AMG high-performance brand and highlights the exclusive character of this very special SL 65 AMG.
