Model: Jaguar XJ220
Release: Hot Wheels 2010 Speed Machines
Ebay link: Hot Wheels Speed Machines
Why I am featuring it: I collect the Jaguar XJ220 casting. I had the original release in silver when it came out in 1993 when I was a young kid. So naturally, it is a casting that I am trying to complete. There are a couple of tougher ones to acquire and the two Speed Machines releases make that short list (I am still missing the other one in white). Speed Machines in general, are a series that I completely missed as I was not collecting at the time that they were released. Now, of course, they are expensive. They probably are the most expensive modern series to acquire that has plastic tires. They’re all nicely done and if you like supercars this is a series that you will want to chip away at. I realize that it is not a series I am likely to complete so I am lucky to have a couple of releases of castings that I collect including this Jag.
