Anonymous internet hoons Tax The Rich try to set their Jaguar XJ220 alight.

It’s been a while now since we’ve seen the mischievous stylings of Tax The Rich, but the anonymous internet sensation has graced us with another look at their rare Jaguar XJ220 supercar.

Rather than last year’s paddock-bashing effort with the former fastest car in the world, the faceless UK pranksters have chosen to demonstrate the flame-resistance of the big Jag’s paint and aluminium panelwork by performing a stonking great burnout through what looks to be a puddle of petrol.

Somehow, the fast cat appears to emerge unscathed, but we’d urge you to avoid trying this at home with your Mazda 3 or Toyota HiLux. An evidently flameproof Jaguar XJ220 they ain’t.   

If you’re new to the doings of Tax The Rich, be sure to check out their other efforts, including multiple Ferrari F50 exploits, a positively thrashed Ferrari Enzo and 288 GTO, and a Rolls-Royce Phantom being driven like they stole it.
