Most Insane Van Ever

This thing is completely nuts. I'll let you guys have a few guess's first. Hint the wheels should give it away.

It's the XJ220 van from the TopGear UK vs Australia episode, right?

On Top Gear? Haven't seen that one.

So the history behind this is Jaguar built it as a development mule for the XJ220, underneath the body is the full chassis and running gear of the XJ220, it's even faster to 60mph, top speed is apparently 170mph.
