I like the Jag, too. I read an article about that car recently, but can't recall which of my car mags featured it.
My favorite Supercar is the 288 GTO, but I also liked the Lamborghini Countach and the BMW M1.
Then, there's the Pagani Zonda PS, and more elusive (to the states anyway) Cizeta-Merider V16T, and Jiotto Caspita. Was Panoz a supermodel? Maybe not. Oh, and Aston Martin had the Bulldog, but I don't know if it went into production. And, although you state the yellowbird blew it away, the Porsche 959 might have been considered a supercar at the time. The Porsche 930 Turbo was real hot in the states (still is).
It was a great time for the European Supercars to come out! America lost the muscle car era which was destroyed by gov't regulations and restrictions as well as the high price of gas. For awhile, styling died, 120 MPH speedometers were replaced with 85 MPH speedos, 4 cyl.'s were everywhere, and I'll gingerly say the cheaply built (at that time) Japanese imports were ripe for the American market, and they flooded it well.
