18 Φεβ 2021
211 763 προβολές

The Jaguar XJ220 - so named for its target top speed of 220mph - was capable of reaching 217mph* in period. But after nearly 30 years since the first model rolled off that factory floor, has it still got it? Well Freddie Flintoff's hell-bent on finding out as he takes the XJ220 to over 200mph (indicated) on a runway.
*Nearly, Jag. Nearly.
