PS, also shows what a driver Tiff Needell is, wrestling that monster around Bruntingthorpe to within a second of a current 911 Turbo, awesome stuff! Pretty sure it beat the V10 Audi R8, which was tested on 5th gear against the 911, but for some reason doesnt have a time down here...

Hmm, in fairness this was Jaguar's Hyper car against their current top GT model....! Really good showing by the XJ220 though, showing that it wasnt such a bad old crate after all!

What the hell? Is Jaguar evolving at all? Their own 20 years old car can beat their actual top sport model.
