Top Gear

14 giorni fa

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.

I bet with a longer runway and modern tires. The Jaag would do 210+ without any problems.

200 on the speedo is at least 20 mph off the mark. And him missing gears on the first try. This must be a joke.

The amount of hysteresis that would be present in that 30 year old Jaguar speedometer cable, he was probably doing 30mph.

I am gonna be real with you: This ain't Top Gear. These fellas could make a great car show but not TopGear. This feel so much like a bad acting, fake Clarkson, Hammond, May Top Gear when in reality it's not even comparable to that...

Did the confirm it just by the car's speedometer or an a proper timer? The speedometer is not always accurate with older cars especially. Sometimes they can be off by as much as 10mph.

Don't we need to down shift while trying to brake? No doubt the car's brakes are capable enough, yet I think engine braking would help, being in the proper rev bands of course.
