Remember Jezza’s bargain Mercedes? Here's the latest - unfortunately it's still not moving

If you clicked on Hammond's 850CI gallery, you'll know that we've been scratching around the V12 GTs that Jeremy and Richard bought on the show.
The scheme was thus - find something massive and awesome and luxurious for the same price as a very dreary Nissan Pixo. First one to break down loses. Which Jeremy's promptly did - one of the coil packs expired, heralding the familiar glow of a CHECK ENGINE light.
Nevertheless, we thought we'd see what the rest of it was like. Against our better judgment, we twiddled, probed and pressed everything we could find to validate its operational worth. Mercifully, no vajazzles were encountered.
And it performed remarkably well. Apart from the whole CHECK ENGINE thing... Click on to see what we found.
