Richard Hammond drives the icons
Hamster has a go in the most expensive Jaguar ever made – the £413k XJ220

The engine sounds good, kind of old school and basic, and the all-round independent suspension makes a reasonable enough job of keeping everything under control - helping the rear wheels cope without recourse to computers and electro-magnetic dampers. Best of all, make no bones about it, is the boost gauge. I love a boost gauge me; I'd fit one to a coffee table if I could. This one is mounted with a cluster of dials in the door and looks like something out of Buck Rogers.
