770mile road trip in the 550bhp Jaguar XJR to the French Alps.


Robert Orr says:

Great review! Orange callipers would tie it in perfectly with your other added highlights…

For those that were asking who is he? Well he is called Harry Metcalfe, he is the founder of EVO Magazine launched back in 1998.
Great video and I have subbed.

BK studio live says:

I really enjoyed this video.

cgtpotomac says:

Harry, thank you for the comprehensive review. I have just sold my F-TYPE S convertible and would like to purchase another Jaguar. Only thing is that I cannot choose between an F TYPE R coupé and a XJR. Any feedback?

Cameron Johns says:

Love these videos and as a car lover from Tasmania, Australia it’s fantastic to see these cars move across Britain and Europe.

Pierre M says:

Great video!
These roads are perfect for testing such sport cars. I am living 1h30 from Val d’Isère. Appreciate you are coming here to ski.
My choice will be an XE with AWD more safely in winter.
Thanks for your videos, my prefered: the road trip in Morocco with the Testarossa.

Holy moly what a car. I agree with everything you say so much. Purpose built car, not compromised.

john paterson says:

Harry, usual excellent video and an underrated gentlemen’s carriage. Jaguar now seem to have the right mix of heritage and modernity.
The only ancestor I can recall is I believe a xj12 in the early/mid seventies, with a 6.4 litre V12 (!), run by Jaguar Experimental dept.

Harry, loved your latest fiat 500 vid, just thought I’d revisit this one too! Brilliant videos, brilliant relaxed style and your gorgeous home, makes one think you’ve done a bit of alright for yourself!Love the Cotswolds, reminds me of Home a little further north when I’m in the UK.I have an XF 3.0 V6 Supercharged Petrol in Qatar where I work and my god do Jaguar build a car these days!Just wish I had the lovely bendy roads we have at home to drive it on though.

Larry Smith says:

Jesus Christ, man. When in the hell are you going to spend a few pounds on a fucking microphone? You can’t be that cheap and/or lazy. The in-cockpit audio on all of your videos is horrendous.

zwodziarz 8-] says:

I wonder: where I live, leaving your car turned on on the street for the time longer than 1minute is illegal. Leaving it switched on is also illegal so the climate remote control hmm is a bit tricky

sirboom says:

PZero Nero tires are all-seasons, not snow tires. You’d need Sottozeros for winter tires…

Elgallo Deoro says:

are parts expensive?

Kaitlin O'Leary says:

Not crazy about the shape. But then I love the old Jaguars and how they stand out. My last love was 2009 XJR.

Fergus Wright says:

Great review!

Buggs says:

I like the matching paint schemes. You just need a Rover 200 BRM to go with them..

There was actually an XJ40 XJR and all straight 6 XJR’s were available as a manual.

Weasel4Fun says:

35 mpg?! Wow that is unbelievable.

Andrej Kostovski says:

over 30mpg in a supercharged v8 is just amazing

Benjamin Sloan says:

Harry failed to mention he works for Jaguar. This is just a crumm commercial!

Allison Burwell says:

Hello sir, great video! There is nothing better than the British gentleman like you taking a pride representing his domestic supreme ride with the automotive heritage. I like Jaguars better than RR, Bentley or Aston Martin.

warak anda says:

really awesome..

Andy P says:

Hi harry why are you not producing the same amount of videos as you used to? This videos almost 3 months old..

Karl Stafford says:

ok. but not a patch on a M5
