In my previous post I was waxing poetic about the Jaguar XJ220 and the XJR-15.
Yes, we got it. They're not appreciated or loved.
BUT, after I saw this clip from old-school Top Gear -- before it became a comedy show -- I KNEW I had to share it with you.
While Tiff Needell comes across as a calm, cool and collected driver when he's behind the wheel now, in this clip you'll see and hear a very different Tiff. He's breathing heavy and -- at points -- screaming. To say the XJR-15 is giving him a workout is, well, an understatement.
Frankly, Tiff must of had the biggest balls to get behind the wheels of this Jaguar XJR-15. I mean, just watch the whole clip and if you're impatient, skip to when he's absolutely giving it the beans on the last lap.
That he was able to keep it on the track is just...unbelievable.
Taken from Top Gear 1991 EP 10. Tiff tests the new Jaguar XJR15 at the new revamped Silverstone circuit. Great onboard footage as Tiff goes for it on the last lap!
