Jaguar XE Project 8 Euro-tour part 3. Episode incudes a guide to some of the best roads (principally the B500) in the Black Forest region of Germany. I also discuss likes and dislikes regarding my Project 8 after 3 years of owning this 4-door super-saloon.
The Jaguar Project 8 was declared to be a 200mph 4-door saloon, making it one of the fastest ever devised. In this video, I take it to a derestricted German Autobahn to find out if it really can go 200mph.
2021 Beaujolais Nouveau was released at one minute past midnight on the 18th November and we took the Jaguar Project 8 down to the Beaujolais region of France to meet up with Laurent Savoye, a well regarded wine producer in this region.
The Alfa Romeo GTAm is a 540hp £156,000 4-door saloon with monstrous performance and a 190mph+ top speed but the £150,000 Jaguar Project 8 has 600hp, a 200mph+ top speed and is the fastest 4-door saloon around the 'Ring. But which is best to drive on a British B-road? Let's find out..
Silverstone Auctions held their three-day sale up at the NEC Classic Motor Show. Friday 12th November was the first opportunity for the public to view the cars going under the hammer but I did a preview video beforehand, to give you a guide to the cars (and bikes) being auctioned over the weekend.
My 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow restoration is finished. With it being ULEZ exempt, is it the perfect car to take into Mayfair in London? Let's find out..
Lotus Emira special. I visit the Lotus design studio to find out more on how the Emira was created, then experience it flat out around the Lotus test track before going into the configurator suite with Lotus head of design, Russell Carr, to finalise the spec of my Emira.
The new 2022 Range Rover has finally arrived and in this video I compare the new model to my 2021 Range Rover 400e PHEV. What are the key differences between the two of them, how have I got on running a PHEV Range Rover and after running 9 Range Rovers over the past 30 years, am I tempted to buy the new one?
The Lancia Fulvia 1600 Zagato now has perfectly shaped new bodywork thanks to the amazing metalworking skills by Adrian and Sam at Prestige Refinishing, who have created beautiful new body panels out of flat sheet using mainly hammers and an English Wheel.
My 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow is temporarily back in the garage after its recent repaint, which many of you spotted on the last HG video. Here, I explain why it's back and what's been going on over the past few weeks.
This '65 Porsche 911 has been subtly modified by Sports Purpose to appear to be a regular 2.0litre, SWB 911 but to be nothing of the sort. Powered by a high-revving, Tuthill built 2.2litre, 200bhp engine, this £350,000 classic sounds brilliant and could well be the purest driving 911 of them all.
I had the Ferrari Roma in to review a few months ago but the weather was horrible at the time and it really compromised the review. What I really wanted to do was to take it on a road-trip and, fortunately, Ferrari said yes so we set off for the Idle Rocks Hotel in St. Mawes in Cornwall, to see what the Roma is like on a proper road-trip.
My Jaguar XJ V12 Coupe restoration is moving closer to completion as the engine and gearbox are refitted and the interior starts to come together.
The trip back to the UK in the Jaguar F-Type Project 7 should have been great but it didn't turn out that way at all as we tacked closed roads, gravel tracks and blocked Autostradas.
Part 2 of the Jaguar F-Type Project 7 road trip special starts just outside Calais and takes in 600 miles of Autoroute, followed by some of the best roads in France, including the N85 Route Napoleon, before ending at journey end in Antibes on the French Riviera.
This video is part one of three videos when I take the Jaguar Project 7 on a 2000-mile road trip to the French Riviera. In Part one, I take the P7 to the 2021 Hampton Court Concours and give you a tour round the best cars on show there. Zonda 760 VR, McLaren F1 GTR, Countach, Enzo, LaFerrari, F50, etc.
The Touring Arese RH95 is the latest car to be launched by Touring Superleggera in Milan and had its world premiere at Salon Prive 2021. It uses the Ferrari 488GTB as its donor car and has up to 720ps in Pista spec, giving it wild performance to match its exotic looks.
The BMW Z8 arrived in 2000 and seemed a confused car at the time of launch but now Restomods are all the rage, has the BMW Z8 time finally arrived? Watch the video to find out..
The Porsche 911 GT (better known as the 993 GT2) will always be one of the most coveted 911 of all. Built in very limited numbers mainly for homologation reasons, it went on to dominate the FIA GT2 class during the late nineties. Only 7 RHD examples were ordered in the UK and this is one of them.
The Lancia Fulvia Sport 1600 Zagato is with http://www.prestigerefinishing.co.uk/ at the moment and after all the terrible repairs were exposed (see part 6), Sam and Adrian are now working some serious magic to bring the body back into shape before it's ready to paint in a few weeks time.
Summer 2021 Harry's Garage round-up includes both the GR Yaris and the Jaguar Project 8 on the Goodwood Circuit, why I added a Litchfield suspension kit to the GR Yaris, updates on the Jaguar XJC V12, Lancia Zagato 1600 and Rolls-Royce Shadow restorations. Plus some bike updates too!
The Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2 shares the same size V12 engine with the Ferrari Daytona and was more the expensive Ferrari when both were on sale new back in the early Seventies. Only 525 2+2 were produced, compared to 1,284 Daytonas.

My Lancia Fulvia Zagato Sport 1600 is down at www.prestigerefinishing.co.uk where they have now stripped the paint back top bare metal. I hadn't expected to be back there so quick by I got a call to say the repairs they'd uncovered were so bad I needed to go down to decide what they should do next.. Enjoy the video!
