Chris Harris on... Ferrari F40 & Jaguar XJ220 | Top Gear: Series 29

Chris Harris on… Ferrari F40 & Jaguar XJ220 | Top Gear: Series 29

In the latest episode of Top Gear, the lads took some 80s and 90s supercar heroes for a spin around Yorkshire. Chris was in the legendary Ferrari F40. Freddie was in the 217mph Jaguar XJ220. And Paddy was in a Lamborghini Diablo… for a bit. So here’s Chris taking us through the the F40 and XJ220, explaining what makes them so special and which one he prefers.

    What's the story behind the altered 747? Is that a movie plane? What's the reg#?

    I prefer the modified XJ220 with the nonpopup headlights but the car is overall a beauty, same with the F40 (preferred the racing version.)

    What was the 3d car they were supposed to drive?

    I still don't understand why people the F40 is beautiful. It's Ok. The front end is very average and uninspired

    Short clips like these remind me why I'm so glad Monkey got the gig with Top Gear. Was always his calling.

    Yes the F40 is lovely but it doesn't compare to the majesty of the XJ220.
    If you complain about the V6.. then do you have a problem with the Lotus Espirit with it's 4 banger? or 911 also with 6cyls
    The XJ was raw, untamed and ready for a fight… but has a beautiful sophisticated look to it.
    In the end, to each their own – but It has always grinded my gears that the F40 gets all the fan fair because it was a "Ferrari" while other monsters of the time like the Bugatti EB110e, Mercedes CLK GTR Street Version & Porsche 959 were overlooked

    I'm well aware the XJ220 concept had AWD V12 which would have been insanity if that was actually made.. but they couldn't get the desired horsepower out of the V12 so they opted for the turbo V6 and at the time no transmission could withstand the torque/power for the AWD system… and yet even still it pushed passed to get the world record – and not only that there was an even faster version that was faster than the Mclaren F1… just one problem, they only built 6.. not the ~25 needed for the minimum qualification needed to be considered a production car. The "S" model produced nearly 700 Horsepower and had complete carbon fibre body – Designed by Tom Walkinshaw with TWR.

    TL;DR – people will always pick on the negatives… but if you truly look at any supercar of the era, it won't take you long to realise the F40 really wasn't anything special compared to the others, even perhaps rather sub-par. I will of cause say again the F40 is a lovely car but the other offerings out there (especially the XJ) were that much more sweeter!

    I love the enthusiasm Chris Harris has for all things cars. It’s refreshing and he appears to be a true “car guy”.

    Sounds like Paddy and Chris are getting along like a house on fire, lol

    I'm 49 this year, and was a teenager when both these amazing cars was unleashed on the world. And I'm so thankful, so amazed, still in awe of these two monsters. Ferrari F40 shook the world when it was released, but it was a Ferrari and with Enzo having passed away not long before, it was expected to perform as the epitome of the dreams of the old man. Jaguar? Totally out of left field, came out of nowhere, totally blindsided us. Those in the know, didn't share, and we were, ironically thankful.
    It was a time before the internet and the mass media of today.
    And I remain thankful to have had the joy of being a part of the world and seeing something totally new.
    And not be totally jaded about it 6 months before it's grand unveiling.

    F40 is cool but the xj220 still looks 20 years newer. How can he say the xj220 hasn't aged well, the f40 looks like it's made from Lego. If Ferrari had built the fastest car in the world with a V6 I'm sure Chris would say it was amazing, because Ferrari did it.

    Chris Harris is the premiere motoring journalist / driver of his age. Many others may equal or indeed better his analytical comprehension of a car’s capabilities, but none conjoin that skill with his driving ability and bucket-load of enthusiasm for “things on four wheels”. 👍🏻

    F40…..epic machine 😎 I still have that Fastlane cassette recording with Mark Hales & Becky Adam. 911 club sport, Audi Quattro and Saph cossie. Thing is these days, I don’t have a sodding tape player to play it on 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Welcome to Top Gear, we stole it from other people and barely mention them in the show! I don't know why our viewers declined dramatically! Maybe because you are trying your ass off to be a bit funny but it's not working, is it?

    If one had to go it had to be the Diablo.

    I wonder who will die first Freddie or Paddy, you have to admire their bravery but it seems to be ahead of their talent and that's a dangerous combination.

    Really should just make these 2 as the top gear hosts. Honestly this short clip with Chris just being himself is better than any of the new top gear episodes. Bring back Chris Harris on cars with the GOAT Neil and just rename it top gear!

    Its really unfortunate that the F40 was made to share filming with that cat, IMO.

    Paddy is the work experience bloke? Sounds about right.

    always this "a friend of mine comes along and he said, you don't wanna drive it?"… where the hell did you people get friends like this?? None, nobody has even the chance to own a nut of a supercar. Damn… my poverty sucks. :/

    A grown man, should never, under any circumstances, wear one of those cheesy smartwatches. But if he does, he's not entitled to judge the style or aesthetics of anything.
