And puts it through some rather unusual tests...

Snow. Just one flake of it needs to fall on Britain and the whole country grinds to a halt.

On the track, Jeremy compares the new Audi RS 5 to the BMW M3. Amber Heard is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Jeremy attempts to drive the new Jaguar XJ faster that the Earth rotates [that's a maximum speed of 1,038 mph - 1,670 k/mh].
