Clarkson - Hot Metal
Everywhere you look, we’re slowing down. With concorde in a museum and even the fighter jets of today would be smashed by the interceptors from the sixties. But what about cars? I decided to find out whether today’s cream can blast the monsters from the power crazed eighties. Are the new breed quicker in a straight line. Do they corner faster. Which are better looking and which can make the best noises. That means the 200 mile per hour Jaguar XJ220 taking on a Pagani Zonda. It means pitting a Mclaren Mercedes SLR against a Porsche Carrerra GT. And it means lining up the new Fort GT with the car that spawned it – the old GT40.
