Mid Week Match-Up: A Grand Tourer

Sorry Matt LeBlanc, but the current BBC Top Gear show is just unwatchable and the Grand Tour (starring those three nincompoops from the old Top Gear) is seriously good telly.  For this week's Mid Week Match-Up, I'd like to challenge our readers to find a car for Jeremy Clarkson, James May, or Richard Hammond.

My choice is a tribute to The Grand Tour Season 2, Episode 6 "Jaaaaaaags" -- this 2004 Jaguar XJR offered here on eBay for $5,500 buy-it-now located in Canoga Park, CA.

What would you pick for the three not-so-wise men?


  1. How about a Fast and Furious remake with an orange Supra a green Eclipse and a Black Charger?
    They would have to dress like early 2000s street racers and do F&F challenges.
    Would be great

    1. That is an amazing idea, I'd watch it!

  2. We could get this for Hammond:

    Actual Rocket Car for sale

    (What? Too soon?....)

  3. Also for the Hammster, who seems to love the crazier one offs, this STI swapped Beetle that sold last year.

  4. Here's a 1961 Mk IX for Mr. May in Nampa, ID for $18K

  5. I love the design of the XJR... I'm scared of the reliability of the XJR...
    The price looks great... but still scared...
    Wrong coast for me, but that would be a great excuse for a road trip with my wife, and in style and comfort... but scared...
