Episode 6


Quentin’s choice this week might have some people spitting their tea/burgundy/real ale out.

Yes, it’s the MGB. But stick with it – there are many reasons why this is a very enjoyable and shrewd acquisition that’s currently undervalued. And the history of this car is, as ever with Quentin, an interesting one. The show sends Alex Riley to Le Mans to stalk a childhood hero – armed with his Scalextric set, and Bruno tames a Jaguar E-type lightweight, or as he calls it, a ‘total beast’, around the circuit – a remarkable racer, one of only 12 ever made and worth a million plus. Be careful Bruno…

Then there’s Jodie’s trip through Italy, which sounds glamorous, but actually involves sleep deprivation and very little by way of comfort. She’s not complaining, though. Would you, if you were invited by Jaguar to drive a 1953 XK120 on the famous Mille Miglia?
