One more reason why we love Jeremy Clarkson: he makes no bones about junketeering:
Jaguar had made the most of the three-day trip, too, providing helicopters to take us into the mountains and Ribs to take us round the coast. They provided choirs every time there was an embarrassing silence and at night they provided telescopes so we could look at Saturn.
They d also provided 16 chauffeur-driven long wheelbase XJs to ferry us around when we were drunk. And 45 XKs for when we weren t. Although by the time I got there 700 journalists from around the world had been through the programme, so there were only 39 left.
We still disagree with him that the new XK is "pant-wettingly pretty" though...
