Jaguar XJ 2010 video review: So good, you'll expense it twice

Ever wondered what would happen if you replaced your car's speedometer with a 12.3-inch computer screen? Jaguar has -- hence its new XJ

Ever wondered what would happen if you replaced your car's speedometer with a 12.3-inch computer screen? How about if you fitted an information and entertainment display on which the driver and passenger can watch different programmes at the same time? Jaguar certainly has -- hence the creation of the XJ, its brand-new executive sports saloon.

The company tells us it'll stroll right up to the BMW 7 series, Mercedes S-Class and Porsche Panamera and hawk a metaphorical loogie right in their posh, metallic faces. It tells us it'll handle better, wow you with more technology and make the nickname 'Two Jags' something to aspire to. Never ones to ignore fightin' words, your men in the field -- Rory Reid and the bloke who keeps his camera steady -- jetted off to Paris to blag a ride.
