Richard Hammond's Jaguar restoration hasn't gone to plan

2020 was the year of the Jaguar for Richard Hammond, with the DriveTribe founder kicking off the restoration of two classic Jags - and XK120 and an XK150. The '150 is very nearly finished, but a mechanical gremlin has stopped this beauty from hitting the road.

    Restoring a classic body to modern standards is a bit like giving your grandma a facelift and a bikini. Her beauty is in her age. She's not supposed to look pretty like a teenager.

    Richard Hammond’s automobile restoration hasn’t gone to plan because he is trying to restore an automobile, a task which mocks and humiliates and destroys plans.

    I’ve always thought of the 150 as the prettiest of the range. Our local rally club has a 210 class: two-wheel drive, ten or more years old. We’d be happy to let Hammond enter... but he’ll need to restomod a cage into it...

    Look on the bright side, he can still sit in the driver's seat and make the growling, screaming, whining noises an 8-year-old boy might make when trying to mimic the sounds of a race car going like the clappers. On a serious note, that XK 150 is looking absolutely beautiful.
