Richard Madeley joins Cars UK as a guest reviewer
So we thought it might be fun to get some well-known faces to spend a bit of time with an interesting car and get their feedback. A sort of ‘Stars Test Cars’ occasional feature. So we set to work – pulled some strings and begged some favours – and the first of our ‘Stars Test Cars’ writers is broadcaster and journalist Richard Madeley. Yes, he of ‘Richard & Judy’ fame.
It’s not terribly well known, but Richard is a bit of a car fan on the quiet. And he’s an even bigger Jaguar fan. His car history includes a love affair with MK II Jags (yep, he’s even older than me – just!) and he currently drives an XJ. So what better car to tempt Richard with than a nice shiny Jaguar XK Convertible? So – with Jaguar’s help – that’s exactly what we did, and Richard has been out playing with the XK Convertible, having driven down to Cornwall from London for the week.
Poor little soldier that he is he spent the week feeling a bit under the weather after three weeks bobbing around on the English Channel filming a new documentary for ITV. But that didn’t stop him from having fun with the XK, and he’s busy feverishly scribbling away to let us know exactly what he made of the latest iteration of Jaguar’s XK Convertible – the one with the 5.0 litre lump.
So check back on Tuesday for the Jaguar XK 5.0 Portfolio Convertible Review. With Richard Madeley.
