He might not be as good at dodging controversy as he is in dodging road hazards, but Jeremy Clarkson sure loves his cars.

“Most of the time I adore the Jaguar XJS, but the last time I drove one it was raining, I had a headache and a cricked neck and I was trying to reverse it down a mews at night. And I absolutely hated the [expletive] thing,” Clarkson told media.

Years owned: 1999 to 2004
 Engine: 4.2 litre
Transmission: 5 speed, manual

“It cost £22,000 (Dh120,478.92) and, no, I didn't spend extra on a warranty. As it was designed to go from Adelaide to Darwin, it should be able to manage the school run without exploding in a maelstrom of cogs and wire,” Clarkson said.

Ford GT
Years owned: 2005 to 2010
Engine: 5.4 litre
Transmission: 6-speed, manual

“Leaving the Top Gear studio one day, the immobiliser refused to un-immobilise itself. So instead, I went home in a rented Toyota Corolla...sorry Ford I have to ask for my money back,” he said.
