Brundle’s Jaguar XJR vs Jetman

Watch Formula One legend Martin Brundle drag-race the new Jaguar XJR against the fastest man in the sky, Yves ‘Jetman’ Rossy in the Dubai desert.

Brundle had the new all-aluminium 550PS, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 Jaguar XJR at his disposal while Rossy was strapped to his 2m-wide fixed wing, powered by four Jet-Cat superchargers.

The Jaguar was helped off the line by innovative All Surface Progress Control (ASPC), a high-tech system that automatically limits traction loss on the rear-wheel drive car at low speeds on slippery surfaces, maximising grip in tough conditions.
