"Celebrity Tester" Idris Elba Flogs Jaguar XE Around Spa With Help From F1 Legend

But will he be the next James Bond?

It started in London, and Idris Elba’s road trip to Berlin has taken a diversion in order for star of The Wire and Luther to push the new Jaguar XE to its limits at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit in Belgium. Formula One racing legend Martin Brundle was standing by to scare the crap out of the British actor by taking him out in a top-of-the-line 340-hp V6-powered Jaguar XE with the racetrack coated in ice, snow, and fog.

After surviving that, Elba takes the “big-boy” car out for a spin on his own, before continuing his 750-mile journey to Germany’s capital where he will DJ at a launch party for the new Leaping Cat.
