“He usually likes his flashy, trashy, modern stuff, but he likes my rather beautiful e-type.”

The journalist then confessed to James’ threat: “And his threat remains that he will simply deposit a piffling amount of money in my bank account without telling me.

“But with a note attached saying ‘in respect of e-type’,” he continued.

The writer added: “And then precisely a year, take me to court, to sue for his jaguar because the bank details will show.”

“He paid for it, where is it?” The host continued.

Richard then confronted James as he said with his game face: “It’s not going to work James!”

The TV star added: “You’re not getting it and you’re not getting the 150 either.”

Richard concluded his competitive speech, in true Top Gear dialogue: “If I were to go after another Jag, it would be a mark 2.”
