Watch Idris Elba Track a Jaguar XE S During His 746-Mile Road Trip to Berlin

You might know him from The Wire, you might know from The Wire, or you might know him from The Wire. Either way, regardless of how you know actor Stringer Bell Idris Elba, what's important now is that he partnered up with Jaguar to drive a brand new 2016 XE from London to Berlin in three days. Elba was on his way to the European launch party for the XE, where he was set to DJ (the press release says he made his playlist on the go in the car, but... nah). Elba was actually able to try out two versions of the XE during his 746-mile journey to the German capital, thanks to a brief stop at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit in Belgium. There he met up with former F1 driver Martin Brundle and took the XE S, which has a 340-horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine, out for some wet hot laps.

Jaguar is claiming that the XE will be extremely fuel efficient. Elba points out during the video that he was getting about 65 miles to the gallon (funny considering he's British and is driving overseas, where they would be measuring in liters and kilometers). Check out his thoughts on the car and the trip above.
