The modern-day successor to a MK2 Jag, the latest XJ could add a bit of sophistication to the getaway. A luxurious interior and a decent size boot makes it both plush and practical. Thanks to Jaguar’s latest smartphone app, you could even remotely start the car ensuring the engine is running upon frantic arrival.

Go for the new XJR575 to give this cat claws. A 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine with 575 hp (422 kW) should give you more than enough grunt to outrun the boys in blue.
