Hillclimb Shootout: Aston Martin Vantage N430 vs BMW M240i vs Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport

In one of our most ambitious video projects yet, we worked with the city of Cape Town to close an incredible road in the farmlands beyond the city. It's always been one of our favourite pieces of tarmac to test cars and now we had it all to ourselves.

We lined up 8 high-performance cars, fired up our very own race-ace Ashley Oldfield and staged three races - this is the third head-to-head featuring the BMW M240i with M Performance Parts, the Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport and Aston Martin Vantage N430.

In a battle of the rear-driven coupes, we have the outsider in the form of the BMW M240i, with performance parts. The bad boy Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport with its crackling exhaust pipes and dropping looks. Finally, the old-timer is back in the form of the Aston N430 - an enhanced (again) Vantage with a V8 growl that will have the flesh on your arms jumping for joy.

Who will be fastest on the up and down-hillclimb? The result is a lot closer than you'd expect.
