The Tax the Rich crew has a knack for indulging in automotive fantasies and capturing it all on video, such as a tug-of-war battle between two Ferrari F50s, drifting a Ferrari Enzo on gravel roads and even powersliding a Rolls-Royce Phantom on a field of wet grass. This latest video features a Jaguar XJ220 and a kid with an iPad, who somehow is able to control the old supercar with the Apple product.

No, there's no app for that (yet), and we lied - the boy isn't actually controlling the car - but it sure is nice to see the XJ220 in all its turbocharged, six-cylinder glory doing donuts and sliding across a grassy field. It jolts us to see the old Jaguar - capable of 217 miles per hour and once described by Jeremy Clarkson as having no brakes and massive turbo lag - thrown about like a rally car, but then we never imagined anybody would abuse a Rolls-Royce like that either. We'll continue to leave the high-stakes antics to Tax the Rich - we're just glad somebody had the guts to behave so badly in such a valuable machine. What else were they made for?

Be sure to check out the video below, if you have a pulse.

      Shows how great the Jaguar X220 still is. Same guy who posted up the Rolls Royce drifting in the paddock.

      I wonder how the finances work. You film and cause 15,000 quid of damage to the car. Or is everything clear-bra'd and the undercarriages taped up before the hooning. The possibilities.....

        The XJ220 is RWD... For someone who obsesses over AWD, you really don't know your cars...

          Don't be so harsh on him, he just read the Wikipedia article too fast.

      Has anyone determined the owner of this YouTube channel? I'd love to know who owns these cars and where these videos are shot. There has to be a rather interesting back story.

      XJ220 is a marketing failure. They also don't hold their value. they were suppose to arrive with V12 & AWD. JAG switched and put a V6 and RWD at the last minute. EVERYBODY THREATENED TO SUE THEIR ASS- GOT DEPOSITS BACK.

        If you were one of the people who put down a deposit, I understand why you would feel butt-hurt. The XJ220 is still an awesome car, despite not being the way it was initially planned and announced.
