Two standard Jaguar XJ All-Wheel Drives have returned successfully from a
2000-mile round trip journey to the coldest city on earth.
On this wintery December day the thermometers in Dawson City recorded -49ºC (-56F),
reportedly making the gold-rush town in Canada's Yukon Territory the
coldest town on the planet - so cold in fact that if you threw a cup of
hot water in the air, it instantly turned into a mini blizzard, freezing
before it hit the ground.
Perhaps the greatest North American
drive in the depths of winter, the aim of the journey was to drive from
the Yukon capital Whitehorse to the Arcytic Circle, a
point of perpetual sunset in the shortest daylight week of the year.
