The ONLY Top Gear Thread!

Top Gear is a motoring show on BBC. It first started in 1977 as a conventional motoring magazine show. Over time, and especially since a relaunch in 2002, it has developed a quirky, humorous style. The show is presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and The Stig, an anonymous test driver.

Talk about all things Top Gear!

First.

And sorry to say this but Jeremy Clarkson is kinda faggish in the show IMO.

Other than that I like it!

GO TOP GEAR!!!

Best Motoring/Hot Version is much better if you don't mind subtitles.

Once, they had this V8 blender on the show. They blended raw meat and a brick and some other things into this soup. It was pretty cool.

i only seen the Ford Fiesta test.. It was funny.

One of the tests:

Can it out run the baddies in corvettes through a shopping center?

it was so funny watching them drive through the shopping mall.

Also the bit where they guy took the ford fiesta onto the battle field at some place with the boats and stuff and the guy said "Would you look at that? The smart grenades fit perfectly in the cup holder!"

Tehehe. Funny. Must watch that another time.

Best test:

Comparing girls getting ready to a night out to a team of Rally mechanics replacing all the moving parts on a car.

Guess who won.
