Car Review of the Nissan Leaf by The Stig (Ben Collins)
Some say he's a former SAS soldier, Others say he's from Bristol. All we know is, He's called the Stig. Oh wait, He's just Ben Collins.
2 things Top Gear hate in the same video: Electric Cars and Ben Collins.
Ben Collins or The Stig reviews the Nissan Leaf.
Ben Collins - The Man in the White Suit
The Stig gets his kit off and reveals how he came to be Top Gear's iconic
racing driver and so much more - including what it's like to thrash an
Aston Martin DBS, train for the Army and face the terror of Jeremy
When the Black Stig disappeared off the end of an aircraft carrier in 2003,
we were introduced to The White Stig. faster. Stranger. Harder to keep clean. And
ever since, millions have wondered -- who is The Man in the White Suit?
They're about to find out.
Ben Collins caught the car the bug young, kicking his dad's boss in the
balls for not giving him a company Jag. This was the attitude that
eventually led him to spend seven years sharing a cabin with Jeremy
Clarkson's underwear, James May's PhD thesis and Richard Hammond's
hairspray. Because he is The Stig.
Now he tells all about life inside the iconic white helmet. What it's like
to guide a blind ex-RAF officer around the Top Gear track; pit a drug
dealer's Mitsubishi Evo against a Trojan tank; set a Vauxhall Monara
against Chloe the dancing Ninja; and race double-decker Routemasters
against bendy buses. Not to mention all the inside stuff on how the show's
amazing driving sequences are made.
He also reveals how he got to be there -- setting
a Dunsfold lap time faster than
Michael Schumacher's. Breaking records with the best of the best at Daytona
and Le Mans.
It's an awesome story, told by an amazing man.

Nissan LEAF Test Drive and Review
Nissan LEAF Test Drive & Review-
Green Energy News had the recent pleasure of test driving the brand
spankin' new, highly-anticipated zero emission vehicle (ZEV) developed by
Nissan, dubbed LEAF - or Leading, Environmentally Friendly, Affordable,
Family Car. Mark Perry, Director of Product Planning for Nissan North
America, talks about the vision behind the Nissan LEAF and touches on it's
eco-friendly features, cost/price, battery/charging information, and
The LEAF we drove is a pre-production prototype... basically the production
model. This is NOT a "mule" or the VERSA "shell" which was making a tour
across the US earlier this year.
Design: Smooth lines, aerodynamic, and pleasing to look at. The LEAF might
not be the most eye-catching car on the road, but we feel like it will
appeal to most consumers in the compact car market. We saw it as a cross
between a luxury crossover SUV (think Lexus RX 350), a Toyota Matrix, and
the Nissan Versa.
Performance- The 107 HP (80kw) motor puts out 206 lb-ft of torque which is
readily available at 0 MPH! We were more than surprised with the amount of
pep the LEAF showed off the line. At moderate speeds (approx 45 MPH) the
LEAF had NO problems passing other vehicles with minimal efforts. Towards
the end of the video, you can see the LEAF accelerating into a right turn,
reaching speeds of almost 50 MPH from a creeping start with ease. The LEAF
is responsive and fun to drive. Is it a sportscar... NO! Is it more fun to
drive than a traditional compact... BY FAR! Handling is wonderful- the
lithium ion battery pack is center mounted under the vehicle creating even
balance and sturdy handling. Try it for yourself... this thing is FUN to
Price- $32,000 might be a little steep for us, but after $7,500 in federal
rebates/incentives... the LEAF is right up our alley. With California
giving us an additional $5,000 in rebates, the LEAF would be a steal at
just under $20k! Considering the Chevy Volt is priced around $40k before
rebates/incentives, and DOESN'T qualify for the additional $5k rebate in CA
due to it's gasoline engine/generator, the LEAF looks like a solid deal.
