HOW DOES JEREMY CLARKSON FEEL ABOUT THE STIG - TOP GEAR 10th december
clarkson on the one show, for more go to ---
-- Jeremy Charles Robert Clarkson (born 11 April 1960) is a British
broadcaster and journalist who specialises in motoring. He is best known
for his role on the BBC TV show Top Gear along with co-presenters Richard
Hammond and James May. He also writes weekly columns for The Sunday Times
and The Sun.
From a career as a local journalist in the North of England, Clarkson rose
to public prominence as a presenter of the original format of Top Gear in
1988. Since the mid-1990s Clarkson has become a recognised public
personality, regularly appearing on British television presenting his own
shows and appearing as a guest on other shows. As well as motoring,
Clarkson has produced programmes and books on subjects such as history and
engineering. From 1998 to 2000 he also hosted his own chat show, Clarkson.
His opinionated but humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and presenting style
has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints. His actions
both privately and as a Top Gear presenter have also sometimes resulted in
criticism from the media, politicians, pressure groups and the public.
Recently in Australia on A Current Affair he claimed that all he does is
'...get up, write stuff, [have] supper and [go] to bed'.
As well as the criticism levelled against him, Clarkson also generated a
significant following in the public at large, being credited as a factor in
the resurgence of Top Gear to the most popular show on BBC Two.

Clarkson hinted that the Stig as a character may no longer continue on Top
Gear, saying: "Trust me, we have many, many thousands of people queueing up
to be whatever it is we create."
Collins is the second person to play the Stig who has revealed his
identity. Previously another racing driver, Perry McCarthy, played a
black-suited Stig but was replaced by Collins as the white Stig in 2003
after McCarthy also revealed his identity in a book.
When asked who might replace Collins, Clarkson said: "Richard can't drive
and James is too slow. We'll get somebody, don't you worry. Top Gear is
damaged but not out. I'd love to have [David] Cameron do it."

Maybach 62 Test Drive (And Ride!) with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of the 2005 Maybach 62 with Chris Moran
Maybach was one of the world's most exquisite nameplates in the 1920s and
'30s. The original company was founded by Karl Maybach — the son of
Wilhelm Maybach, who developed the first Mercedes.
Some people were surprised when Maybachs returned in the form of two
closely related, all-new ultraluxury sedans. Each posh sedan is filled with
nearly every sort of comfort and convenience feature offered in a motorcar.
Ostensibly a product of DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company,
the modern-day Maybach is actually considered a make of its own.
Maybachs come in two sizes: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length
Type 62. Each model designation indicates the car's length in meters: 5.73
for the Type 57 and 6.17 for the Type 62. Special features include
electronic braking and an Airmatic Dual Control air suspension.
A rearview parking-assist camera is available in the 2005 model. Standard
equipment now includes Robbe & Berking beverage flutes and a handcrafted
Dunhill Collection umbrella. Standard Sirius Satellite Radio includes a
Only one or two Maybachs per day are built at a state-of-the-art facility

According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.
Maybach says a primary goal was to deliver an "entirely new definition of
Twelve body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes may be
specified. Bi-xenon headlights are standard. The regular-size Type 57 is
225.3 inches long overall, uses a 133.5-inch wheelbase and rides on 19-inch
tires. A standard power-closing feature pulls the door shut from the first
As many as 100 items inside the Maybach are trimmed with exotic woods.
Buyers can mix options with the immense standard-equipment list in numerous
combinations. Available accessories include a luggage set, a sterling
silver champagne goblet, a humidor, a golf bag and a fluffy travel rug.
Buyers may choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of
wood. All four standard seats are heated, and active seat ventilation is
Occupants can luxuriate in reclining rear seats. A television with a
9.5-inch TFT flat screen includes a DVD player. Interior features also
include four-zone climate control with two air-conditioning units, a
refrigerated compartment, a cordless phone with two handsets and a
21-speaker Bose Dolby sound system. Each sedan also has the Tele Aid
emergency communication system and the Comand integrated control system,
which are available for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the 5.5-liter V-12 produces 550 horsepower and 663
pounds-feet of torque. It teams with a five-speed-automatic transmission.
Maybach claims the Type 57 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.2
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact
airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.
