Jeremy Clarkson vs 'The Brutus' Bomber BMW (TOP GEAR)
Relive the insta-classic TOP GEAR moment from Monday's episode when Jeremy Clarkson recreated the Battle of Britain - and faced off against a car called "The Brutus," a flame-spitting retro BMW. "The Brutus" combines a 46-liter BMW v12 engine, originally used to power a bomber plane, with a chassis from a 1906 New York fire engine - and brakes that, "well, they exist only in the imagination of the madman who built this thing!" Watch as Jezza takes this "extraordinary creation" out for a spin. "Almost immediately, 'The Brutus' began to spit hot oil into my face, and that was just the start of my problems!" Will he be able to steer this beast of an auto? Or will "The Brutus" conquer our TOP GEAR hero? The lamest of cars, the brightest of stars, the dimmest of hosts - all light up a brand new season of TOP GEAR.
