Top Gear 08e06s 1\4
Main review: Ferrari F430. Jeremy claims it "about the best car I've ever driven". The convertible version of the F430 is just as pin-sharp to drive and comes only one-tenth of a second slower on the track. He can find nothing wrong with either version, but advises that unattractive people should avoid the soft top, so as not to create embarrassment.
Challenge: Clarkson, Hammond and May take some convertible versions of existing coupes to Iceland. Specifically the Chrysler Crossfire, Nissan 350Z and Audi TT. Clarkson likes the Chrysler because as a soft top it's attractive, comfortable, and cheap. Hammond likes the Nissan for its power. May likes the Audi because of its build quality and four-wheel drive. Two of them find the TT to be too dull, two of them find the Crossfire to be rubbish, and two of them find the Nissan to be too camp and idiotic. They cannot decide which is best, because each one is flawed.
News: The boys discuss NISMO (with May expressing his hate for the R34 Skyline GT-R). A heavily modified CitroÃ«n C2 is also discussed and shown in the studio.
Star in a reasonably priced car: Tim Rice has a Jaguar, but he and nobody who works for him know which one. Lap of 1:52.7.
Greatest Driving Song of All Time: Meat Loaf's "Bat out of Hell". In addition, this song has been ridiculed by the presenters.
