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 Citroën 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.

Top Gear 09e06s 1\4
Main review: The new BMW M5, priced identically with the Mercedes-Benz CLS. Jeremy admits disappointment, and points out the list of failures in great detail: confusing electronic settings for everything, annoying sat-nav, jerky gearbox, uncomfortable ride, ugly exterior, non-canceling indicator, and disappointing appreciation of speed with the 400 horsepower (300 kW) standard setting. Though the review then appears to be over, Jeremy presses the M button and the engine delivers 507 metric horsepower (373 kW; 500 bhp), the suspension stiffens, and the gearbox goes to a default race setting. In this form, it is spectacular to drive, but very fragile- it had to be mended before a lap could be done. In the hands of the Stig, it does a lap time of 1:26.2, putting it slightly faster than the CLS, but worse as an all-rounder. Review: Clarkson drives three hot hatchbacks, the VW Golf GTI, RenaultSport Mégane, and the Vauxhall Astra VXR. Clarkson thinks the Astra is too powerful for a front-wheel drive car, resulting in disastrous understeer. Torque-steer always yanks the front wheels to the left, and the extra power is useless as it is slower than the Renault. Clarkson likes the Mégane, but would still buy a Golf instead, reiterating his decision in Series 5, Episode 6. Challenge: Hammond and May play a game called "Road Test Russian Roulette", which involved them having to test cars while driving the cars' owners (which are supposed to be drunk) back to their homes. Hammond tries to be polite and avoid telling people that some parts of the car are rubbish, instead talking about spices and that part of the car. Clarkson tells him that he's cocked it up because of this approach. Challenge: A new world record was set for the number of complete sideways rolls in a car. A stuntman managed to make a Ford Sierra estate complete 6 rolls - and survived. Star in a reasonably priced car: Chris Evans who tells Jeremy about trying (and failing) to take old people to the shops during his five-year hiatus, Lap of 1:47.9 Greatest Driving Song of All Time: Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now"





Top Gear 10e06s 4\4
Review: Clarkson tests the BMW 535d four-door sedan, the first diesel car to be brought to the Top Gear test track. He finds that, compared to the petrol variant, the diesel is quieter at motorway speeds, it has much more torque, it's slightly cheaper, and the weight of the heavier engine doesn't affect the handling. The petrol version is more responsive, more fun to drive, and it beats the diesel on a track. The Stig takes the 535d to a 1:31.8 time. News: The presenters discuss the Proton Gen-2 with dual driving controls, the Vauxhall Astra 2-seater convertible, a tear-proof map booklet, and the Audi A6 allroad quattro concept car. Challenge: Hammond returns to Iceland (on the basis that the convertible test in episode 8 had been very boring, and he was not allowed to come home until he had filmed something interesting) to race a modified off-road vehicle against a Snowmobile over Lake Kleifarvatn. Greatest Driving Song of All Time: A retrospect of the five finalists. Star in a reasonably priced car: Big Brother host Davina McCall tries to invite Clarkson onto Big Brother and admits she owns an eco-unfriendly Range Rover, she also tells about her shoes and how the Stig said they were slowing her down and made her do a lap barefoot. Her lap time is 1:57.1. Review: May drives the Bentley Continental Flying Spur in Dubai, as he can think of no other place to respectfully test the "New Money" car. May defies his "Captain Slow" nickname by bringing the Bentley to 180 mph (290 km/h) on roads specially closed off for him; he likes the car and finds that the addition of two more doors and a bit of re-characterization has moved it successfully away from the Bentley Continental GT. Jeremy despises the new four-door Bentley, calling it "the most dreary styling" he's ever seen. Star in a reasonably priced car, take two: Mark Webber complains that the wet conditions would hurt him, despite Clarkson's reassurances that he could've gotten 4 seconds faster in dry. His time of 1:47.1 is disputed after Clarkson suggests that he could have gotten a 1:43 in dry conditions. Afterwards, Clarkson gives Webber a shirt proclaiming, "I AM THE STIG." Review: The Trio reviews several off-road toys, including a quad Bike, the 8-wheeled Argo Cat, a Hovercraft, and others in a bid to find out, which one of them is most fun? After destroying a field by driving quad bikes and many other off road toys (including the Argo Cat which can float, as proved by Jeremy), Clarkson slips two discs in his back after crashing the hovercraft.

Top Gear 02e07s 1\4
Main review: Clarkson reviews the Porsche Cayman, which is cut short by the director's expression of disgust at Clarkson complaining about mostly everything about the car (which he bought as an investment, to Jeremy's own disgust). Clarkson was so sure that it was merely a Boxster Coupé that he refused to call it anything but a Coxster. The Stig posts a 1:26.7 for the Cayman. News: Hammond shows one viewer's attempt to get directions from Nottingham to Bideford, while avoiding the M5 motorway via the RAC plc website. The route took her into the Atlantic Ocean, into France, and crosses Ireland twice. Documentary and Review: Hammond explains the history of British racing green, with a run in a Bentley Blower, and a 1903 Napier and reviews a recreation of a Vanwall F1 car. Star in a reasonably priced car: Ian Wright discusses why footballers like David Beckham, Wes Brown and John O'Shea would buy a Lincoln Navigator. Lap of 1:47.8. Challenge: Hammond and May play with life-size radio control cars made from real cars. After each had a turn at the controls and in the passenger seat, one rode in the car while the other attempted to navigate it through a quarry floor course, and keep a caravan from being crushed by a wrecking ball. The two then raced against the British Under-15 Radio Control Champion on a new course, ending with them trying to jump another caravan, and (of course) failing. Back in the studio Clarkson shows off a full size radio controlled car that flies. He flies it over peoples heads in the studio. Challenge: Clarkson, in an Audi RS4, competed against the climber Leo Houlding to see who could make it to the top of the Verdon Gorge in France. After he loses the hillclimb challenge he challenges the climber to descend faster than he does, whereupon the climber base-jumps to the bottom. Clarkson thinks the RS4 is a landmark departure from the usually tepid fast Audis, and hails the lightweight, high-revving V8 as one of the best engines ever made.





Top Gear 11e06s 4\4
Main review: Hammond tested the Vauxhall Monaro VX-R and was taught how to drift in the same car by D1 Grand Prix driver Yasuyuki Kazama, despite Kazama not speaking English (he had to teach using hand signals). Kazama then took the VX-R and showed Hammond how to drift properly. News: It is revealed that Vauxhall has discontinued the distribution of the Monaro VX-R, making the former segment irrelevant. Challenge: James May tries to re-create the Top Gear theme tune using car engine noises. Ranging from the supercar Enzo Ferrari to a classic Chevrolet Corvette to modern cars like the Suzuki Swift and the Mazda RX-8 and even a construction dumper, May's song is purist as he refuses to use computer effects to make it sound better, with results that fail to impress the others. Clarkson compares it to "a fat talentless shop assistant farting." Star in a Reasonably Priced Car: Timothy Spall talks about his movie roles with Tom Cruise, and manages to take the Liana to a respectable 1:51.1 time, despite going into the last corner too fast and swiviling around on the last straight. Greatest Driving Song of All Time: Rankings: (WINNER) Queen - "Don't Stop Me Now" Golden Earring - "Radar Love" Meat Loaf - "Bat out of Hell" Steppenwolf - "Born to Be Wild" Deep Purple - "Highway Star" James presents Roger Taylor, Queen's drummer, with a trophy. Review: Clarkson reviews the Ford Lightning, and considers the truck useless in England. From claiming it's made from old shovels and the interior is rubbish to getting something stolen from the bed of the truck, Clarkson closes his argument by mentioning how these trucks often appear to crash in police chase videos. Cool Wall: Clarkson and Hammond could not be bothered to put up the BMW 3-Series on the cool wall, finding it too dull to be worth the time. Review: Hammond participated in the Pamplona Bull Run in Spain, where he was shoved into the path of a bull by a participant, before a segment in which he road tested the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster.





Top Gear 07e06s 3\4
Main review: Jeremy drives the first and only non-terrifying TVR, the Sagaris. James contends that despite his great praise for the vehicle, Jeremy would rather have a Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG because he's a coward. News: Jeremy has slipped two discs, which he describes as 'repetitive oversteer injury'; Proton have announced the Savvy, as a 'My First Lotus'; two new Mustangs, neither of which will be coming to the UK; Mercedes-Benz have styled a car like a fish; the Top Gear Survey. Versus Challenge: Clarkson races a Fiat Panda against a marathon runner around the London Marathon circuit during the morning rush-hour. After early success, the car gets bogged down in traffic and never recovers. Greatest Driving Song of All Time: Deep Purple's "Highway Star" Star in a Reasonably Priced Car: Justin Hawkins recalls driving across America in a Reliant Regal. Lap time of 1:48. Cool Wall: The DB9 Cabriolet is cool in case you own one and it's called over a tannoy; Richard takes advantage of Clarkson's injury to place the Maserati Gran Sport in cool and the Peugeot 1007 in uncool; the Panda is cool because it's a 4x4 and annoys ecomentalists; the Range Rover Sport is uncool because a reality TV star wants one; the two disagree over the SLK55 — Hammond says its too fiddly and the two use large audience members to fight by proxy — Hammond's wins at first, but then Clarkson intervenes and it goes in sub-zero. Time Challenge: To celebrate the Transit's 40th birthday, Hammond goes to the Nürburgring to see if Sabine Schmitz can fulfill her word and do a lap of the infamous track in a Transit van in less than Jeremy's best lap in the diesel S-Type of 9:59. Sabine fails on the first try, so tries again after streamlining and putting the van on a drastic and radical weight diet, and achieves a 10:08.49 the second time, coming just 9 seconds short of the time Jeremy had set the previous year. Back at the hangar, Sabine is invited to take over oversteering duties from Hammond for the next series, being 'cheaper', much better looking, a better (quicker) driver, and most importantly taller, as well as speaking better English.

Top Gear 01e07s 3\4
Review: Richard Hammond addresses the fictitious complaints of viewers that want a mid-level supercar in the £235,000 bracket. The answer: the Ascari KZ1, a British supercar (although designed by a Dutchman with an engine from the BMW M5). The Stig then takes the car to a 1:20.7, below the Porsche Carrera GT. News: The three look at the Mini Cooper Estate Concept from the Tokyo Auto Salon. Jeremy Clarkson mocks BMW's attempt to make a "quintessentially British" car by making references to the Hitler regime and the German invasion of Poland. This episode also marks the beginning of jokes about a rumour that Richard Hammond had his teeth whitened. Main review: Hammond, May, and Clarkson travel to the Isle of Man to compare the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the BMW M6, and Porsche 997 Carrera S and choose which of them they like the best. The 23-minute film includes the presenters fishing, discussing the merits of the cars, and timed runs by The Stig along the A18 road commonly used by the Isle of Man TT motorcycle racing competition. James and Richard preferred the Porsche but Jeremy still said he preferred the Aston Martin. So the overall winner was the 997 by a 2 to 1 vote. Star in a reasonably priced car: Trevor Eve shows Jeremy sign language he learned while making Children of a Lesser God, lap of 1:48.0 but the Stig believed he could have gone faster if the wheel hadn't broken off the Liana. Poll: How reliable is your car? According to the poll, 10 of the bottom 13 cars were of French origin. The top 3 were all Japanese: the Lexus RX (3rd), the Lexus IS (2nd), and the Honda S2000 (1st place).





Chrysler Crossfire Review (2003)
Brendan Coogan reviews the Mercedes influenced Chrysler Crossfire. It boasts a 3.2L V6 engine producing 215bhp and sits on the same chassis as a Mercedes SLK, this helps it reach an admirable top speed of 148mph and a 0-60 of just under 6 seconds.

Review: The Aston Martin DBR9 racer is given a race around the track. It sets a very quick time of 1:08.6, but can't go on the board because it is not a production vehicle & it was on slick tyres. Challenge: A race from Heathrow Airport to Oslo. Clarkson chose the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren because it was both extremely fast and completely comfortable. This choice seemed to vindicate the SLR as the better real-world car over the Porsche Carrera GT. He embarked on a tiring 1,320-mile (2,120 km) drive via the Channel Tunnel, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark, the Øresund Bridge, Sweden, and into Norway. Hammond and May took a flight to Newcastle upon Tyne, and then a ferry to Kristiansand. Initially, it looked hopeful for them as they planned to complete the trip by speedboat; however, in heavy seas, they broke down in two speedboats and had to complete the journey by bus. Though Clarkson had spent a few hours napping in Denmark, he beat them by several hours due to the setbacks. News: Nissan Micra C+C, the car for the man who "likes musicals". Also, Hummer have produced aftershave and cologne for "inbreds." Star in a Reasonably Priced Car: Jeremy discusses A Picture of Britain and Question Time with David Dimbleby. Lap time of 1:52 Greatest Driving Song of All Time: Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild"
