TOP GEAR THREAD

[Sunday's @ 8pm]

17 top moments of Top Gear telly

Image
17. DB9 versus Eurostar
An early Top Gear challenge - Clarkson takes on Hammond and May in a race to Monte Carlo: him in an Aston Martin DB9, them on public transport.

Image
16: The 'sensible' Fiesta test
Jeremy responds to a reader complaint about us not doing proper car tests by landing a Ford Fiesta on a beach and getting chased through a shopping centre...

Image
[img]15.%20The%20race%20to%20Oslo[/img]
One of TG's classic big challenges - can JC complete the 1,320 miles to Oslo in a McLaren Mercedes SLR before James and Richard make it by plane, boat and bus?

Image
14. TG’s British Leyland Favourites
Apparently, British Leyland made some good cars. This clip tells a different story.

Image
13. $1000 USA Challenge
Jeremy, Richard and James narrowly avoid being murdered on their big road trip across southern USA in $1000 bangers.

Image
12. The Ashes, TG style
We don't know a lot about cricket, which could explain why our version of The Ashes involved rally cars, drifting, an utterly ridiculous Transit Van, and a barbeque.

Image
11. The Reliant Space Shuttle
Arguably one of the most infamous TG films ever - Richard and James decide to enter the space race using a Reliant Robin. Can it fly? Also, can it return safely to Earth?

Image
10. James, a plane and an automobile
Heart-stoppingly relevant battle between Clarkson in a Veyron and the other two in James's little plane. Who can get a truffle from Italy to the top of the NatWest tower quickest?

Image
9. The amphibious cars
The team attempts to make amphibious vehicles from normal cars. Clarkson's Toybota, Hammond's Dampervan and James's Mayflower all end up getting rather wet.

Image
8. Two-wheeled road trip across Vietnam
The boys swap four wheels for two and plough across, into and over Vietnam.

Image
7. The non-future for British cars
In a surprisingly poignant film, the boys look at the demise of the British sports car. There are also a few mild disasters.

Image
6. Reliant Robin rolls repeatedly
Jeremy drives the three-wheeled Reliant Robin. Many, many crashes happen.

Image
5. Clarkson drives to work
At five, what might just be the funniest film TG ever made. Jeremy takes a Peel P50 - officially the tiniest production car ever - into the office for a meeting. Literally.

Image
4. Jeremy reshapes his face in an Ariel Atom
Jeremy's face-rearranging Ariel Atom drive reveals just how ridiculous this car is.

Image
3. The boys enter the Britcar 24-hour race
Using homebrewed biofuel, Jeremy, James and Richard take a BMW 330D endurance racing.

Image
2. James (briefly) breaks records in the Bugatti Veyron SS
Captain Slow belies his nickname and sets a 259mph production car world record in the 1,183bhp Veyron SuperSport. For about twenty minutes.

Image
1. Drive across Botswana
This is the one where the boys go to Africa, buy a car each for £1,500 then drive it across the country. Jeremy gets a Lancia Beta, James a Mercedes 230E and Richard an Opel Kadett. Called Oliver.

Er... No. I know it's gooseberry fool but it's so entertaining! It's like Arnie films. Awful but amazing, at the same time.
