Even Tom Cruise was interesting but then maybe that was because he was sitting beside Cameron while Jeremy was having his 'Something About Mary' fantasy.

I came across this limited edition Veyron on TopGear via FB. This is the only one in the world!

I've come to the conclusion that both the UK version and the American version are too short in episodes per season. But then again, it does look like it takes a big chunk of time and money to do each episode.

I don't know how the U.S version is funded but the BBC is publicly funded so that's probably why the series is so short. But at one point there were two per year and it's dropped off to only one, which at only 6 episodes a year is too little IMO.

I've never seen the American version of the show, I only watch the Brit version (probably because I never knew there was an American version!) Sits near the top of my all time favourite shows.

Yep, it was on The History Channel. IMO I thought they tried to be just a little too much like the Brit version and should have done there own thing. Overall, it was a good show if you don't judge it against the UK version. The UK version is definitely better.

Apparently Top Gear is going to be censored (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/02/11/top_gear_us/) for the US market!
Well, OK one tiny portion that caused a bit of a stink over here.

Wmd that be the Mexican analysis? I've been to Mexico and found it couldn't be farther from the truth. Apart from the blanket with a hole in it. Although I didn't see any Mexicans wearing one as a coat.

I watch this on BBC now and then but I hate that it's in SD, not HD. You can't appreciate how beautiful some of these cars are in SD.

I watch it in HD! BBC HD ftw!

Funny thing is that the channel is labeled BBCHD, but THAT particular show comes out in SD. I don't get it.

That's weird because it's filmed in HD!

Nice to look at but I thought she was a bit dull - Jezzer was definitely :x though.

And he said something along the lines of, "buying anything except an M3 is like buying a First Person Shooter for the PS3 that isn't Call Of Duty". /:)
He obviously hasn't played it then!

So its fair to say that 'both BMWs and Call of Duty look good, but both are usually full of wankers!' :D

I want me a combine with snow plow and flame thrower attachments. Could they possibly put one in a Call of Duty game I wonder?

I cannot believe they waited until week 2 of the new series to take this beauty for a spin...

McLaren P1

It is considered to be the long-awaited McLaren F1 successor utilizing hybrid power and Formula 1 technology. It does not have the same three seat layout as its predecessor. The design of the headlights is also very similar to the shape of the McLaren logo. Just like the McLaren F1 road car of 1992, the McLaren P1 is a rear-wheel drive, mid-engine design that uses a carbon fibre monocoque and roof structure safety cage concept called MonoCage, which is a development of the MonoCell used in the current MP4-12C and MP4-12C Spider upgrade that came out in early 2012.


I will mention no more in fear of spoiling it for others, but Clarkson just about creams himself taking this around Spa.

Can't wait to see this! I almost creamed myself taking it around Spa as well, and that was just in a video game!
