Top Gear: The worst car…in the world (+video)Fri, 02 Nov 2012 00:00:00 -0700
With Top Gear on its holidays until 2013 because the schedules are full, and Hammond playing Bond, May & Clarkson do the worst cars…in the world.
It’s a strange Autumn on BBC2 when we don’t have a Top Gear series at 8pm on a Sunday evening. But that’s because the schedules are full with everything from Strictly to X Factor via Celebs in the Jungle.
But that doesn’t mean its a completely Top Gear free world. We’ve already had Richard Hammond on the box doing 50 years of Bond cars, and now the Top Gear franchise has found a way to keep Jeremy and James busy, and bring in a few bob too.
Clarkson and May have been out playing to make the Top Gear ‘Worst car in the history of the World’, which unfortunately is a DVD and not a Top Gear TV special. So you’ll have to stump up £13.75 to watch it.
Jeremy and James trek off to Jeremy’s home county – Yorkshire – in search of the worst car ever, with candidates from Ford, Alfa, Rolls Royce, FSO, Porsche, Saab et al, with a Yorkshire Stig putting an M5 through a Gymkhana course and much debate between our hosts about their own car history.
But it’s not all about crappy cars as Jeremy and James have managed to grab interesting stuff to play with like a Ferrari 458, Mercedes SLS and Lexus LFA.
So if you want to keep the petrolhead that holds your heart happy this Christmas, you’d better get out and grab Top Gear’s worst car ever DVD as a stocking filler. Because this year’s Top Gear Christmas Special is in February.
Or at least it is according to Clarkson.
