Review: May reviews the Vauxhall Corsa Nürburgring Edition. He praises the handling of the Corsa, but then claims that the ride was awful and continued the rest of his review with the new Fiat Panda, much to Clarkson’s dismay. The Corsa went round the track in 1.31.0 (as fast as a Porsche 911 996 Turbo).

Challenge: Clarkson and Hammond direct a movie chase for the remake of The Sweeney, with Ray Winstone and Plan B. In the process, Hammond resurrects the “car cannon” from the Car Darts challenge and wrecks a Ford Focus ST, and Clarkson, doing a power slide, blows up a caravan and damaging one of the Jaguar XFR. However, their action has made director Nick Love so furious that he sprayed the word “Scum” on Hammond’s Porsche 911 Carrera S and “Tosser” on Clarkson’s Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series. Although the segment was a spoof, the Top Gear production team and presenters assisted with planning and filming the real car chase scene from the film.[3][4] Clarkson, Hammond and May were credited in the film as stunt performers.

Star In A Reasonably Priced Car: Ryan Reynolds does a 1:43.7, faster than Tom Cruise.

Some say…

“Some say he has 50,000 photographs of his own camera, and that 60 years ago this week, he too became a Queen. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”
