Top Gear: Ferrari 458 Italia

Watch it, enjoy it. I’ll keep the commentary short, but I will just say that I can’t remember seeing Jeremy THAT excited behind the wheel of a car. And I’ve seen every Top Gear episode, and bunch of his DVDs. The car must really be THAT good…


Top Gear: CLK 63 AMG Black

Probably one of my all time favorite Top Gear segments of them all. Not necessarily for the car (as awesome as the Black is!), but for the whole concept and theme of the piece. The music, the images, the presentation. It’s just great!

Jeremy sums it up best:”When was the last time you just got up and went for a drive? Not to anywhere, not for anything. Just a drive.” and  “This is brilliant. No phones. No Kids. No interruptions. It’s just me, in my little metal shell. Time to think, time to work stuff out“. Personally I take drives like this all the time. And I think more car enthusiasts would benefit from doing it as well. Because the whole point of cars is driving right??

Top Gear: Reliant Robin

One of the most hilarious segments on Top Gear. It was seriously funnier than anything last series. Proof that, no, Top Gear has NOT lost it just yet!

Top Gear: Prodrive P2

Another Top Gear blast from the past because, let’s be honest, you can NEVER have enough Top Gear.

Man I love the way the P2 sounds. If I had an Impreza, I’d do all in my power to get my car to sound like that (minus the squirrel mincing). Also, don’t you think Subaru should build something like this?? Seriously, it can’t be that hard, hell make it a joint venture with Prodrive. The Subaru Prodrive P2. I know it’s possible, do it!! Make it now!

Ford Fiesta: Clakrson Approved

A lot of friends are thinking I’m an idiot for having a fascination with the new Ford Fiesta, and always question why I love it so much. Well much apart from the fact that it looks X-times better than the Honda Fit, and the all important three words used to describe it (read: fun-to-drive), it has the MOST important endorsement that is relevant to me: Jeremy Clarkson likes it. And is there any better reason to buy one?

Top Gear 14×5

The fifth episode of the 14th series of Top Gear ran on Sunday. The main car feature was the Noble M600. And while the car set a blistering time, I feel the same way about this car that I do about the episode as a whole: meh.
