Top Gear

Post by Hell Razor5543 » 04 Aug 2013, 21:03

I have just watched the last episode of the current series of Top Gear, and (while recent episodes have gone downhill) it made me proud I am from the isles of Great Britain. The last item really made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

Even Citroen made it on there too! Apparently the clutch in the DS3 WRC was made in Britain...

This season of TG bar a couple of episodes has been quite entertaining... I howled at the caravans last week and was impressed with the the Land Rover Sport...

Interesting about what's still made in the UK but in a feat of programming that only the beeb could do it was immediately followed by a tedious programme on how the Jerries have completely dominated the UK car market and thus completely nullified it :twisted: Balanced and impartial programming I guess.. :roll:

For the first time ever yesterday I drove a German car and was rather impressed. Mind you it was a Merc SL55 AMG :lol:

Im still not convinced by the new SSRR. Fair enough its a hell of a lot better than the old model but its not based on the same chassis as the FFRR as its got no chassis! its a monocoque and they are very different items..

I'm going to try and grab Das Auto on iPlayer as its something that looks good to watch.

I would loved to have been at the Mall the day they did that display though :) would have been even better in person, and i bet they could have charged 50p/head for people to nosey about along the sides :)
