    What do you think was the best car that was reviewed in Top Gear? It can be from Top Gear USA, Australia or the UK series. Mine's the Mitsubishi Lancer EX reviewed by Richard Hammonds and tested by the Stig (I think?). ;)

    Oh, man this is a hard one. Either the 458 Italia or the Corvette Z06 (Clarkson), but there are so many good ones. :D

    The Clarkson review of one version of a Renault Clio, which he says sounds like you have Darth Vader in the boot.

    No, it was a red pick-up truck that they drove into a tree, left on a beach as the tide came up, dropped a carvan on it, hit it with a wrecking ball, set it on fire AND finally put it on top of a high apartment block then blew the building up.......AND IT STILL WORKED.

    It was Ireland But I love that "review" as well! As well as his one for the Ford Fiesta

    *looks at green car*

    Ariel Atom. That is a slick kit car.

    Not really sure if it counts as a car review, but Hammond's review of the Carver was awesome. Mainly because the Carver tilts. I still want one of those.

    Has to be Hammond reviewing the Lamborghini Aventador. What he says about it being tame and unlike the Miura is true.

    Pretty much anything by Jeremy Clarkson. He makes Top Gear.

    I have a question. Was Top Gear USA cancelled or will there be another season?

    That's what I heard too. Still, the UK one is the funniest of them all.

    Only a Toyota Hilux can kill another Toyota Hilux.

    They should have a head-to-head challenge with them.

    I saw an episode of Top Gear USA and it was poop. Didn't even know there was an Australian show either.

    Anyway all the reviews on the show aren't that great, I say this because they date horrifically and after a year or so there's pretty much no reason to rewatch them.

    Now the CHALLENGES on the other hand... Indestructible Toyota Hilux? Driving to the North Pole? Driving through the Amazon Rainforest? Amphibian cars 1 and 2? Sure these are usually on cars that are either specialist or second (or even tenth) hand but the 'Best driving road in the world' episodes showcase the cars in ways that standard reviews never do.

    For instance, the first (I think it was the first) best road episode, where Clarkson has a Lambo Gallardo (IIRC), May has a touring spec Aston and predicably Hammond has a Porsche showcased those cars brilliantly. It also showed that cars with permanent racing suspension, no air con and no opening windows aren't exactly ideal for road trips through the south of France in summer... The American road trip episode where Hammond had to buy his own brand new Dodge Challenger because the company bottled it was also great.
