Top Gear is a British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars, and is a relaunched version of the original 1977 show of the same name, airing since 2002, and becoming the most widely watched factual television programme in the world.Written by
The show is famous for its humorous features. These have included
TV Chef Jamie Oliver making a tossed salad in the back of his Porsche-engined camper van whilst it was being raced around the test track by The Stig.
Car Darts when James May and Richard Hammond were launching cars by compressed air into a quarry and onto a target (which was made juicier by the addition of a caravan in the bullseye).
Russian Roulette when Hammond and May worked for Taxibike and gave comments on the cars they drove their clients home in.
The Toyota Hilux where they attempted to see what it would take to break one of these trucks (it was parked in the sea for a full tidal cycle, set on fire and finally put on top of a tower block that was subsequently demolished) - despite their best efforts the thing still started and moved.
The use of a Boeing 747 at full thrust against a Citroen 2CV and various abuses against caravans.
[about TVR Tuscan 2]
You see, my wife loves this car. She loves the noise and the vibrations and the sense of danger and the way that when you over-rev it, the whole dash lights up like a baboon's backside. Richard Hammond on the other hand, he pretty much hates it. He says its too difficult and too complicated and that all the stitching in here looks like the kind of stitching you find when someone's tried to mend their own shoes.

Top Gear reruns on the UKTV Network (including the Dave channel) have approximately one quarter of the episodes cut out to make room for adverts. They also cut out most un-PC jokes and BBC references. See more »
I don't care what anyone says - the British are the funniest of all. Jeremy, Richard and James are all so different - but this is what makes this show REALLY work. I have fallen off the couch so many times laughing that it is becoming a hazard!
The show is entertaining, informative and hilarious - I would say the only drawback is after watching it you have to go and get in your own car and imagine what Jeremy would say about it. (I can assure you - his comments would not be good about mine!!)
It also doesn't hurt that James May is the most delicious thing on two legs - I just love this British gentleman - he is what men ought to be!
This one definitely goes all the way to 11!
