This is a photomode thread for Top Gear related pictures. Anything related to the reviews and videos from the television show! Do your best to try and stay close to the show (cars, color, aero parts, camera angles, etc.) I am also looking for people who would like to help out with some pictures, I'm hoping to try and recreate some of the Top Gear episodes. It doesn't have to be just the Top Gear track! I shall make a list of requests and plans:

Tips (ish)
-You could use SSR7 for the Top Gear races like DB9 vs train or SLR vs boat.
-Of course, use the Top Gear test track for the reviews and power laps, unfortunately, the cones can mess it up, see if you can get them out of the shot.
-Use tracks that the Top Gear crew's been to, for example: Laguna Seca with the NSX or Fuji Speedway for the GT-R review
-Some cars have been modified for example, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ360 had a front splitter, which is a aero part in GT5
-Try to get the color as close as possible
-Do your best to do the same camera angles

Possible recreations
(So far at the top of my head)
1. STI vs Evo X (I just bought a red STI, anyone got a Evo X with the front aero splitter?)
2. Tesla Roadster
3. GT-R review at Fuji
4. R8 5.2 FSI vs Corvette ZR1
5. Ferrari 599 review
6. Fuel saving race (LP640, R8 4.2, SLR McLaren, DBS (Only the DB9's in the game)
7. XFR vs M5
8. ISF vs M3
9. LP560 vs 911 GT2 (Could use the...RUF RGT?)
10. Evora review
11. Z4 vs 370Z (No new Z4 though )
12. LFA review


I can't list all of the challenges and races, I'm just listing ones that GT5's car list has in common with the Top Gear episodes. Here's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Gear_challenges

Stig's power laps count too!

Post your Top Gear related pics! :mrgreen:

Here are some of mine. I've brought this over from a thread I made in GTplanet.

To bring back this rather dead thread. I took pictures of Jeremy's own SL55 AMG! Same color.

Not exactly the thing you're looking for but I did try to recreate the photo locations as seen in the actual Zonda R review segment. Also remade the Top Gear intro with GT5 footage. :p

Wow, I would have been completely fooled by the intro. That is stellar.

From 16x06, the Ferrari F40 vs Porsche 959 (There's no 959 in GT5...)





The Ferrari F430 review from 6x08:
