    I can't imagine what Jeremy was thinking in that shot where he looks straight at the camera...

    My two profound thoughts on this are:

    1. That's a tall Chinese guy talking to James
    2. Look at the colour combination on James' outfit after he puts his jacket on. Brilliant!

    Thank you.

    This news has made me very happy indeed. Now all they need to do is do a special there and I will explode with joy.

    Shanghai to Beijing is a hell of a long way to drive. I wonder if they came along with the camera car or they actually filmed close to Shanghai? If so, there's gonna be lots of disappointed local Top gear fans in my office, looks like we missed them

    As for the cars, this should be fun. Chinese cars are utterly and completely dreadful. Imagine Hyundai's from 25 years ago, but far less reliable. Also, some offer DVD ssytems with screens for the driver! And yet, you still get people buying the copies and then sticking actual bmw badges on it...

    All the same, the local press can't slag them off for the steaming piles of crap they are, so they end up commenting on how nice it is that this or that fisher-price knob doesn't come off...

    I spy with my little eye an Austin Maestro...

    Wonder if we sold them the design or they actually bothered to copy it...

    A version of the Austin Maestro with a Montego front end is built in China under the Etsong Lande nameplate.

    Actually know a guy who built a Maestro with a Montego front end, called it the Monstro, can't say I was a fan...

    You have just got to love the Great Wall Coolbear!

    1. Breakes all the rules of car naming.
    2. It looks just lik a Kia Soul too.

    Wonderful!

    Actually I hope this will remind the "old" new top gear, where James and Jeremy went to find a decent Korean car. Maybe China will be the new Korea (as Korea is the new Japan)?
