Yes brilliant episode with a nice mix of stuff, wow that Stig must be good with the Caparo 1.10. ... can not quite remember the exact tenths. 2,000,000 mini cabs in London next week. Hammond went for it on the bike didn't he? Simon Cowell was a good SIARPC too.
I loved the congestion-charge-woman-on-the-phone's sort of interested "oh" when James told her his Merc was a 5.5 litre, that really tickled me.
The London camerawork in general was stunning as usual, I love London anyway, and they did brilliantly when Clarkson raced the runner in the Panda, and again, they've done some brilliant stuff. Top down as Clarkson belted through the Thames barrier was awesome, and the stuff around the eye and the dome were cool.
Caparo segement was serious and very funny at the same time and also very pretty to watch, I didn't like the comparion of an F1 car though, it's blatently a lot more like a Le Mans prototype (but I'm just biased towards sports car racing!).
Even Cowell was entertaining, it was a comical clash of titanic egos!
Oh and it was rather cool to see that a yellow Corvette owner had joined whoever it was that took his Lambo to find good driving roads. Didn't see any sign of a nice Vette down the side of a hill though!
The Aston vs the jet guy seems so long ago now! But I remember it being rather entertaining!
*heads to the WTS forum to find out what the epic track was as Clarskon was gunning it towards City Airport...*
Just an incredibly great episode. I think an episode like this is so much better then the crap we got last week. Nice car reviews, good guest and a useful use for cocking about. (everybody living in a big city wonders at some point, what is the fastest way of getting around). Thanks again top gear team, for this great end of the weekend
I so want a GIF of Stig looking at the paper and then throwing it away. Pure genius. That was a very entertaining episode. Can't wait till next week already. As for the Caparo...I'll save myself 170 grand and by an Atom. And kill myself in that instead.
