9/10 for me. James did his first power test (and Stig intro), and the mileage challenge had a lot of laugh-out-loud-moments for me, at least. Awesome Zonda, and we finally saw the Veyron go around the track. SIARPC was a tad boring, though.
Excellent episode. Loved every bit of it!
James tracktest was really good, and funny when he yelled POWWAAHH!
The race was also surprisingly intense, Jeremy making it was also fun. 'Airco on, heat on, all for the sake of burning fuel'.
And finally, the powerlap of the Veyron, I'd expected it to be not the fastest car. I think that it'd do better on a longer track. The spoiler-brake-thing is pretty cool however.
EDIT: Also, today I noticed how awfully long that Lamborghini Estoque is!
Good solid show this week. They got the balance right of cocking about vs cars. No big complaints from me this week. The fuel race was quite interesting in fact, and yes I know Jezza did something like that before in a Audi A8, but the race element adding something different, and I liked different.
I'm not surprised the Veyron was sooo "slow" round the track, it's butt ugly and has to be the World's most over hyped car ever. Give me a Caparo T1 any day
brilliant, felt like tg back to itself, plenty of car reviewing, car news.. hyper super mega cool cars as well as standard cars you may have wondered about owning yourself (i have a 65mpg rated clio dci, but its 100hp, so goes a little tiny bit like stig!) i'd thought about the bluemotion..
BUT, how did they not mention the 4.2L A8's 800mile round trip, its a twin turbo V8, and is even faster than the jag.. so even more impressive, although it was insane that the jag was driven 'normally' for most of the journey
gutted that the veyron didnt top the board, insane straight line grunt, but i guess chucking that weight into corners, as well handled as it may be, just simply scrubs off too much speed.
10/10 for me as my weekend has been damn awful but its cheered me up a lot
I think so too. Take the Zonda vs Veyron to any of the current F1 tracks ( apart from the possible exception of Monaco) eg. Monza, China, Sepang, Fuji where you have a wide track and massive acceleration zones we might see a different result.
