[*]Cee'd: What an advertisment. Kia must have paid out of their ass for all the celebs. Nontheless, entertaining and educational, nice car. Chemical Explosion was faked.
I'm not too sure Kia paid for all those celebs to show up. TG could have used their BBC connections for that, and I guess celebs don't mind a couple seconds of free scripted-publicity.
That said: i sure hope that after that pretty much enthusiastic review, they'll soon change the reasonably priced car to a ride that isn't a Kia. Dacia Sandero would actually be a nice choice.. even if it's a bit obvious.
We probably have another two seasons of the Kia as the RPC if we go by the other RPCs, each had a lifetime of about 7 seasons.
Raw versions of metals like sodium and potassium are indeed explosively reactive with water. Check Wiki and YouTube. However, JC may have placed something that looked like chunks of sodium next to the wriggling eel before closing the lid - just in case.Really don't know about the explosion tho, they may have taken some liberties with the special effects department :lol:
...they'll soon change the reasonably priced car to one that isn't a Kia. Dacia Sandero would actually be a nice choice. It might be a bit obvious - but how much more reasonably priced can you get?
As much as James would love a Sandero, I think the "Toybaru" GT86 would be a really good SIARPC car.
I'd love to see that '86/BRZ as the RPC, but I think they'll stick to the compact/fullsized sedan segment. The point is to get stars into a family saloon anyone could own, and put them around the track.
Since the Kia Cee'd's their current car, and the new model's been given a lengthy feature on this episode, I'm sure they'll have to get something completely different for the next RPC in a couple of years.
I think the GT86 is probably overrated and, in all honesly, a piece of overpriced shit that panders to the reflexive petrolheads who insist on worshiping at the altar of rear-wheel drive and manual transmissions because their gods Clarkson and Harris say so and they want to appear oh so desperately fashionable and "correct" to everyone.
