Way to go Ferrari. Way to act like a bunch of Italian children.
Porsche agrees to let the 918 run a test lap. McLaren agrees as long as all three are customer cars so that Ferrari can't bring a tuned car like they have been known to do for power tests. Ferrari won't agree to let them test a car unless they're bringing it straight from the factory and to make it worse, tthey say that anyone who lets Top Gear test their customer car won't be allowed to buy a new Ferrari. Way to go, children.
Nobody in the UK would ever buy the Corvette, apart from Hammond obviously.
James trainers again.
I died of boredom during the news.
I thought we were getting a p1 vs 918 vs la fer road trip?
Fuck me, Olly Murrs. Really? I would rather drink hemlock than see this cunt.
Yay a James and Jezza special. They have the best segments.
Why not the 1.9?
The 407 coupe looks nice.
Hmmmm, not great.
Solid if unspectacular up until the final film (Peugeot), which I think is one that will split the audience. I found it pretty hilarious myself though.
Hoping that Ferrari and McLaren will come to their senses at some point. I mean all three are sold out so frankly it doesn't matter what order they come in, but I think Ferrari and McLaren are too worried that the 918 will win.
This was going to be a borderline 10 out of 10 for me. Couldn't really fault it, but the Peugeot thing was something I didn't expect. Thought it would be a love story to the great Peugeot's, but instead it was reminiscent of the CUV caravan challenge from two years ago, bringing it down to a 7.
I could understand the three carmakers wanting their own test drivers driving, or even wanting to go to an impartial track (since the P1 was developed in part at Dunsfold), but the ridiculousness that Ferrari is pulling is just absurd and childish, and hopefully they lose customers if they don't come to their senses.
Major kudos to Porsche for agreeing, without caveat, to track test their car, even knowing full well that it's likely going to lose. This makes me more interested in buying a Porsche than the other two (if I could ever even afford one of the other two).
Weakest episode of the series so far for me.
The Corvette vs Porsche with Hammond was surprisingly good, so was James Ferrari segment, but the news was quite bad and even though the Peugeot segment had some funny bits it was mostly cringe worthy.
I thought it was overall rubbish. The Peugeot bit was just stupid pointless stuff full of Top Gear comedy.
The guest was Ok. I personally like Olly Murs, seems a nice guy. Seen some people have a go because he's an "X Factor" loser but sold tons of albums and singles, toured with Robbie Williams and One Direction.
Anyway, gone off topic. Even though I am a car fan, I don't really like most "super cars".
Not that keen on Ferraris and Porsches are just Ok. Although I do love the P1.
That meant was no interested in all the beginning third.
I thought it was going to be a big test of the three super cars - La Ferrari, P1 and the Porsche but I think that's just in the magazine??
I have realised I only properly like it when they do a challenge or race or some "adventure" in some other country.
