Mmm... I'm useless at picking out old cars. Maybe they're trying to find the worst British car (judging by the manufacturers) of all time?

The old cars are for making the TG theme again (I think). It may have been on the Second Life thingy that James mentioned doing it with general noises from cars.

Wet Wet Wet

Top Gear does not give up easily. Unless it's too difficult, then sometimes we do. But when it comes to building amphibious cars we weren't going to be beaten.

Our previous attempt ended in ignominy, near drowning and the feeble sight of James's rubbish water-tortoise Herald technically crossing the line first, but that wasn't going to put us off.

So, each presenter had to build a refined version of their original aquatic masterpiece and then embark on one of our most ambitious challenges yet. If we tell you that it begins in Dover, you might get a sense of how big this is...

Check back every day this week for more previews and video. The new series starts on Sunday October 7 at 8pm on BBC Two.

It would be funny if you see one of us at Britcar. I should've made a final gear shirt.

Is Richard's damper van throwing sparks in that picture? :blink:

As you can see from the picture he has clearly fixed his flotation problems he had during the first try. Another thing comes to mind from that first episode. And that is James's explanation WHY A AMPHIBIOUS CARS CAN'T HAVE KEELS!!!

TGTV preview: 24 hours of Top Gear

There are just three days until the new series of Top Gear kicks off. Our exclusive preview of the biggest challenges and races continues... with our shot at 24 hour racing.

Now, you might remember that in the last series we planted the seeds to grow our own fuel. Well, those seeds turned into crops, and those crops turned into fuel, and our thoughts turned to what the hell we were going to do with it all.

The answer was a simple one: burn it off by driving round and round in circles at high speed. In other words, we'd go motor racing.

Not Mickey Mouse motorsport, either - using a specially prepared BMW 3-Series, and with a little help from His Stigness, we would tackle the punishing Britcar 24hr endurance race at Silverstone.

You might have read the abject and utter fibs in the papers about Hammond's 'crash' during the race, but what you won't know is how demanding, how exhausting and how exciting endurance competitions can be.

That's why you should make sure you watch this one, but don't worry - the actual item isn't 24 hours long.

Check back every day this week for more previews and video. The new series starts on Sunday October 7 at 8pm on BBC Two.

I was speaking to my brother who said that in a London newspaper last week a story reported that Top Gear was filming a race in London from Kew to City Airport, with Clarkson in a speedboat on the Thames, the Stig on public transport, Hammond cycling and James May in a Mercedes ML.

With a quick Google search I couldn't find anything about this apart from one person who also seemed to have read it on this link.

Sounds good

As we take the tyre-warmers off a new series of Top Gear, the wait?s almost over. We?ve got ten whole episodes of excellent-ness ready to unleash on your Sunday night viewing schedule, and you simply won?t believe what Messrs Clarkson, Hammond and May have been up to over the past couple of months.

So, for one night of the week at least, you can banish cookery and home-improvement programmes from your screen and enjoy some good old-fashioned petrol-based fun.

In episode one, we decided to find the finest driving road in Europe. Coincidentally, Lamborghini, Porsche and Aston Martin have recently seen fit to release a brace of new lightweight road-racers in the form of the Gallardo Superleggera, 911 GT3 RS and V8 Vantage N24. To quote Hammond, I think you can see where this is going.

Also in the first programme, Jeremy takes to the test track in an improbably powerful VW Golf, and we put a monarch (sort of) in our reasonably priced car when Dame Helen Mirren comes to visit.

Later in the series, we?ll treat you to a selection of massive challenges and stunts. You?ll see the glorious return of the amphibious cars, in a voyage that makes the crossing of a reservoir look a tiny bit feeble. We put the biofuel we grew last series to seriously good use. And we spend an entire programme in Africa as our intrepid presenters attempt one of our wildly over-ambitious, but cheap, races.

Also: it was massively delayed, gave some of the finest engineering minds in Europe nervous breakdowns, and is too expensive for all but the richest Arab potentates - and that?s just the car. Find out what happened when the Bugatti Veyron met the Eurofighter.

It might surprise you to know we?ve even thrown in some road tests and reviews of the most exciting and interesting cars to hit the road - including the latest Ferrari, Porsche-baiting new Audi R8 supercar and hotly tipped Caparo T1.

So, stop the clocks, silence the dog with a juicy bone and cancel anything you were planning to do on Sunday evenings for the next ten weeks - Top Gear is back!

Caparo T1. Oh yes!

Caparo, R8 & Ferrari 599, great. Wonder if they can do Fiat 500 like Fifth gear did, but properly with maybe some kind of comparison test between 3 cars.
