What about P.J. O'Rourke? He's an American 'humourist' I suppose, not a comedian, who has been into cars in a very big way. Used to write for Car & Driver and a few other things. He's written quite a few stories about cars, including a short story entitled "How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink.".

One of my favourite quotes from his book is-

"And so one of the Car and Driver editors came up to me and said 'So P.J., I heard you bought an old Alfa.'

'I did, yes.'

'Well it just so happens I have an old Alfa repair kit- a truck full of money which follows you around everywhere.'"

Someday I'll own an Alfa Romeo Spyder.
Thought of some more:

Jerry Springer
Alan Rickman
Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant together
Alan Moore
David Bowie (I know this is completely impossible, but it's worth dreaming about :))
Brett and Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords

Ha! +1 for you for Ricky and Steve together!

I'm normally not in favour of people plugging their latest movie on SIARPC, but I would love to see Bruno on the show. :p

Dave Mustaine (of Megadeth) would be a good guest, as would Steve Harris of Iron Maiden. Dave and Jezza would really get along and it would be hilarious.

I would like to see if Jason Statham can handle the mighty Lacetti. Nicolas Cage could be another interesting guest.

Focus 1.6 Zetec: unoriginal but good
Agree with everyone who said
Hugh Laurie - funny, self-deprecating and a speed freak (altho more bikes than cars) and
Eric Bana - he was a well-known comedian in Oz before he got "Hollywooded" and
Rowan Atkinson - maybe he could do it as Blackadder if he's too shy? ;)
John Cleese - who needs a reason?
Would also like to see:
Hugh Jackman, (on TG or anywhere else, yum!) Dame Kelly Holmes, Dame Edna Everage, Charlotte Church, Lily Allen, Russell Howard, John MacEnroe.
To Khaki who said PJ O'Rourke - you have taste, and i agree he'd be brilliant, but i'm not sure enough people know who he is. I think he popped up in 1 of Jezza's programmes didn't he?
