- '04 Skoda Octavia vRS
I'm surprised they've gone down the GM route at all given JC's opinion of the brand although that counts for nothing when product placement and money are involved.
Very true, although if this paragraph from the TG.COM article is to be believed...
With that in mind, earlier this year Top Gear assembled a range of likely candidates at our top secret Reasonably Priced Car testing facility in Surrey (at the end of Stovolds Hill, just off the B2130 near Cranleigh) and got The Stig down to give them a good thrashing. We also had some of our production team there to poke around the interiors, rigorously making sure they were big enough to accommodate a roll cage and all the minicams we rig up to capture our celeb guests? reactions. Slowly but surely we rooted out the cars that were too slow, the cars that were too twitchy, the cars that wilted under pressure and eventually we found what we believe is a car that?s just right.
...they simply chose the car that was the best 'fit' for their purposes.
Still won't make me buy one.
Well, judging by the amount I see on the roads, it didn't exactly work for the Liana or the Lacetti either. :lol:
