I never said the Biturbo was any good. I'm just wondering whether they do wreck the cars or not.

I'd put my money on this being "we had an argument with the producers about how great Maseratis used to be, so they gave us 10,000 pounds... of our own money... to prove them wrong!" Hopefully they resist the need to script in cars exploding, dumpsters falling ontop of them, etc, etc...

That said, being old 1980s Maseratis, I'm sure we'll have something like the "Supercars for less than a second hand Mondeo" challenge.

'Stoked'? Is that some hint of an other steam power story? :think:

Was that actually a police escort?! And did the camera car guys always wear helmets? I don't think I've ever seen either of those before.

That truck with scaffolding is a far cry from the cameraman sitting in the back of a Range Rover with the back door open.

They would need it there for two reasons. Firstly to avoid getting stuck in dreadful, stop/start London traffic which would ruin the film and secondly to stop the inevitable dickhead getting too close and trying to get his ugly mug and/or car on TV.

I think it's actually a legal requirement that if you are shooting with a camera car like that you need a police escort.

Good god -- not just the paunch, but hints of plumber's pants as well.
So now we have two points of mockery for the CHM series -- JC's paunch and RH's face fungus. What bizarity wil JM bring?

One more intelligent press commentator a while back said Hammond's new goatee made him look like he had just been bog-snorkelling through an ants nest. I have to agree with him.
