Since I got into Top Gear late, I missed out on the original rips, so like many others, I missed out on the "Greatest Car in the World" segments which I believe were in season 1 and 2.

I've found a couple on youtube, so I thought it would be good to share them all in a thread, especially if others have some too.

Citroen DS - James May

Land Rover - Richard Hammond

Ford Mustang - Jeremy Clarkson

McLaren F1 - Murray Walker

I had the link to the Ford Mustang done by Clarkson, but can't find it anymore.

Anyone got any others around?

I believe one of the guides has all the original order of segments, including all the "Greatest car in the World" ones.

I think there's about 10 in total, with stuff like the Fiat 500 and the McLaren F1.

Oh no Clarkson is bashing my car!! well I guess it does deserve it when left stock.
But he is absolutely right the original mustang is a true classic

Cheers for the McLaren F1! That was bloody good, it send shivers down my spine.

Anyone know if any other guest presenters do any?

Nick Mason did the Fiat 500, I can't remember the others. I have all the old rips still, but then I got the new ones too, as the wmv files won't play on my Mediagate.

bump, 4 years later...

Found this on youtube, Nick Mason reviewing the original Fiat 500 for Top Gear. I've never seen this before, and I've watched every single episode that's downloadable.

It's clearly the same "greatest car ever" segment. Does anyone know where to download the whole episode?

I've only seen the DS, Defender and the 500. Would love to see the others.
