The Isdera was one of the cars featured in that videogame. I had a copy of it back in the late 90's, but I think that I've lost it since.

Top Gear has said that they use Range Rovers in several episodes and showed you them. They have the back door open with people filming.

I believe they've also used other SUVs on a few occasions, cars which were being used on the "Loaners" (long term tests) section of Top Gear magazine.
Yeah and sometimes an Audi A3.
The "making of" of Clarkson's last few DVDs which uses most of the crew and equipment of Top Gear, is available from the FTPs. You can see the chase cars in action - and in the metal - there.

When it comes to feature films, old Citroens are the cars of choice due to Citroen's trademark hydropneumatic suspension. See, for example: http://www.buff-connection.com/cc.html - they got a Mini chase car, too, in case you want to re-create the Italian Job...

There's a production company in the US that uses an Evo 9 as a chase car. Maybe they use something similar
:drool:

They're not, like, hiring are they?

Ooh! Can this thread be full of camera car porn? The question's already been answered a zillion times and I <3 camera cars.
