Now we can all our stop our whinging...
Viewers of Top Gear last weekend may have wondered why the Stig did not put the Bugatti Veyron through its paces. With a top speed of 252mph, it could have set a new record for the Top Gear track.
Unfortunately the model featured on the show wasn?t quite so nippy. The ?800,000 supercars are so hard to come by, the producers had to make do with a dummy model. Underneath its much-admired exterior was nothing but, er, hot air.
?We couldn?t get a real one for the show,? admitted Jeremy Clarkson. ?But we hope to get the Stig to test one on the Top Gear track in the spring?.
Of course the Veyron that Clarkson raced across France, against his fellow presenters in a plane, was for real.
