    They must go through a decent few Reasonably Priced Cars.
    I am still laughing when Schumacher hit the camera and broke the windscreen :p

    That was an excellent episode.

    Yes, the newer challenges do feel more scripted but it's maybe not such a bad thing as it was properly funny. I couldn't stop laughing when they dug out the remote for James' stereo and clicked it on as he was trying to get into the driveway quietly.

    Love the sound of that Lambo as well. Yes please.

    Quite an impressive looking place to go for a drive about...

    I swear they introduced that scene with some of the soundtrack from the Dune movie? Sounded very similar anyway.

    That Lambo is made of so much win... It's a classic poster on the wall super car...

    good episode.

    I agree the remote for the radio was genius when they used it.

    I think they were also genuinly shocked how much it costs a 17 year old to get insurance on even a beaten up banger. Something needs to be done when it costs 15 times more than the car you own. (of course the argument is that it's to pay for the car you hit, not your own)

    I'm also glad the FXX was removed. Thats 1 point to me :)

    Need more footage of the Veyron v the F1 though. Hammonds launch in the Veryron was shocking though to say the least. (also the heat dosn't help the turbo car with about 10 radiators trying to cool it)

    Bring on the next one. :D

    Watched it last night, enjoyed it as usual. That road looked amazing, having driven down the Stelvio this year (granted it was in a 1.8 Mondeo) I wouldn't say its anything like the best road in the world, but that Transfăgărăşan pass looked amazing.

    Top Gear Season 15 Back In June :)


    It seems that the boys have tackled an active volcano, in Iceland of course. Equipped with a Toyota (similar to the North Pole edition) and some volcano experts of course, this might be seen as the biggest challenge ever on Top Gear.

    It seems imminent that Top Gear Season 15 will be aired on the 20th June 2010. The 3 boys will be celebrated as Jeremy Clarkson will be hailed as Grandpa Jeremy. There will be 7 episodes in season 15. The upcoming cars that will (might) be reviewed will be the Ferrari 458, new Jaguar XJ, Aston Martin Rapide and some other stunning ones too.

    Rumor has it that the Reasonably Priced Car will be replaced, not too sure to which car but things will just get more interesting. Expect a heck load of adventure and drama on season 15.
