BBC Top Gear

I think this has been mentioned before, but if you have a fast internet connection download some of these BBC Top Gear test drives from here.

The M5 and 911 Turbo videos are the best ones so far and are highly recommended. The reviewer is friggen crazy!! I'm downloading the M3 test next!

This link contains a video of a Diablo taken to 340km/h! Worth a look also.

I'm after Honda s2000 video for a friend, has anybody come across any?

The M5 one is great (pity how he loses it at the start though).
The funniest thing is seeing Tiff and then seeing how he DRIVES! What an absolute legend (mind you, anyone that can do a controlled 360 spin deserves that much!).

Hey, download the McLaren F1.....that's the best out of all of them!

Agreed on that one! Yeah I'm a HUGE fan of Top Gear, it's so well presented, and they're not afraid to call a spade a spade. But most importantly, whatever they are testing, no matter the pricetag, it's bound to get absolutely rogered out on a track or airfield!!! Fantastic!! :thumbup:

I think it is. I've only ever seen it on the web.

Anyone heard of a regular automotive program that will be on free to air television next week sometime?
