Top Gear S12_Jeremy Clarkson

Great news! The 3 young lads of Top Gear - original-format genuine Top Gear United Kingdom with the barely-legal presenters & their tamed racing joker - are back today, on the 2nd of Nov, for an ambitious but rubbish new Series 12!!!

First of all, there's the Top Gear ad which reveals just about everything on what's going to be shown…

& the most exciting bit of the video shows this:

Top Gear S12_The Stig Bugatti Veyron
Top Gear S12_The Stig Bugatti Veyron_2

A Bugatti Veyron at the hands claws of The Stig. Remember when Top Gear magazine got Stig to do a threesome photoshoot in Dubai... So finally, someone pitied them & decided to lend his Veyron against the promised 38 quids. Bugatti have always refused to let Top Gear take the Veyron around the track.
The Veyron certainly won't be the fastest car, since it will be slow on the corners, but its massive acceleration of 0-100 in 2.53s & its spoiler brakes will be crucial. I'd predict a time around the Enzo.

Other snips from the trailer:

  • Veritas RS III
  • Stig in a Bugatti Veyron
  • Lamborghini Gallardo
  • Speedboat driving
  • Double decker bus racing
  • Semi truck foolishness
  • Pagoni Zonda
  • Corvette ZR1
  • Cadillac CTS-V
  • Dodge Challenger SRT8
  • Reno shenanigans
  • Mercedes Benz C63 AMG
  • Lexus IS-F
  • Bathroom challenge, apparently

Teasers from Top Gear Magazine: - James tests the Honda FCX Clarity in California.

Top Gear S12_Buses

- A bunch of Touring Car drivers are assembled to race buses in an effort to find out the best transport solution for London. - The boys are given a wholly unsuitable car to modify to match the performance of an Evo X FQ-300 around the track.


- James goes to Finland to find out why they drink so much coffee, borrow more library books than any other nation and produce so many world class drivers for such a small country.

- The Ferrari Daytona is 40 and to celebrate Richard and James race each other in a Daytona and a powerboat around the Mediterranean. - Jeremy and James look at the cars from the days of Soviet Russia. - The boys do an economy run from Switzerland to Blackpool to switch on the Illuminations. Rumour has it not all of them get there. - Jeremy goes shopping in the new Ford Fiesta. - Another Cheap Car Challenge, this time in trucks, results in a lifetime ban from Millbrook Proving Grounds. Expect an appearance from the Stig's Fat Truck Driving Cousin. - Road trip from San Francisco to Bonneville in modern muscle cars to see if the Americans can make good cars.


- Season Finale - can they travel the length of Vietnam on a budget of 13 million Vietnamese Dong? Which is about £1.38, probably.

In the first episode : – to be aired this Sunday at 20:00GMT (01:00AM Monday) 

Top Gear S12E01 - Trucks Top Gear S12E01 - Gallardo LP560-4

And chat show legend Michael Parkinson is the Star In A Reasonably Priced Car. More here on

Cheers for the link. The TG guys are really mad and that's WHAT I like. That bus race must be a cracker!

I, for my part, just got acquainted with Mauritian rally and had the luck of having a sneak peek at Rajesh Ramdanee's new C4 WRC.

No man, it was just an encounter. If I'd known I'd have taken a camera with me. Don't know if my step mother will be going back there but if she does I'll try to get a shot.
