Episode Guide


Challenge: Clarkkid, Hammond and also May construct stretch limos to drive celebrities to the Brit Awards. They initially perform several tests on the Top Gear test track, including evasive maneuvers such as a J-turn. Both James and also Jeremy acquired out of their vehicles during the challenges and also were respectively shot in the groin by paintballs and knocked over by a blast from a fire apparatus water cannon. Clarkchild chose a 1992 Fiat Panda to chauffeur BBC Radio 1’s Chris Moyles. After extfinishing it to an absurd length (necessitating a wheeled platdevelop to lug passengers to the ago seat), he was forced to remove 7 feet to make it road-legal, causing it to break in fifty percent in the middle of London. Hammond determined an 1996 MG F and also, after it is extended right into a limo (via no roof except at the very rear) has to take Jamelia to the Brit Awards. May chose a 1994 Saab 9000 and an 1996 Alfa Romeo 164, the 2 of which are conjoined into a limo with steering wheels at both ends. He has to take Lemar to the Brit Awards. Hammond arrived initially and also mostly without event, although the open-peak nature of his limo and also the throttle ending up being stuck expected that Jamelia attracted more attention than she wanted. Clarkchild arrived soon thereafter, despite the whole rear fifty percent of his automobile being absent. May gained shed and also Lemar stormed out of May’s auto after being an hour late to the start of the ceremony. The ultimate winner of the task was whoever obtained the the majority of photos of their vehicle published in newsrecords or magazines, and also Clarkchild earned that honor, by virtue of having a photo printed in his very own column in The Sun.

Review: Ricdifficult Hammond test-drives the latest Shelby Mustang GT500. Hammond says that the 500 horsepower (370 kW) rating of the automobile as suggested in its name is exaggerated. He has actually it tested on a portable wheel dynamometer which yields 447 horsepower (333 kW). He likewise put his own classical Mustang GT390 on the dyno and it had actually 250 RWHP. (This accusation of “false advertising” is incorrect, yet, as the dynamometer measured wheel horsepower whereas the advertised output is brake horsepower, directly off the crankshaft of the engine. The losses in the drivetrain totally define the lessened output). The greatest difficulty via the more recent car, however, is the untransformed suspension through a live axle. As Clarkkid later explains, “You can’t put that a lot power in a auto without transforming the suspension.” The Stig takes the Shelby roughly the track in a wobbly fashion in 1:30, beating the time of a Vauxhall Monaro VXR by .1 second. In response, Clarkson presents one more Mustang altered by tuning home Roush. The Roush Mustang is less effective than the Shelby with 415 BHP, but it has actually upgraded braking, more sophisticated suspension, and a limited slip differential. The Stig takes the Roush about the track in a much more controlled time of 1:28.

Some say…

“Some say he isn’t machine washable, and all his potted plants are dubbed ‘Steve’. All we recognize is he’s called the Stig.”
