Behind the scenes at this week’s Top Gear

  1. It was hot again at the Top Gear studio this week. Hot, and loud. The Stig was having fun making two very special Lamborghini V10s pop and bang around our test track, rock legend Steven Tyler wrung our Vauxhall Astra Techline to within an inch of its life between Aerosmith anecdotes, and Jeremy and James wouldn’t stop telling everyone how proud they were of their VERY SERIOUS CONSUMER TEST involving caravans and tow cars.

    You can see more this Sunday as usual - including May’s ode to a one-off Porsche 911, and Hammond’s film on said special Lamborghinis - but for now click on for a glimpse of what happened at Dunsfold…
