Top Gear TV’s best British moments

  1. The one with… the E-Type

    For a few brief moments, Britain got carmaking right. And the epitome of our success was this - the Jaguar E-Type, which turned 50 last year. Jeremy gives it the tub-thumping recognition it deserves…

  2. And some of the time, Britain got things wrong. Very wrong. Very often. As exampled by British Leyland; once the fourth biggest carmaker… in the world. Jeremy, James and Richard test sample its more exotic delights.

  6. Haven’t they been busy in the colonies? As well as setting up their very own car industry, they’ve gone and made their own Top Gear. Jeremy, Richard and James show the Aussies how it’s done…

  7. In honour of the great British tradition of white van men, the boys buy their own wheeled box for under a grand. Then crash them rather a lot.

  8. The one with… the smallest car in the world

    OK, so technically the Isle of Man - where the tiny Peel P50 was built - is a self-governing Crown Dependency of the United Kingdom. But we’ll still merrily bask in its reflective glory. And give you the opportunity to watch Jeremy drive it through the BBC again.

  9. Three British men being very British in a British endurance race driving. Shame the car’s German, but three out of four ain’t bad…

  10. Jeremy takes on the best of the British armed forces in an ex-drug dealer’s Mitsubishi Evo.
