One test on Chinese cars that Jeremy and James didn’t attempt...
So there was one thing that Jeremy and James missed out from their exhaustive test of the Chinese car industry in the last series - their apparent ability to perform loop-the-loops.
We're not sure if the loop-the-loop is indeed an elaborate new safety test to bring Chinese cars up to Euro NCAP standards, but we can confirm that the Youngman Lotus L5 Sportback passes with flying colours.
At the helm of the 130 horsepower L5 (a rebadged Proton Gen 2) was a very brave man, Li Yatao. Li successfully piloted the car around a 42 ft 2.69 inch diameter loop, a feat that has landed his name in the Guinness Book of World Records.
