Hammond drives the icons: TVR Tuscan S

Picture 1 of 7

It still gets me every time - there are no doorhandles! Amazing. We live in a time when a family car can have radar-assisted cruise control, dual-zone aircon, seats that massage your buns, and night vision, but I still get a little James-Bond-spy thrill every time I reach under the door mirror of a Tuscan to press the discreet little button that opens the door. It's there, ex-TVR boss Peter Wheeler would tell you, to leave the car's sculpted lines clean and uncluttered by door-opening furniture. But I think it's there largely 'cos it's cool if you know where to find the little secret button and your passenger doesn't and has to ask you, all doe-eyed and helpless, how to get in. This feature first appeared in the December 2011 issue of Top Gear magazine Words: Richard Hammond Pictures: Justin Leighton
