Video: watch Stig versus Asimo!

What happened when two world-famous white-helmeted humanoids came face to face?

Poor old Asimo. Honda’s pet robot is a friendly and helpful sort, who thought he was alone in this world. A single white droid, built to make every human’s life that little bit easier.  

But we all know there’s another white humanoid on Planet Earth, an altogether stranger thing. And Top Gear, being the charitable lot that we are, thought it was only fair to introduce the two.

Asimo seems genuinely delighted to meet our tame racing driver, and even dances a jig in celebration.

The Stig? The Stig’s initial reaction… isn’t altogether positive. We may have to re-think this…
