The TG Nan Prix
Four of Britain’s least expensive cars. One Stig. No optional extras. Will any survive?

Stig is not impressed. Our tame racing driver never looks thrilled, exactly, but right now, stood on the start-finish line and looking down the track at the Renault Twingo, Hyundai i10, Suzuki Alto and Chevrolet Spark, he seems even more irritated off than usual.
I think I know what’s happened here. Stig, as he is wont to do, got wind that we were descending on the track with 279bhp and £30,000 of metal. Clearly he wasn’t expecting those figures to be split between four cars. Still, Stig can’t be upset that we’ve delivered him 14 cylinders (two threes and two fours, if you’re counting) and a combined top speed of 390mph, can he? Ah, yes, he can.
