2010 Top Gear Awards: Jeremy’s Car of the Year
Back in the day, the loudest thing at the TG track was Jezza himself... but that was before the Pagani Zonda R

It's fast, though. The whole car is fast, in fact. So fast that I simply don't know how fast it goes. I know it shattered the lap record at the Nürburgring, getting round in 6.47, but I spent a whole day at Imola with the R, and not once did I emerge from any corner thinking "Well, I can't do that any faster." I just kept blasting round and round under the blazing Italian sun, thinking lots of things, but mostly how lucky I am to have such a wonderful job.
Then the R came to the TopGear track. And broke down.
