Hammond drives the icons: TVR Tuscan S
Alpha-plus male? Check. Stunning trophy girl? Check. Bag of spanners? Er, check...

I set off round the TopGear Test Track keeping half an eye always on where I'd started from, because I figured I'd be walking back at any moment soon and didn't want to get too far away. But I must confess that I was cheating rather. The one I'm in has been extensively tweaked by Racing Green Cars, with modified cylinder head, suspension, differential, steering and gearbox.
Essentially, then, this is RGC's view of how the Tuscan should have been in the first place. And it does feel, straightaway, really rather brilliant. Power is up from the original 350bhp to 436bhp, but, most importantly, reliability is up from the original none to some.
