OM: Either way, it's a missionary. And it's my winner.
SP: So are we declaring the slowest, least powerful, second-cheapest car here our overall victor? This feels strange.
OM: But right, I think. The Toyota was the car everyone kept jumping into for "one last quick go", and the one they got out of with the daftest smiles on their midge-bitten faces.
SP: So there we have it: the GT86, Top Gear's Speed Week Champion. Congratulations, Toyota, and thanks for all the rear tyres. Another pint of haggis, Oliver?
