The one with Gambon corner
Series 1, Episode 8 (2002)
Michael Gambon nearly rolls our reasonably priced car and renames a corner on the TG track as a result. Lotus builds a Lada, Richard drives some hottish minis and a Maserati gets Stigged…
TestsAudi RS6 vs E55 AMG
Jeremy goes power mad with the Mercedes E55 AMG and Audi RS6 and still has room for wardrobes. But he’s in for a surprise when he ends up talking to a rock legend.
Another severe test for Richard’s powers of staying awake, as he battles to be entertained by a Nissan Micra-led bunch of barely warm superminis. It’s funny.
TestsWhite van slam
Forget Lewis Hamilton – it’s the white van drivers who are really Britain’s fastest. Watch as a bunch of van gods shoot it out in a Ford WRC Transit.
TestsLotus does Lada
See what happens when we take a viewer’s crappy Lada Riva 1.5E and get the guys from Lotus to turn it into a sharp-handling track-taming stunner. Sort of.
Share a moment of Top Gear history as the thespian adds a bit of class to our track challenge, and then has that moment we named a whole corner after.Watch Now
