Has anyone mentioned the snow? Apparently, it’s snowing. Heavily. This has brought many parts of the UK to a standstill. In the latest issue of Top Gear magazine, though, snow brought our collection of supercars, saloons and SUVs… to life.
Yes, welcome everyone, to the March 2018 issue of Top Gear magazine, and our Winter Games. A celebration of the most fun you can have in a car with the lowest level of jeopardy.
There is science to our madness. Few things are a greater leveller than zero grip – and the results are fascinating. Principally because the machinery we’ve corralled together on the ice is nothing short of astonishing.
There’s a supercar triple test in the shape of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, McLaren 570S Spider and Honda NSX. There’s a test of the brand new Aston Martin Vantage and Jaguar I-Pace. We pit Tesla’s wild P100D against the doyen of drag races, the Nissan GT-R.
Want some weirdness? We pit the rather large Range Rover Sport SVR against Suzuki’s charming little Ignis, while two super-saloon heavyweights battle it out on the 1,500-mile journey home in the real fight of the century: it’s the new BMW M5 vs Mercedes-AMG E63 S.
Plus, a snowmobile happens. And a rally car. And an Ariel Nomad. Pick up a copy of the latest issue to find out how they all fared.
