New Top Gear TV celebrates the best of BMW's M Division
Plus: classic hill trials, a hotride in the Ford Puma WRC car and a peek into the future of motoring
This year sees the fiftieth birthday of everyone’s favourite Bavarian-based automotive tuning department: BMW’s M Division. To celebrate half a century of spectacular, tyre-toasting Munich mayhem, Paddy commandeers some of the finest products ever churned out by the M Division, from the legendary 3.0 CSL Batmobile and V10-engined M5, right up to the present-day, nostril-tastic M3. But which will he M-declare the finest M-car of the M-bunch?
Elsewhere on episode five of series 32, Chris and Paddy are on a mission to show that going green doesn’t have to be dull. In fact – as they discover while testing some of the most ground-breaking new cars out there at the Top Gear test track – whether it’s batteries, hydrogen, or the brave new world of synthetic petrol, the future of fuel is looking very bright indeed.
The team also pay tribute to the BBC’s hundredth anniversary, motorsport style. How? By bouncing up some very steep country tracks in a very old, very expensive car, in what might be Britain’s most idiosyncratic motorsport: hill trials. Tally-ho!
And, Harris takes on Ford's WRC Puma.
