TG TV s28, ep6: the BMW M8, and driving McRae's Impreza

Plus, the series finale sees an emergency services track test...

  • With 616bhp, the M8 is the most powerful BMW ever made. This is a good thing. At over £120,000, it’s also the most expensive M-car yet. This is not such a good thing. For that sort of money, would you really have an M8 over an Audi R8, or a Honda NSX, or a Bentley Continental GT, or an Aston Martin DB11? On the TG track, Paddy McGuinness tackles that definitely-not-rhetorical question.

    It’s 25 years since Colin McRae became the first British driver to win the WRC. Time, then, for Chris Harris to revisit one of the greatest motorsport seasons ever with a misty-eyed retrospective. And, while he was at it, to borrow McRae’s championship-winning Subaru Impreza 555 for a thrash around the woods. He’s selfless like that.

    Also in the show, Paddy, Freddie and Chris team up with the emergency services for a thorough track test. A test set to establish teamwork, and more importantly, speed.
