Series 6

Top Gear Series 6 (2005)

Clarkson takes on the military this series in various guises as he pits a Range Rover up against a Challenger 2 tank, before seeing which of the Porsche Boxster S and the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG is best at dodging bullets from the Irish Guards. Balance is restored somewhat as the presenters’ mothers take to the track to test three small city cars, while Sabine Schmitz attempts to get round the Nurburgring in a Ford Transit in less than ten minutes. And Damon Hill and Mark Webber bring some Formula One pedigree to the test track, which also hosts a review of the Maserati MC12.
