So it is with a heavy heart that even we have to concede that Top Gear is a fantastic TV show. It’s so good even people who aren’t particularly interested in cars like it. For God’s sake, even our mums like it. It’s that good.
In fact, it’s so good, it can even afford to have that annoying, smug, pubic-haired twit Jeremy Clarkson in it – and still be good. It’s that good.
But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at the show’s best moments and judge for yourselves. And if you have some suggestions of you own, please let us know.
14. Beating the Germans
OK, but beating the Germans should always be enjoyed.
13. Killing a Toyota pick-up
Toyota – the Rasputin of pick-up trucks.
12. Car darts
Darts with cars – brilliant.
11. Crossing The Channel
The only way to cross The Channel.
10. The Ariel Atom
Clarkson becomes even more grotesque than normal.
9. Bugatti Veyron v Eurofighter Typhoon
A car racing a plane? Doesn’t seem like a fair challenge.
8. Football, with cars!
Cars and football – genius!!
7. Richard Hammond’s return
It’s an emotional return for The Hamster after he almost died in a high speed crash. Hankies out.
6. The Top Gear Winter Olympics
The Winter Olympics was never this interesting.
5. The car v the tank
We’d all like to shoot Jeremy Clarkson with a tank.
4. The Arctic adventure
Richard Hammond by sled, Jeremy Clarkson and James May by car. Who will win the race to the North Pole? Are we the only people who wished Jeremy Clarkson had frozen to death?
3. The Reliant Robin space shuttle
A Reliant Robin suddenly becomes interesting.
2. Turning a car into a boat
Turning cars into boats! Water a great idea!! Get it?
