Believe it or not, Top Gear originally started broadcasting in 1977 and has had many ups and downs since then. However, starting in 2002, after almost being cancelled in 2001, the show has a great new format and has been on an absolute tear. What’s the reason behind its success? Crazy stunts like having snipers shoot at an evading Porsche Boxster S and Mercedes SLK55 AMG, driving a Land Rover Discovery to the top of a mountain, comparing video game lap times to real life, pitting amphibious cars against one another, racing a Nissan GT-R against a Japanese bullet train, and on and on…

It is the best automotive focused television show ever. More than that, it is one of the best documentary-style shows ever made. The production value, editing, and cinematography often rival Hollywood films. The writing is witty, informative, yet exciting. I can’t say enough about this show, and I can never watch it often enough. I find myself watching episodes over and over, either to enjoy the cars, the information, or the brilliant picture of a Pagani Zonda drifting. If it was a car, it would beat the best time on it’s own track, and be the most perfect car ever.
I would like to see a Bugatti Veyron go up against a javelin-thrower from start to finish (when the Bugatti takes off as soon as the javelin-thrower lets loose) and see which one gets to the finish-line first.
I think I would like to see the new R8 featured in a race, which it hasn’t (not a long distance race at least). I think you would put Hammond in the new Porsche Turbo, Jeremy in the new Nissan GTR, and the refined and subdued James May in the Audi R8. Put them each at a corner of the EU, and race towards a central point. Put Jeremy at the Southern tip of Italy, Hammond at the Southern tip of Spain, and May in Denmark. All at equal distances from Paris. It would be a long distance competition, like the one they did to Blackpool, but this time saving gas is not the main idea. The cars would be tested for their speed, ease of use, and Grand Touring abilities.
It has been said that a cheetah can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds. I would like to see a Ferrari Enzo vs a Cheetah. I don’t know how you get the cheetah to run like the wind but it could be cool. Probably couldn’t get them to race in real time but could take their 3 best times as a comparison…
