Top Gear is a British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars, and is a relaunched version of the original 1977 show of the same name, airing since 2002, and becoming the most widely watched factual television programme in the world. Written by
The show has a number of Suzuki Lianas for use in the celebrity race segment, entitled "Star in a reasonably priced car". The Liana was chosen because it is quite a decent spec of equipment for a car under 10,000 pounds. Originally they were going to use a Hyundai, but Hyundai refused to help them out - prompting the first episode of the show to be advertised as "containing no Hyundais". The Lianas have appeared in various disguises; sporting flames for Rock Singer Justin Hawkins of The Darkness, and an Indian tissue box for 'Sanjeev Baskhar'. There are several Lianas in case one breaks during the show. To date, David Soul is the only celebrity to have broken all of the available Lianas during filming. See more »
In short, Top Gear is the ultimate TV car program. If you like cars, it's the thing to watch - and if you don't, watch it anyway because you don't need to be a petrolhead or car buff to enjoy it. Pure, undiluted fun. Three insane Brits who are not shy of giving devastating test summaries for cars that didn't cut it. Not to mention the other stuff they think up, be that the 1500 quid used Porsche test or Caravan Conkers...the list is almost endless. While other TV car shows feature lots of boring junk, the Top Gear crew isn't afraid of anything. If needs be they put on helmets and crash test cars into a wall at 30 mph.
Even my mother likes to watch it, and her interest in cars is limited to "I like how that one looks" at the very best.
Eat your heart out, Richard Brunstrom! ;^> JK'05 aka Elkrider
