Top Gear (the TV show)


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has came up before, but did the Top gear guys ever test drive an 02 in the 70s when they started that show? Has one ever popped up in their ridiculous "challenges"?

Just curious, I mean, how could they not.. .

I found about this show a few months ago, and love it. It makes the AutoWeek TV show look like Mr. Rogers (no offense to the belated Fred). We (FAQ'ers) should inundate their email demanding a 2002 road test/eval vintige comparo. Maybe we could get their attention.

The current version started 8 1/2 years ago (17/2) and as far as I

can remember, they've never had a 2002 on it.

They do get credit, though, for appreciating older decent cars.

At least, those with 4 wheels...

Never watched the 'classic' Top Gear...

Top gear is great if you need something to look at with your family.

My favourite car show is however "wheeler dealers" where they buy, restore and sell modern classic cars. There is plent on Youtube.

Enjoy!

I have seen a Top Gear show with the lead singer of Jamiroquai, Jay Kay. He is on the show talking about his car collection. At the end of the show, he says his favorite car to drive is his 02.

They have a new Music Vid out , that has him driving a classic blue 911, on a dirt road , with a helicopter chasing.

His first car was a 1602, which he bought back and still has. Also has, or had, a turbo. He's considering having an m2 built.

Top Gear started in the eighties, so no 'new' test drives. And if they did get an 02 on the show they'd only slag it off and then probably push it off a cliff with an x6!
