I'm not sure what added value the "rare" element gave to that last episode to be honest.

I'd have found it just as entertaining with a Montego Countryman and a Scirocco MK2, and you'd not have had to bash about the only Matra made RHD example left in existence.

I know, I know, not my car, it wasn't exactly mint, blah blah blah... Just seems a bit of a waste to me.

Another good episode. Personally I liked the Roller, I have always liked Rollers. I'd have it just because it has gone through tasteless and out the other side.

I like Rollers too and I get why they want to tap the suv market but the Cullinan looks like they’ve commissioned a Chinese car company to copy a Range Rover....badly. 2/10 Roll Royce, see me after class.

They have tried to make it look like a Roller which have made the looks very Marmite. The thing is that piece was very poorly done. Yes it is ugly. Yes it is pointless, most high end 4x4s are TBH. But he wasted the whole piece using cliches and stereo types to make the point that he didn't like it.

I enjoyed that. The Lotus/groundforce piece was very good.

I've not seen it yet, but apparently they used my mate Tim's R4 Van, and he made the bit on the back to replicate the original skirt test device.

I'll try and get it watched tonight.

Been a good & entertaining series. I think they’ll only get better as a team now they have new confidence brought about by good feedback.

I am delighted to have been proven wrong about them. Sunday night Top Gear is once again something to look forward to. Bring on the next series.

It was a good series. I just wish it was more than 5 episodes.
