    Another top show as always.

    How stunning was that Veyron though? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Cost 5 Million to make and they are sold for £840,000 (Not that I could afford one mind LOL)

    Excellent show........ Jojo - believe me, although the below is from the show, I haven't spoilt it 4 you - there's plenty more entertainment.....

    What stats the veyron had....

    Standing start race with a MAC F1.... let the F1 get to 120 mph before the Veyron started and the Veyron would beat it to 200 mph - wow....

    only 10 secs to stop from 200mph.....

    10 Rads........ Jeez....

    ......oh for 6 numbers on the lottery...

    Yeah. It's a pity the Stig didn't take it out, but considering there's only 300 out there, cost over a million euro and they've seen what happens to Suzukis on the track, it's no wonder /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I suppose tonight is one of the rare times you can see the virtues of commercially funded TV. If there were advertising slot prices at stake I don't think there's a chance in hell Top Gear would've been shelved for the bloody Snooker /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I read in yesterday's ST Driving section that they weren't able to test it on the track because they couldn't get one! In fact, the one in the studio wasn't real, it was an empty shell. They are hoping to get another one in the New Year for the Stig to put through it's paces.

    Yeah but as Clarkson said on Jonathan Ross recently they wouldn't be allowed to be so brutally honest if there were say BMW ads halfway through the show - gotta keep those sponsors happy!
    They had to change the show when it was shown in the states as it was mainly funded by car manufacturers - pathetic if you ask me, make better cars and then you won't have the problem!

    One day soon, that Suzuki is going to be put up for sale, probably advertised as having had one careful owner (omitting to mention that the owner in question, the BBC, has allowed it to be thrashed to oblivion by numerous not very careful drivers).

    In fact, I can think of a couple of people I don't like very much, whom I kinda hope end up buying it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
