    Even Hammond is having a go at Audi drivers now!!!

    Mind you, finally an RS3, but sadly a Veritas rather than an Audi...

    Looks like something from Gerry Anderson in the 60s.

    £250k ?????

    kind of makes me want to buy a fiesta, all they need to do is release a ST version. I wouldn't want to buy the test model though, not with the amount of water they drove it thru !

    I'm suprised he didn't kill it driving into such deep Seawater, surely the engine might have sucked up a little lol.

    over in Oz, we are only just watching season 11 - just saw hammond racing the Audi RS6 in the snow against some skiers.

    We now have our own Oz version of Top Gear - apparently the first licenced overseas version.

    I strongly recommend you guys DON'T watch it. Its absolute garbage and the population have unanimously bagged the **** out of it. Its embarrassing!!!

    I loved the Fiesta piece, it started so sensibly then jsut went mental in a typical Top Gear way! Im local to Basingstoke where they filmed the shopping centre scene & will never feel the same walking around the shopping centre! Thats some serious skill to not crash into a shop & do some serious damage, although bet the cleaners were'nt too pleased with the amount of tyre marks the Corvette left behind!! Bet the security guards were p'ing themselves watching the cameras!!!

    Also, how quick was that Caterham??!! What the heck is under the bonnet as they never said??

    the upside is that season 2 can only be better

    2.0 Ford lump. It's quick because it's so light.

    When I heard it initially I thought it might be a Hayabusa engine as the revs sounded more bike than car.
