werent it V16?

stunning all the same.

Also wasnt atkinsons time faster than vettels albeit in a slightly faster car? correct me if im wrong.

The trains for me was a bit predictable it was alright but seemed too false for me to get excited about. Was amusing at times though.

Thats it. Not sure where I got 19 from. lol

Atkinsons was very very quick.
He's a Mclaren F1 for 14 years and lent it to top gear. thats some erm...trust? lol

There was parts of the train that did seem a bit acted and thats whats starting to kill top gear for me.
its entertaining for sure.

I owned that S8 that they used but sold it about 3 years ago. I had it from new and did over 120,000 miles in it. i have to say that I was surprised to see it and glad that they didn't trash it.
