Top Gear 06e06s 4\4

Review: The Aston Martin DBR9 racer is given a race around the track. It sets a very quick time of 1:08.6, but can’t go on the board because it is not a production vehicle & it was on slick tyres. Challenge: A race from Heathrow Airport to Oslo. Clarkson chose the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren because it was both extremely fast and completely comfortable. This choice seemed to vindicate the SLR as the better real-world car over the Porsche Carrera GT. He embarked on a tiring 1320-mile (2120 km) drive via the Channel Tunnel, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark, the ├śresund Bridge, Sweden, and into Norway. Hammond and May took a flight to Newcastle upon Tyne, and then a ferry to Kristiansand. Initially, it looked hopeful for them as they planned to complete the trip by speedboat; however, in heavy seas, they broke down in two speedboats and had to complete the journey by bus. Though Clarkson had spent a few hours napping in Denmark, he beat them by several hours due to the setbacks. News: Nissan Micra C+C, the car for the man who “likes musicals”. Also, Hummer have produced aftershave and cologne for “inbreds.” Star in a Reasonably Priced Car: Jeremy discusses A Picture of Britain and Question Time with David Dimbleby. Lap time of 1:52 Greatest Driving Song of All Time: Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild”
