The show has a number of Suzuki Lianas for use in the celebrity race segment, entitled "Star in a reasonably priced car". The Liana was chosen because it is quite a decent spec of equipment for a car under 10,000 pounds. Originally they were going to use a Hyundai, but Hyundai refused to help them out - prompting the first episode of the show to be advertised as "containing no Hyundais". The Lianas have appeared in various disguises; sporting flames for Rock Singer Justin Hawkins of The Darkness, and an Indian tissue box for 'Sanjeev Baskhar'. There are several Lianas in case one breaks during the show. To date, David Soul is the only celebrity to have broken all of the available Lianas during filming. See more »
Top Gear is unlike any of the car shows produced in the U.S. It is, to use a term popular on the other side of the pond, brilliant. The hosts display personalities, wit, and charm. Along with the facts and numbers the souls of the cars are revealed. Any car. We aren't subjected to just the latest and greatest, but, also the common; just seen through the eyes of those who enjoy cars. Top Gear is like sitting around with your buddies and talking cars and having a good laugh all the while. It was good to have a car show that's intelligent and witty. It's a shame the Discovery Channel no longer has room in it's schedule for a show that's fun to watch.
