Trivia

It was announced in June 2019, that the series version of "Top Gear Extra" would be cancelled as a formal behind the scenes companion series to the corresponding episode of Top Gear, but the name would still be used as branding for the behind the scenes content on other platforms. Rory Reid will then be primarily hosting "Top Gear Electric", focusing on the more cutting edge technology, which is a good fit due to his coming from a more modern computer science background. Chris Harris is still on (main) Top Gear, along with his new (to the show) colleagues Andrew "Freddie Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness. See more »

Quotes

Richard Hammond: [announcing the Top Gear 2008 Awards in December 2008] Right, this is the award for the best noise we've heard all year. These are the nominations. The V8 bellow of the new Mercedes CLK Black, The V8 bellow of the Ferrari Scuderia and the V8 bellow of the Alfa Romeo 8C. Well, the winner of this category. The winner, you are gonna love this, Jeremy.
Jeremy Clarkson: Is it the Black?
Richard Hammond: No. Actually, the winner is, Will Young's new single!

User Reviews

Best Car programme ever!
27 June 2004 | by ultrachronicSee all my reviews

If you like cars, then this programme is just simply amazing. Unlike most programmes that are in this genre, the programme has survived a beyond 20 years at the top, and not many programmes come close. 5th Gear on five does come close, but it just doesn't have the heart or the dedication that Top Gear does.

While the people on 5th Gear only talk about cars, the Top Gear crew talk about everything that is to do with cars, and not just the cars themselves. For example, they have "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" where a celebrity goes round their track to see how fast they are. And once, they decided to test the Toyota Pickup's claim of being the "the toughest car on the road" by basically ramming it into stuff, and putting it on a building that got demolished etc. and it still actually run. They also once tested if you can run your diesel car off of Vegetable Oil (you can, although your exhaust smells like a bag of chips).

Overall, this programme's great and a show you must fit into your weekly schedule, gets 10/10
