Default Top Gear - S15 EP05 - 25th July, 2010 - Discussion

Richard Hammond finds out if Volkswagen has improved its second generation Touareg 4x4 by taking it to Sweden for a race against some hardcore snowmobilers. James May is in Germany attempting to break his personal speed record in a brand new, even more powerful version of the amazing Bugatti Veyron. In the year that legendary F1 star Ayrton Senna would have turned 50, Jeremy Clarkson asks why he's still considered the best driver of his generation.
Veyron SS

Alright, I am holding you to that review. If this truly isn't the best episode after 15 seasons and over 100 episodes, I'm flying north and hunting you down.

Great ep indeed. Action packed, and nicely done Senna tribute.

The senna bit was pretty good. The veryron bit felt overly familiar. Tom on two wheels was epic. What happened before that? I forgot already. Not the best of the season or ever

I enjoyed the Senna tribute, but I too think this episode pales in comparison to quite a few gems through the years. Hell, I think last weeks episode was better.

Guess I'll have to pay vexor a visit.

I guess we all have different ideas of what makes a great episode cause even after watching it a second time I still think it's the best.

Minacious, i'll have some coffee or tea ready for you

It's impossible to beat the "supercar" episode. Absolutely impossible. I think that was series 4 or 5.

This episode was OK. The Tom + whats her name from something about Mary was perhaps the most entertaining of the stars in cars bit... oh yeah, Cameron Diaz.

the Veyron SS top speed was oh so familiar as you said, but at least around the track it looked absolutely AWESOME They could've done an entire episode of Veyron SS goodness, and it might have been a "best ever" ...
