Default Top Gear - S17 EP01 - 26th June, 2011 - Discussion

Jeremy Clarkson celebrates the 50th birthday of the Jaguar E-type by driving a modern-day interpretation of this sports classic, and throwing a typically low-key party involving live music, classic fighter planes and the Royal Marines. Richard Hammond is in South Africa, where he tests a bigger, more rugged alternative to the Hummer, and James May enlists the help of Olympic athlete Amy Williams to try out the latest Mini rally car. Plus, the Stig takes the BMW 1-series M around the test track and another celebrity gets behind the wheel of the Reasonably Priced Car.
They're back

Nice review of the M1, and a great sound in the fakedo jag E type. Alice Cooper is a bit slow. Nice to see TG back

Always happy to see new TG. Not the best episode weve ever seen but not bad at all, especially for all those haters who said TG was getting too far away from reviewing cars. The E-Type vid was my favorite, although I must say I only like the E-Type in a hard top, as is the case with most cars for me. I hate convertibles.

Yes Please!

Thanks for the link! That guy does look like Richard! Looking forward to the Mr Bean interview he should bring his Mclaren F1

does anyone recognise the song they play during the BMW 1M intro?
I've heard it before just cannot figure out who is the artist.
