Let's hope the Enzo, CGT etc.. are tested on a non-raining day. Either way, the record will probably be broken

Not sure, Enzo has higher power to weight by a little and is similarly high tech, will be little in it. McLaren has a much higher power to weight but is a lot softer in its springing. I reckon the Enzo has the best chance.

The CGT (supposedly) usually outperforms the Enzo on tight circuits but i'm sure it will be close nonetheless. But what about the F40? Sure it's old but we're still talking over 400bhp/ton and mountains of torque.

Actually there's a pile of classics / cars no longer in production which i'd love to see thrashed around the TG test track. Here's a wish list, in case Clarkson's reading - maybe he's here for the video vault to relive his favourite moments
Alfa - SZ
BMW - E30 M3, E34 M5, M1
Bugatti - EB110
Cizeta Moroder
Dodge - Viper (mk1)
Jaguar - XJ220
Ferrari - 288GTO, F40, F50, F355
Lamborghini - Diablo, Countach
Lancia - Integrale Evo II
McLaren F1
Mercedes - CLK GTR
Porsche - original 911 RS, 959, 993 GT2, GT1, 993


That would be un-fucking-believable. So how about it, JC? That would be a DVD i would definitely buy 8)

I am about to crap myself. I have contributed a lot to this site in the past three months or so of my life and now when i need access to the vids, I don't have it. Looking for some sympathy please. Will die if not fed video.

they show the half hour eps of Top Gear on BBC on Foxtel, pretty much only car reviews without stars in reasonably priced cars or news, but it's better than nothing!
