Top Gear - S14 EP7 - 3rd January, 2010 - Discussion
 
Quote:

In the final episode of the series, Jeremy Clarkson makes a film about the BMW X6 and ends up conducting one of the most expensive road tests in Top Gear history. James May drives the new Vauxhall Insignia VXR, accompanied by Margaret Calvert, the designer of Britain's road signs; and Richard Hammond tests the 340,000 pound Lexus supercar on the Top Gear track. The boys then try out the latest in electric personal transport in the studio, and the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car is blues musician Seasick Steve.
Last ep in series

"most expensive road tests in Top Gear history"

That's very hard to imagine

I would love to see the Lexus super car getting tested tho.

They put wayyy to much computer effect on the LFA review, making it too unrealistic. Amazing time posted by the stig tho.

The problem with the X6 is simply the tires are wayyy to wide to provide enough pressure on slippery surface other than smooth tarmac.

A pretty entertaining ep, but not the best of the season for me.

I think that was almost done on purpose to portray the fact that the car is all flash and fake.

The X6 had sport tires on, a big mistake BMW made when the X5 came out and winter hit the US and all the cars with the Sport Package were driven by morons and didn't relize that summer tires don't work in snow.

With proper tires the X6 is just as good as the Land Rover the design is just silly.

I was in my BMW dealer getting service when the X6 came out and I asked the sales guy whats the point of the car and he said its for the suave man who has everything. That pretty much says it and that was what Jeremy was trying to say. I'm curious to see how well the resale value holds up.
