Default 5th Gear : S8 EP5 : Nov 7th

On tonight's show, Jason Plato test-drives the Aston Martin DB9 Volante; the most expensive cars in the world as featured in the popular auto magazine Max Power, and Tiff Needell with the latest on our 200mph Lotus. Plus Vicki Butler-Henderson pays tribute to the underrated Honda NSX.
Lets see which bit of the lotus breaks this week then

I still have my bet on the gearbox unless they cheated and spent the last 6 months manufacturing a custom one

Looking forward to the DB9 Volante feature from Jason.

I look forward to see the NSX. Pretty cool car in my book and I like watching "old" cars getting tested.

I dunno how Plato can say anything good about the Volante since he drove the Zonda and also because not many journalist seem to like the way the Volante drives. But we will see.

I hope the DB9 Volante doesn't break down and "force" the 5th gear crew to stop filming like with CCR :roll:

and what about Jon Bentley, he didn't showed up yesterday he's probably preparing something for this show - what about another boring crash tests agains a brickwall??
^^^^ LMAO
i can see the program line now "John Bentley aqua-planes into a traditional brick wall, versus a new high tech energy absorbant brick wall" :roll:

If the previous show - with the CCR - couldn't shine, i don't see how this one will... I hope i'm wrong though

I doubt they will have the Lotus ready for Tiff to drive. They will probably stretch out the story over many episodes. Either way they'll never top last weeks episode after the sound of the Zonda F :violin:
