On Sunday night, Top Gear featured a road test of the new Fiat 500 in Budapest, racing across the city against two BMXers. Because the god(esse)s are cruel, we don’t get the current season of Top Gear or the Fiat here in the US, but you can see a clip here.
Last season of Top Gear is
airing on BBC America. It’s not the typical car-magazine-formatted-for-tv that you might be used to; the hosts, Clarkson, Hammond, and May offer a unique take on car culture and perform the most unique and interesting (and sometimes hilarious) tests of cars ranging from the econobox Fiat to the most brazen supercars the world have to offer like the Bugatti Veyron. You can find clips in the usual places on the internet, so I suggest you start doing some searches. Some fun ones to try might be “Top Gear Lotus vs. Apache” or “top gear killing a toyota”. Fecking brilliant.
