    Don't know if it was my eyes, but did they blur the windows on the Porsche/Ferrari bit in places. I assume it was where Hammond wasn't driving, and they had got some extra footage.

    Either that or i imagined it!

    maybe omega dont want to be associated with him!

    I'm sure Top Gear have said before that they do they 'challenges' twice. Once to do the challenge, then again so they can get the relevant shots

    I didn't notice it, but I did see a lot of sun glare on the windows in some points.

    They do often use crew members to drive the cars for shots whilst the presenters have to do something else though.
  • That Jag was lush.

    you mean Jaaaaaaaaaag, surely!
  • sheepsteethsheepsteeth Posts: 17,418 Webster
    i really liked the jag, i even thought it was good looking but that concept version he showed an image of was very cool but not particularly jaguary

    i really liked the bit with the f40, that was a very cool looking motor.
  • my mistake! Jaaaaaaaaaag!

    But, i liked the Audi from last week, purely because of the little drop of petrol in the exhausts to make that awesome sounds :lol:
    All fake and does nothing apart from burn more fuel, but sounds mint!

    Why the hell does the Jaaaaaaaaaag have a 1,200W sound system though? There's no reason for that. It's just stupid specs to look impressive on a spec list.

    Does make for some nice boom boom though. Some people are obsessed with loud music, myself included, so would love to have that!

    But the 1200W system isn't really 1200W - it's the total "Wattage" of all the different speakers! :(

    The 959 was my favorite bit - real shame they couldn't give it a proper spanking round the track though :(

    Dunno how old Hammond is but the 959 and f40 were my childhood dream cars :) very nice to see them in a sort of show down.
    Oh those and the Jaaaaaaaag XJ220 which was finally released when I was 8

    Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    According to some other people/PH the owners of the cars were driving.

    I think the 1200w stereo was a response to the 1000w bose kit in the A8! Bigger numbers are better right?
