Silly and opinionated, Top Gear's unique approach to motoring entertainment is powered by big ideas that never quite work properly or, at the very least, catch fire a bit before they do. Now Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond — oh, and barely-tame racing driver The Stig — return with and another batch of tyre-smoking, lap-record-breaking, ambitious-but-rubbish car stuff. It's pedal to the metal time again in Series 7 with the boys off to Isle of Man to decide which is best, an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, BMW M6 or a Porsche 911 Carrera. They also discover whether you can buy a decent Italian supercar for under £10,000. James May and Richard Hammond race from Italy to London in plane against Jeremy Clarkson who is in a Bugatti Veyron. Richard also faces a very chilly challenge to outlast a car at sub-zero temperatures. And in the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car, Nigel Mansell proves he's still got what it takes.
