Everyone has an opinion on bad cars... Now it’s time to hear the ones that really count – ours...As it’s the worst car in the history of the WORLD, we’re on our travels ... to the North of England ... to name and shame the most rubbish car from a manufacturer which, frankly, should have known better.But, it’s not all about hateful cars ... Oh no. You have to revel in some good ones to appreciate the stinkers. There’s the Ferrari 458 spider, Toyota’s GT86 and the £340,000 Lexus LFA rubbing shoulders with a Mercedes SLS.Our guest driver, The Stig’s Yorkshire cousin, puts his whippet to one side and throws a BMW M5 round a gymkhana course before we have a go in a couple of Transatlantic challengers. Things don’t go well. We spend treasured leisure time on the golf course continuing our debate. That doesn’t go well either. We even put our own cars – past and present – into the reckoning. That ends badly too. We argue over the great and the awful from Peugeot, Ford, Mahindra, FSO, Alfa Romeo, Rolls Royce, Porsche, Citroen, Saab ... and many more. And we have a special, surprise fate in store for the car we pick as our biggest loser... Enjoy... Jeremy Clarkson & James May




  • Brilliant but the price...

    By Dooey!!!
    Completely brilliant but the price for it is just too big and I expect would put many people off. The last special was only 7 quid and in standard definition this is 11. Clarkson should definitely do these every time, he makes Top Gear what it is.
  • Cynical cash generator

    Well, what a disappointment. Maybe I was expecting too much for my FIFTEEN POUNDS AND NINETY NINE PENCE! But was this thing done on a cheap budget or what? I mean I don't always expect California or Bali but Darlington Football Club car park in the rain...the premise of the worst car in the world probably help too as the collective value of the sheds used will surely save a bundle. Apart from the borrowed Ferrari 458 obviously. The format is tired and full of the normal top gear cliche, I would have hoped there would have been just a hint of newness in the format but no and boy oh boy is it getting tired now. I hope Jeremy and James are having a great Xmas spending the proceeds, Richard Hammond was probably a budget stretch too far but might, just might have made the difference. But then again maybe he read the script and thought better of it. If only I knew how to get a refund I would.
  • Great series OUTRAGEOUS price

    By Mr slowly
    Title says it all. The episode itself (like clarkson and may) is really good but the price is too high.
  • It's the best special they've done yet but 15quid!!!

    By ThePMeenan
    Much better these two host a special than may and Hammond, but this taking the p..... It's a rip off at this price so no usual 5 stars
  • Money

    If you have no budget get it
  • Quite disappointing

    By farmerpug
    Not one single bit of excitement in this video, Jeremy uses a variety of tired metaphors to describe cars we know he hates. There was no good demolition stunts either, they just concluded if a car was rubbish and that was it. The only destruction was a morris marina falling on something (it was funny the first time it happened not anymore). The ending terrible, in essence the worst car in the world got parked at someones house, that was it. I have been a top gear fan since the start, but this was truly awful.
  • The Price!!!

    By Kateymarsh
    I haven't bought this one, as its £11 for one hours entertainment, thats more than going to the movies and the movies are longer!! All the other reviews have said its not worth it, so I havent bothered
  • To exspensive

    By ashleigh fern

  • Top gear

    Really really good + quite funny too
  • What a load of toss

    By winky8898999
    Was really looking forward to this but was disappointed. Clarkson and Captain slow test a few crap old cars (for what must have cost peanuts) and some newer crap ones for a few peanuts more. Then, without any real consistency come up with a spurious conclusion that although I agree with in part, we know there must be crapper cars out there.
