Fifthgear has already done that and declared Ferrari to be comprehensively better. None of the reviewers liked the McLaren.

The whole film was a tribute to the E-type and not a review so I guess that was kind of expected. I actually really enjoyed the E-type segment. BTW was it Fifth Gear that did a tribute recently as well? Driving from the Jaguar factory to Geneva. I hate to say it but Fifth Gear did a better job with it.

Top Gear has done the review months ago for the MP4. They have also come to the same conclusions.

So there will be two track tests of the MP4-12C? That doesn't seem right, somehow.

As Cyrus has already said, the SLS hasn't had a track test yet, although I do remember reading on some website that it posted a time of about 1:24 on the track.

Yes, I watched that as well. But TG reviews are somehow more fun, although a lot less informative.

the GTR got two Tests as well. One was the Race and track in Japan and one was the track test in the UK. This should be something similar. I think the comparison will have some kind of twist to it..

Default TOP GEAR returns with Season 17, E2

The boys were in cars a tad bit slower to the ones that I normally see around the Monaco track, but it was still spectacular!

They were talking about negative camber in the news, weren't they?

So,the next episode will have the most awaited 458 vs MP4 film.Evoque testdrive and race with some buggy sort of thing.And some cheap car-challenge yet again.
