In French, "grosse" is BIG. So i am sure instead of saying MB Pullman, He just said Big. Because it is a BIG car!! Jezza's Jokes??? I think so!!
Mercedes Benz 600 Grosser is an unofficial name given to it. Even the Mercedes Benz 770 was known as Grosser.
But I love the car. The whole 5th Episode was good.

Thanks for the info F50. I wonder if we have 600's lying around the country?

Also did anyone else find May's pronounciation of the i10 hilarious? "Hyundai Aiyo!!!!"

Well filming of the first season has already started. The First episode will air a race from SanFransico to LV i think...

Season 11 over
the last episode was great , except for the challenge between top gear and a german group. which was simply Amazing .
The best episode in a long time.

Cant wait till October for the next season to begin. ( Yes it is gone till October )

And ya withing this 2-3 weeks. Have downloaded all episodes from season 1 to season 11 except a few ( to be precise 3, of which torrents weren't available )

Top Gear Rocks.!

episode 6 was the best of the current season.

the awsome 3 some is back at their crazy antics. something which i believed was missing in the earlier 5 episodes.

top gear is not a car review show its a pure MAD house. and i love it

hammonds reply to that 'man in suit' when he won was brilliant.

and stiggie again proved hes the best. long live stig. long live top gear.

I loved this episode.The best of this season.The brits vs germans challenge was damn fun.Also Gumpert Apollo made it to the top of the leader board.But i have to disagree on one thing.The Apollo is a looker.It's not at all ugly.Hats off the the germans and audi!Top Gear rules.

Watching Stig save the day just when all hope's lost was amazing. The situation was similar during that british endurance race too. Its almost a scene out of a hollywood movie. WOW!

Gentlemen, is there any way one could get DVD's of TOP GEAR ? I have tried at music stores here in Gurgaon but have not been able to find any.

Being my favourite programme that can be watched over & over I'd be glad to own the set of DVD's

Any leads ?


Thanks

well i would say the easiest thing to do is to check if any of the guys in your vicinity have it.
i have no idea about the shows but jeremy's videos are available overseas.
and finally you can always DOWNLOAD
good luck

Man I had no idea James May could drive that fast. They should probably use him instead of the Stig for the Power Lap timings.

Talk about Captain Slow, he's actually the opposite. And against a professional racing driver!

Last episode of the season brilliantly done, one of the best so far.
