I have the entire collection; right from Season 1 to Season 16, including all the TG and Clarkson movies and special episodes: '10 Italian Job, Supercar Showdown Heaven & Hell, '08 Thriller, '09 Duel, Hammond's '09 Uncovered and the latest '10 TG Apocalypse!

I really don't think there is any pen-drive that is large enough for it! Yes, it's about 70 GB!

PM me if you're interested. Perhaps I could drop by with my external HD when free.

One of my Top Gear favorites are the Polar & Bolivia Special donít remember which season they belong. A must watch if you are a TG fan and if you are not I bet you will become one after watching these amazing shows. Comparatively I feel the Middle east special was just average by TG standards.

Hats off to the TG folks and creative production team for coming up with such creative, adventurous and humorous episodes year after year .

Default Top Gear (2011) on BBC Entertainment in India

Top Gear new season on BBC Entertainment Wednesdays 10 pm IST.
Last night Wednesday 12th had JC driving the Bentley Supersports and finally describe it as an oceanliner trying to be a speedboat, as opposed to an Aston DBS (" a speedboat designed to be one" or words to that effect), plus JM driving as close as possible to an active volcano in Iceland in a Toyota Hilux.

The rest of the stuff seemed contrived, at least to me ( viz., pulling the plug on a Chevy Lacetti, aka Chevy Optra in India by blasting-collapsing tall chimneys to entomb it and so on).

The comparos between petrolheads cars attracts me most to TG.

Regards, drive safe

And a heck of a show it was! Though the episode is old (from 1st quarter of 2010), I couldn't stop drooling over the custom Hilux.

I have watched the American special 6-7 times till now and enjoy it EVERY single time! Top Gear is no longer just a TV show. It is so much more!

If you're referring to the one with the SLS, 458, and 911 GT3 RS then that was designated as 15x07.

16x01 is also out, and thats the one where they do the journey of the Three Wise Men to Bethlehem, aka 'The Middle East Special'.

Not sure whether this episode really is the first episode of Season 16, or just a Special that they do between seasons. Most sites report it as 16x01, but who knows?

These are my favourites.
Bolivia Special
Polar Special
Botswana Special
Vietnam Special

Am I missing any other specials.
These specials make you just want to go out and have a similar experience. Makes us feel, we are missing so much in life, just tangled into work.

Default Top Gear Season 16

Seeding New series Jan 2011

Top Gear season 16 is coming (has there really been that many?) and the gang is promising as many new and ridiculous stunts as their middle-aged bodies can handle.
Helicopter landing on a pad attached to the roof of a moving car? Check.
Richard Hammond screaming at the camera while driving some monstrous machine on wheels? Check.
James May looking his usually disheveled self? Check.
And finally Jeremy Clarkson and his two side kicks standing before an overweight chap lying on the ground in his undies?
