I was wondering the same Suhaas. Jezza's favoritest car in the whole wide world doesn't get a shot at the track? Weird.

I finished watching the fourth ep as well. Hilarious!


Cheers!!

I'm hoping they feature the Jaguar XJ-L SuperSport soon. I'm really looking forward to that.

Great season so far. The humor has been fantastic, even though it got a little out of hand a few episodes earlier.
I was wondering about the SLS too, although I doubt it'll have a phenomenal time on the board. And I can't wait for the 959 v/s F40 shootout. Hope its sometime soon. And no significant power-tests this week either.

Let's just hope that they're saving the best for last. The 959 vs. F40, power-tests et al.

The SLS and the new Porsche 997 GT3 RS have appeared one time too many on TG. The SLS, I reckon, should post a time that's about a second slower than the 458.

The SLS has appeared just the one time, I guess.

Oh yeah. But it was the star of Clarkson's film, The Italian Job. Which, if I may add, was absolutely fantastic! In some ways, the film summaries all the new cars that were featured in some of the episodes in the 15th Season and the 16th Season.

Episode 6 will have the Jag XJ in it. It will also have the Porsche 959 and the Ferrari F40. Three cars that I love, no end! Gonna be a dream episode for me.

Done with episode 5.Didn't quite enjoy it.Don't know what exactly is the matter with TG this season.Where have all the supercars gone? There were quite a lot of them..

Dominator bit was interesting but again we don't watch TG for harvesters and sensible things.M3 clip didn't entertain me either,except for the surprising power-slide entry of the M3..RS4 is 'rubbish'!

I am really expecting some great cars in the coming episodes,like the 959 and the F40..

Any ideas how many episodes we'll have this season.We are down 5 episodes now and there hasn't been something really very interesting.I guess,maximum of 2 episodes are left.Or the sixth would be the last one..?? .:(

Episode 4 was a downer after episode 3, I still cant understand the stupid comaprison they did with the 3 BMW convertibles.

The film on Zonda was nice.

Episode 5 was again a mixed one, the Snow Mobile bit was entertaining, informative & silly all at the same time

The M3 vs RS4 was ok till they were showing M3 only

The SIARPC was a good surprise, this lady is really different from the usual guests they get.

I thought the CP M3 would be faster than the stock M3. BMW would definitely not release a version that is slower than the stock M3. Some other reviews in youtube shows the one with CP is significantly faster around a track.

Ep.5 was quite boring. Very little humor and less "car-stuff". When are they coming back with challenges like the train vs. GTR or Veyron vs. airplane.

5th Episode episode was boring. Are they just going through the motions this season ?
Interesting guest though. I will have to watch that stupid movie Drive Angry now.

Read on another forum that when James was asked where he would like to go for a TG style challenge he replied : India and Australia.

The last episode should be awesome. 959 vs F40 will be really fantastic to watch!! And there is a race coming in the next episode. Jeremy will race an XJ vs the Sun!

Episode 5 was boring.

The M3 is now getting old on the small screen. The Audi A5 does look fantastic! The snow plow clip was fun to watch but was starting to get draggy!

I practically grew up listing after these two cars! The season finale will be a cracker!

Unhappy Re: Top Gear Season 16

It's official. This Sunday marks the last episode of the current series.

I somehow haven't enjoyed the current series at all. I hope the final show makes up for it. And so far, it looks the deal. oh! the F40 & the XJ.

Transmission – BBC Top Gear The final show of the series: a sneak preview
