Top Gear: Complete Season 13
The BBC series Top Gear has just released its 13th season of automotive fun on DVD.  Hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May enter a terrifying French ice race in low cost rear-wheel-drive coupés and James travels to America to spend a day with stunt-driving legend Ken Block. The boys are no less ambitious this season as Richard and James challenge the logistical might of Britain’s mail service by racing the new Porsche Panamera versus a stamped envelope across the British Isles and Richard stages the world’s first-ever race between the 1000 horsepower Bugatti Veyron, McLaren F1 and Lamborghini Murcielago SV in Abu Dhabi.

Elsewhere, Jeremy and James attempt to understand what makes a great Volkswagen advertisement – and then try to film one of their own. Plus, Jeremy gets chased by the British Army in some of its latest and most deadly toys and in a long-awaited television-first, the mysterious Stig takes off his helmet to reveal just who he really is.

The ongoing hit “Star in the Reasonably Priced Car” segment continues with Jay Leno, Olympic Gold Medal Sprinter Usain Bolt, Sienna Miller, AC/DC Singer Brian Johnson and more getting behind the wheel on the test track.

To whet your appetite, here is a clip of the three hosts engaging in one of their popular races:  steam train vs. car vs. motorcycle.  Which will reach the destination first? 


• Stig POV
• Spitfire Magic
• Ken Block: Slow Motion
• Extended Brian Johnson Interview
• Extended Jenson Button Interview
• Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4-SV 200 mph Run in   Abu Dhabi
• Train Race Sequence with JC

Top Gear Season 13 Blu-ray/DVD is available for purchase starting on Sept. 28.

Let's see if the BMW Vision (hybrid sports car with gullwing doors) makes it to the Frankfurt Auto Show. I'd love to drive that.

Corvette Z06 would be awesome. My husband is currently going through his midlife crisis at 50. He's been looking on the internet to buy a corvette ,actually he looks on the internet and dreams about owning one , but we can't afford it.

I would love to drive a new Corvette, thanks for the chance!

Mark N. said...

Definitely a Ferarri. I've done a corvette. They're nice, but not Ferarris are way beyond.

I'd want to drive the Bugatti Veyron and take it all the way to it's top speed.

southerngirl said...

I know it's probably a cliche answer, but if it's a one time chance, definitely the Bugatti Veyron!

Robyn said...

Gotta say the Bugatti Veyron. Gorgeous car, fast as (almost) anything. Maybe even the Ford Fiesta, if I could test drive it the way Jeremy did.

I have two cars. The Hammerhead Eagle iThrust or a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL God that is a sexy sexy car.

I would love to try out the reasonably priced car, because that would mean I was a celebrity and also that I would get to drive with the Stig. *Sigh* How cool would that be?
