  • This is truly a classic episode of Top Gear, the motorheads who present, and the cars they love as they race supercars across France.

    This is truly a classic episode of Top Gear, the BBC show which gives a humerous look at the high-end auto world of Europe.

    In this episode, Jeremy (the tall goofy one), Richard (Hamster, the short, cute one), and James (Captain Slow - the nerdy one) each take a supercar (Ford GT, a Zonda, and a Ferrari, respectively) for a drive from northern France, through Paris, south to the Millau Bridge, the highest bridge in the world. Along the way, they rip on each other\'s cars and each other, revealing much of their personalities along the way. This show will even make a non-car afficianado love these New Age Chariots.moreless

    • Jeremy Clarkson: But for me, the best super car is the Ford GT. I like it so much, I actually bought this one twice.
      Richard Hammond: You bought it twice, because it kept breaking down and you sent it back.
      Jeremy Clarkson: What ever...

    • Richard Hammond: Look! A petrol station - the natural home territory of the Ford GT. And there it is, at the watering hole, drinking its fill for the forty-seventh time today.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: We're not really a nation of zinc kitchen surfaces and brushed aluminium. We're more a nation of Wetherspoons, Heat magazine and chlamydia.
