Top Gear

Season 21 Episode 5

Series 21 Episode 5

EDIT

Full Episode Summary

Richard is in Abu Dhabi to drive the 886 bhp Porsche 918 Spyder around the Yas Marina F1 circuit. Stig also drives the Porsche and the McLaren P1 around the Top Gear track: if he can set a faster lap time for the Porsche, Jeremy has promised to change his name to Jennifer.

Speaking of Jennifer, 'he' drives the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf GTI and the BMW M135i. Meanwhile, in an unexpected move, Jeremy/Jennifer and James create a public information film to promote safer cycling. They present it to members of Westminster Council and former cyclist Chris Boardman, who won the gold medal for the Individual Pursuit at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.

Aaron Paul is the Star (apparently) in the Reasonably Priced Car.

Clarky tells Aaron that he is his daughter's favourite actor, Aaron says that he loves Clarky's daughter, Clarky says no you don't. Aaron's reaction was hilarious.

disappointed they didn't test both the p1 and the porsche. I would've thought they'd do that in the last few min. They better settle this on the first ep next series. Not that i'm complaining, but how come they are retreading some older 'skits' they did in the other series like the bike ad being similar to the vw ad and last week's pizza 'insulator' being similar to using the corvette engine as a blender. and when will they face their us counterparts? They've done so with australia and germany.

I was under the impression we'd get to see the two cars go at it this season. Disappointed also.

Can't wait for the McLaren / Porsche result. Apparently Clarky is comparing the new Golf GTI with the BMW M135i. This seems like an odd comparison as the Beamer is £5,000 more, has an extra turbo, the engine is 1 litre bigger and has 100hp more.
