At least the car has been spotted recently so they haven't shot it with a tank gun. Those crazy guys...

Tonoght? Nope. But I think there was a red 156 GTA at the start of the hill climb parked next to the hut thing.

Surely they would have filmed that ages ago to allow for editing etc?

They edit items on Top Gear?

Next thing you'll be telling me is that they work from a script, .

Looking forward to it, hopefully some nice things are said rather than the usual tiered stereotypes

I'm really looking forward to tonights episode, I might come across like I don't like the 4C but nothing could be further from the truth, it is my desktop wallpaper on my laptop after all.

I just think it's a fairly one dimensional car, I bet it awesome to drive and epic fun but would you want to drive one every day or go on holiday in it unless the holiday was the sort where driving was the focus and you wanted a car that could deliver.

I hope to drive one at some point, and that might change my mind for better or worse, but presently with nowhere to put a 3rd car (which lets be honest is what the 4C is) it's nowhere on my shopping lust (typo intentional).

I really do hope it is as fun to drive as I expect, but I wont be putting money down without driving one. Might be 5 years down the line but some day I might have one dependent on circumstances.

I would be interested to know the difference in feel of a carbon tub car compared to steel or aluminium . In the same way my Reynolds 531 tubed bike feels more resilient than my alloy framed machine . I hope Hammond passes on his experience ...

I feel that the presenters have become complacent but at least there was a return to fantastic imagery this week.
