  2. The Clarkson Review

    Alfa Stelvio
    In today's Times and he really likes it. It takes time to learn to think your way round corners, but when you get there, I must say this is a genuinely exciting car to drive. It doesn’t feel as cumbersome as all the other SUVs, and you get the impression it was engineered by people who were...
  3. Clarkson on Crossovers

    General Motoring Discussion
    It's not very often I agree with Clarkson, but for me his comments in yesterday's Sunday Times on the Seat Ateca & crossovers in general hit the nail on the head. Under the headline "Whatever you ask, this isn't the answer" he said: "The trouble is that, these days, absolutely everyone wants a...
  4. Clarkson loves the Giulia QV (Sunday Times)

    Alfa Giulia
    In his words What I’m saying here, in this straight, no-cocking-about road test, is that Alfa Romeo has made a car dynamically better than the BMW. And it has. It really has. This is Iceland beating England. And I couldn’t be more pleased. He goes on to say the M3 has wonky steering and...
  5. More from Jeremy Clarkson

    Alfa Giulia
    The punchline's at the end... FHM not for Alfa males ''NOT that long ago, FHM, the men’s magazine, was selling nearly a million copies a month. But figures show that back in the summer, its circulation had dropped to less than a tenth of that and now it’s gone to join Loaded, Nuts and Zoo in...
  6. Clarkson in hot water as usual

    South Africa
    Clarkson canned: Did he punch producer? | Wheels24 Publicity stunt ? Or the last of Top Gear and Clarskon. Personally - I like top gear and Clarkson.
  7. At last, Clarkson talks sense.

  8. Clarkson reckons 4C wont work - then says he loves it

    4C & 4C Spider
    Was just watching an old episode of Top Gear and they introduced the 4C for the first time. Hammond introduces the 4C as mid engine RWD 1.7 Turbo etc Then Clarkson said he didn't like it and said "make it go away, it wont work" and to bring back the Alfa Spider with Dustin Hoffman. Then...
  9. Clarkson - what am I missing?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, In an article in the Sunday Times about the new Alfa, he mentioned in passing various Alfas and I quote, 'the ghastly Mito'. Now I've just had another test drive of a Mito (MA135 Distinctive this time) and loved it, so I've been looking for the right one of these to buy. But I can't help be...
  10. Jeremy Clarkson 4C review

    South Africa
    MY coffee machine is a complete and utter pain in the backside. It’s a wall-mounted Gaggia and I cannot recall a single occasion when, after pushing the button, I have taken delivery of a cup of actual coffee. It always wants water, and after you’ve filled up its bowl, it says: “Empty trays.”...

  13. No points for Mito from Jeremy Clarkson

    Alfa MiTo
    JC has given the Mito TA an absolute pasting in the motoring section of the Sunday Times under the heading "So awful I wouldn't even give it to my son" ! I actually think the bloke is a complete **** so not bothered .But anyone thinking of adding Mito to a list of cars they might try will...
  14. Clarkson on the Mito, 159, and new cars

    General Alfa Discussion
    Interesting article in today's Sunday Time, the Mito 875cc Twin Air Distinctive got 0/5 stars, and: However, he is clearly a fan of the 159: Interestingly he thinks that Alfa should (if he ran it): Has he been reading the news about the Mazda-Alfa tie up on the MX-5, or seen the 4c?
  15. Big Smile on a Sunday - Thank you Clarkson

    General Alfa Discussion
    OK this forum is a wealth of stuff relating to problems of our marque and model and I guess sometimes we think what on earth have we done? But I had to smile this morning: Reading the Sunday Times Driving supplement, centre pages and Clarkson is testing the Mito875 TwinAir; it gets no stars...

  17. About Clarkson

    Way Off Topic
    Having seen his infamous joke in context on YouTube, it really seem like he was joking, although distastefully. Isn't he being bashed for every distastefulness he has said the last many years, right now?

  19. Rare clarkson vid of the 147 GTA

    Alfa GTA
    From his own reviews, he did this around the same time as the official top gear review. I haven't seen that before. Would love to see what he thought if one had a Q2.
