Top Gear Series 7 Episode 5

On fastest-and-most-expensive-ever Top Gear, Jeremy got behind the wheel of the world’s most superlative-laden and talked about car, the Bugatti Veyron. The Stig attempted to answer the great two-wheel-drive versus four-wheel-drive debate. And a clean-shaven Nigel Mansell showed us he’s still got it.

You know the problem: you want a Porsche, but which one? Some people say the two-wheel drive 911 is good enough. So when Porsche produced the Carrera 4 some said ‘erm, why?’, and others said ‘ohhh, yah!’.

So which IS the better car? We unleashed the Stig on a rally special stage to find out.

Stig preferred the two-wheel. But then some say he can smell corners.

The Veyron managed to achieve the impossible: a car so good even Jeremy couldn’t find fault with it. The Bugatti is to cars what Concorde was to planes: something that will be recorded in the history books as a feat of human endeavour. And the best thing is, even Clarkson can’t afford to buy one.

Formula One legend and fast driving chappie Nigel Mansell showed us how it’s supposed to be done in a Liana. He got the fastest lap time ever. We suspect Nigel’s fantastic speed was partly down to his new aerodynamic, moustache-free look.

Challenge: Epic Race: Bugatti Veyron versus Cessna 182 Private Plane from Alba, Italy to London. RWD vs AWD Porsches debate settled.
