I'm quite disappointed Stig's Chinese Cousin was just wearing white, unlike Stig's Communist Cousin that we saw in the Vietnam Special outtakes

About time I'm back on air! :shiftdrive:
Some say that I break into people’s houses at night and leave two mysterious extra keys in a kitchen drawer.

And that as a result of buying Pirelli condoms this week, I now have seventeen children.

All we know is, I'm called The Stig

I was in the audience. After the appalling catastrophe that was the India Christmas special, I'm very pleased to say that this episode is a stunning return to form.
No mucking about, no scripted jokes, just genuine love for three awesome supercars: Aventador, MP4-12C and Noble M600.

For once, there's some serious driving involved and not a single caravan was harmed in the making of the episode.

Well worth watching.

That sounds like an interesting comparison. How many episodes are scheduled for this season?

I agree... India special was one of the worst episodes ever. Can't all be the best episode, tho. It just won't ever be one I will want to view again.

They are running a typical 7-episode season.

True, but at least they run two seasons a year. I'm sure we all could enjoy even more episodes, but in terms of covering a variety of new car models, 14 shows is a lot of air time. My biggest fear is what will happen when Jeremy, James, or Richard decide to retire. It will be hard to replace the excellent dynamic they have and still maintain the quality of entertainment everyone has come to enjoy.

Awesome episode. And my god, the Aventador is unbelievable. It made the McLaren and the Nobel look pedestrian. I usually don't like red cars but I was drooling the whole episode. V12, all wheel drive and incredible looks, who couldn't like this thing? Forget the Veyron and all the others, I think this is the greatest car ever made. Who's with me? :shiftdrive:

+100000 on the Aventador!! ..

Sad about the Noble clutch f-up! ... Noble must have lost a few buyers after this episode aired!

For me, I am in disagreement. I thought all three cars were amazing. I already really liked the Aventador, but for a while expected the McLaren to win me over during the show. There is a lot about it to like. But ultimately, all the show did was make me want an Aventador even more than I already did. Guess I need to keep saving my change. :lol:
