    Top Gear Reminder

    On in an hour on BBC2, bet you al thought id fell off the side of the earth...no just had a late one with Mr Hatton last night!!

    Motoring news and views from the usual team. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are challenged to drive from the heart of Switzerland to the North Western coast of England on just one tank of fuel. As an incentive, the first one to arrive gets to turn on the Blackpool Illuminations.
    Back at the track, James tackles his first ever power test in the amazing Pagani Zonda F Roadster and, after years of waiting, The Stig finally gets to set a lap time in the remarkable Bugatti Veyron.

    About time they let top gear test it on the track!

    Although I wonder if the Bugatti will even come close to beating the lap times done by the reasonably priced car?

    I'm gonna say yes, it will beat the record. At the minute it's the Gumpert Apollo @ 1.17.1.
    650bhp 4.2 V8 twin turbo, real wheel drive, 1100 kg, 0-60 in 3 seconds.

    The Veyron weighs in with 987hp 8.0 quad turbo W16, 4 wheel drive, 2034kg, 0-60 in 2.5 seconds.

    Other thoughts?

    i dont think the veyron will beat the fastest car, cant remember what it is. i dont think it will handle the corners too well, though it might make up for it on the straights, should be a good watch though anyway. only 15mins left!!!

    Tough time for the veyron to beat at 1.17 IMO. It weighs nearly double the apollo and only 300 more bhp. I don't think it will do it TBH

    ye 1.17 is going to be a struggle. can remember when they sent an F1 car round and it did it in like 57seconds or something lol, less than minute anyway.
