Jezza, Hamster, Captain Slow & The Stig
Bugatti 16 C Galibier
This French concept car is exciting the masses with it’s sleek lines and overall look. Set for production in 2015, this $1.4 million dollar car (yes, you heard us, one-point-four) will come with a Veyron 1000+ horsepower W-16 engine with twin superchargers.
Our friends over at Anglophenia have reported today that the new Forza Motosport 4 has been released to rave reviews, which includes help from our very own Jeremy Clarkson. The Wall Street Journal says:
One hook with Forza has been its tie-in with the BBC’s Top Gear show. I loved listening to Jeremy Clarkson’s descriptions in Autovista and other integrations throughout races and other parts of the game. The whole thing just feels elegant and interesting, not at all forced.
This is shaping up to be a Christmas special we don’t want to miss. And is that a cello, viola, something- on the Mini?!
We already know that the Top Gear trio is heading to India for this year’s Christmas special, but up until now, we didn’t know what they will be driving. The show crew was spotted by Indian Autos Blog, as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May with their camera crew have covered the Mumbai-Jaipur journey and arrived in the capital, New Delhi.

I don’t know who made this, but it’s awesome. Very well done Caterham.
If you need something to travel the slow way (aka-snail mail), you’re in luck! Top Gear has their own set of stamps highlighting challenges from the show for the Isle of Man.
The Isle of Man Post Office is to release a series of stamps featuring vehicles created for challenges on the BBC2 television programme Top Gear. The six-stamp release will feature some of the more unusual vehicles created by presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May on the show. The vehicles include a caravan airship, a two-storey Citroen caravan and a Robin Reliant space shuttle. The stamps will be issued on 5 November. (via BBC News)
