    Tonight on Top Gear James visits Volkswagen's top-secret test track in Germany to get the Bugatti Veyron to its maximum speed; Over 300mph... Hugh Grant tests his skills on the track; the guys test drive coupes in Scotland.

    Glad to see a thread on Top Gear; easily one of the five best programs on American TV right now (that still show new episodes).

    Looking forward to this one.

    I was pleased they kept running the seasons. the Veyron piece is amazing.

    This is a great show, however the veyron is only good for 254mph not 300+.

    This show sounds right up my alley. I'm off to set up a Season Pass. Thanks for the tip. :up:

    That was a fun episode, but the Veyron only went 250 mph (hah, "only"!).

    Sorry I was thinking of something else when I type it. I ment to say 400 kph. Hell anyway I would love to take that thing for a drive. Anyone know what it costs?
    This is the funniest show on TV. the wife and I just about died (from Laughing)when they went on the RV trip a couple of weeks ago. And next week they come to america, They may get shot down here in the south. lol

    Slight swerve here (pun intended) but a $1.6 million Bugati model was featured for a few minutes on the second hour of the premier of Fox Business Network on Monday. They built up to the reporter's actually sitting in the car...but, it wouldn't start. ;)

    In the UK, it's about 850k UKP and here, it's around $1.5 million. However, Volkswagen loses around 4 million on each one sold as they cost around 5 mil to build!
