We always look forward to a new series of Top Gear, and expect bigger and better things from Messrs Clarkson, Hammond and May as every series unfolds. But news recently that Top Gear are on a budget had visions of antics being curtailed and locations being limited to the Home Counties, never mind the prospect of the quickest car of the series being the new Ford KA. But it looks like we needn’t have worried.
The whole Top Gear crew – including His Stigness the White Stig – have been spotted out playing in the United Arab Emirates with what looks like a mouth-watering selection of cars at their disposal. Which rather seems to suggest that the budget for the new series is not quite as small as we’d feared!
So what’s on offer on this jaunt? Well, it looks like they’ve got their hands on a Lamborghini LP670-4 SV, a Bugatti Veyron (who knows which one – there are so many now!), a McLaren SLR 722 and a McLaren F1. Which is a mouth-watering selection by any measure. By our reckoning it’s something north of £3.5 million of cars. Tight budget boys!
So it looks like we’ll be spared the ignominy of the Stig in a G-Whiz, and a token one and a half women on the Top Gear team for this series.
Business as usual. Thankfully!
