Top Gear - Sunday 8 July



In episode two James goes to VW’s top secret test track in East Germany with one very special mission: to take the Bugatti Veyron up to its top speed of 252mph. He achieves with consummate ease and a stiff upper lip, although it did make his eyes water a bit. It’s also worth pointing out that this makes Jeremy our third fastest presenter. Small coupes are all about looking good. Golf, on the other hand, is all about wearing brightly coloured trousers and looking absolutely ridiculous. However, this didn’t stop the Top Gear team taking the latest fashionable offerings from Audi, Mazda and Alfa Romeo to the links for a round of pitch and putt.

The boys then head off to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art to get an expert opinion on design and styling. Each presenter has just a few minutes to persuade a panel of arty professors that their car deserved a place on a plinth in the museum. And floppy-haired British heart-throb Hugh Grant is an A-list star in a C-list car when he takes a Lacetti for a spin. His lap was pretty good, but it was his foul-mouthed swearing that really impressed.
