Has this episode aired yet? I must have missed it. Which episode was it?

I was waiting for them to drive it too....


EDIT: Oh, nevermind... this is the Z4M roadster one which I have already seen. I've been waiting for the M coupe

between the different drivers and different track conditions each time I'm not sure I put much weight behind their track times


I wouldn't buy an EVO if they were 20 grand, much less 35

Actually, it was the same driver and same track conditions. They only run tests with one driver and dry conditions on the same track.

track conditions also meaning track temperature...

I download top gear on a regular basis... first new episode aired tonight, and Im waiting for the torrent to appear on finalgear.com

Eh, My Koenigsegg CCX sits at the top of the lap board now, so I have no complaints!!!

I never could understand the meaning behind the foreign female voice interjections (and the weird humor) that accompany the race car driver shots.

I read on here somewhere that there were 2 different "stig"s

and I've seen the show, and the track can be sunny, dry, a swamp.....

and all they put is (wet)


if they did the test lape back to back then we'd have something

There are two different stigs... the new stig has been around since 2003 I believe...

Obviously its hard to do a back to back test for what is probably close to 75 cars, and introducing new ones each week...

Im sure the next few will be quite interesting... I like the 'mini projects' they did in the last few... They are entertaining, but it must be that they are running out of ideas and cars to test...

If it's what I think you're referring to; it's a weekly gag they've got going where the stig is learning new languages while he drives.. i think he's still learning italian. havn't seen the newest ep. yet; but in all of the season 8 episodes, that's what's playing in the background while he tears around the track.

Exactly. He is learning Italian on one of those CD courses. The commentary used to be about his musical preferences.

As a Brit I totally 'get it' but I have watched it with american friends who miss a lot of the jokes. To me it is one of the best shows on TV and can't wait to see how the Discovery Channel totally misses the point and screws up the US version.

Here - Stig has his own wikipedia page where all is explained: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Stig

Also, these shows (and the rival 'Fifth Gear') are ripped and slapped up on the web the day they air. The best place to start is www.finalgear.com
