Top Gear Top Test
Not only do I think that the BBC’s Top Gear is good automotive programming, I think it’s some of the best TV out there. I wanted to share Jeremy Clarkson’s test of the new Ford Fiesta because, in the dark corners of the automotive blogosphere that I visit, it has been praised as the funniest road test ever done. The last scene had me laughing like an insane person (starts 8 minutes in).
And, while I’m at it – why doesn’t Ford offer the German-built Fiesta here? If I needed a car I’d certainly consider, and probably buy, the sport version. At any rate, enjoy:
