Top Gear Chaps Build Their Own Chevy Volt Killer—It’s a Good Laugh

top_gear_hammerhead

Top Gear is one of my all-time favorite shows. It never ceases to provide laughs and good entertainment while simultaneously managing to actually deliver useful content as well. My only gripe with it is that here in the States, we are always at least one season behind. So, while season 14 starts up on BBC in Britain, we’ll be lucky if we see the start of season 13 by February on BBC America.

That lag especially sucks right now because in episode two of season 14, which just aired in Europe, the Top Gear crew has built themselves a “car to save the world”—the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust. Due to the fact that BBC in Britain restricts video viewing from their website to Europeans, I can only bring you a mish mash of bits and pieces of the episode from youtube… but even without the full episode, there are plenty of laughs to be had.

Cheers and enjoy.

Due to BBC video restrictions, viewing the whole thing turns out to be quite complicated, but I’ve done my best to piece much of it together for you.

1) Watch the first video below to about 1:40

2) Click on this link and watch the whole video. This video starts at 1:40 in the first video (embedding is disabled for this video clip for whatever reason).

3) Watch the second video below for an “independent” test of the Hammerhead by autocar.co.uk.
