Better than a 458. Better than anything he's had his grubby little hands on. Guess the PR folks are finally figuring out how to talk the talk.

6E,James is one of us,a true petrolhead,he may be a top chef by profession,but he took an old Maserati A6gcs on the historic mille miglia a couple of years ago (his co-driver was pretty cute,from what i remember),an interesting program to watch if you can find it.
So if he wants one,im chuffed.(thats madeup in yorkshire speak)
Oh,that reminds me i think he might be a yorkshireman.

Good to know, Andy. Don't worry I'm just entertaining myself by poking fun at the press in general and exercising my favourite new word: Numpty!! Feeling a tad cynical these days but I have nothing against these dudes individually. Well, okay Plato and Tiff are idiots.

I seem to recall he blew the engine on the Mille Miglia, despite being warned the the tappets were suspect, and it cost him a £200k? rebuild.

Definitely went home motivated to go back to work! He has the car bug bad.......

....opens up into what must be the most advanced car production line on Earth. I’ve been to the Ferrari factory; it doesn’t compare

just jealous and sad..their racing careers never took them where they really wanted to be ( although they are both fantastic racers in their own right), and the three blokes that just doss about have a TV show with 100 times the ratings and following of 5th gear. The few times Ive "HAD" to watch the show i always though it should be called "Missed Gear"
