I'm still waiting on my copy.

I actually bought a multi-region DVD player on Amazon, and ordered the DVD from Amazon UK, just to watch this whole thing. I'm very curious about the BAC Mono.

Here's a few. Not sure if the whole clip is there. "This isn't performance, this is time travel!" :)
Not, its not a fulll clip on MP4-12C. Later he does the drag race against GT3 RS, again praises how wonderful that car is, presents the brand McLaren whoopee cushion he got with the car, just to end with his "soulless supercar" mantra. Next car he presents is a Nissan GTR.

No, the drag race is against GT2 RS (not GT3), and MP4 handily wins.

Yes I mistyped. Them Porsches are so easy to confuse by their looks and names ;).

I wonder why he didnt run the 12c in that fastest corner speed test. Maybe becouse that would spoil his theory about how fast the GTR is?

Looked like quarter mile or maybe longer. Mp4 is comfortably ahead the whole time. Remember, though, it's Clarkson. He'll do anything for a story.

Sounds like he is a journalist then ! :)

@ 177 mph I would say more like 1/2 mile

Oh...you have to download the full version from the link on the youtube video and you get the whole segment.

"you can bring any volkswagen (including GT2RS) to the party and it is going to lose, and lose badly!"

Anyone know how to burn Region 2 DVD onto Region 1 discs? I could make a few copies for you guys.

They left the 12C out of the bit about corner speed. The GTR certainly seemed fast.
