There’s a host of cars on Top Gear, as Hammond tests out the auto-parking system in the Lexus LS600 before racing the Bugatti Veyron against a Eurofighter Typhoon, while May finds his favourite car of the year in the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé. Elsewhere, Clarkson is finding out how fast and exciting the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is, before squeezing into the world’s smallest car (back then), made by the Isle of Man, the Peel P50, and taking it for a drive inside BBC Television Centre, while Rolling Stones’ legend, Ronnie Wood, sees if he can be fast in the reasonably priced car.
