How do you do that? Slithering around at 21 miles an hour. But because this is a family show, we can't show you what those sights were. The gods are on my side. The problem it has still is that Rooney flavour. This is a truly magnificent car. Tropez vypadá pořád jako za času Louise de Funése. But the best thing is the engine.
It's driving but just on nice roads. The big issue, though, is that electric steering. Eventually, we reached our overnight halt and I went for supper with my cultured colleague. So, when I go round the corner, one wheel spins and that's It. I've got soil in my ears! All right, well, if I'm faster, we carry on till dark. Come on, Clarkson, where are you? We'll have a race from here to Saint-Tropez but we'll stay the night, yes? And the materials, too, it's all genuine, a lot of real carbon fibre, real leather. This is more like it.
This is the perfect motoring trip. Then we thought we'd play our favourite game. I didn't much like the original Cayman, either, I called it the Cockster. Can you hear the exhausts from back there? Don't want to go in that Citroen. Jeden zajímavý kousek vedle druhého, a že se jich za celý díl vystřídá pěkná řádka. I know it sounds silly but once you go beyond 500-550 horsepower, you end up driving the car more slowly.
This is just embarrassing because where's going to be my sense of achievement when I thrash him? And back down to first. No history of rallying at all, it's one of the reasons I like it. He's better at it than I am. Now, this is no ordinary Veyron, this is the Grand Sport Vitesse. Really, the car is the cheapest option. But not here at Monza. What you don't get in Keswick are these.
Oh, good God, Look at this. While he's gone, let me show you the interior of the Pagani. But there must be a corner down there somewhere, otherwise you wouldn't be able to get down there again. Nevertheless, he likes it very much. Bugatti Veyron, I mean it's the other end of the scale, then.
I hear the sound of an approaching midget. You join me on a Fairline Squadron 78. Happily, a big crowd of Italian Top Gear fans then stopped him from getting into some old theatre so we could get back on the motorway. It's like travelling around with a garden chair. Nothing is faster than that.
The new 911 is called the 991, it's longer and wider than the previous 911. Uh, just need to be a bit careful about unleashing 730 brake horsepower. I'd have to move house. Ooh, this is pretty, Looking at all of these Italian things from my Italian grand touring supercar. Yes, you're getting a bit carried away. This is what I've got.
So we go and check in there, in a car, - on our perfect road trip. This is the critical point, for the first time, the steering is electric rather than purely hydraulic. Basically, what this is showing is that I am clearly a lot better at this than you. You can hear that deep, reassuring noise, it's like having Richard Burton in the boot, endlessly complimenting you on your hair and your clothes and your driving style. With that decided, we climbed back into our road cars for the final push to Pau. Soon, however, we were nearing our destination. I'm going to use a bit Less.
Z Benátek zamíří do francouzského Pau - města, kde se jela vůbec první Velká cena. A Lamborghini Aventador Roadster for Hammond and a Bugatti Veyron for me. Let's look at some pictures. Unfortunately, however, our headlong charge down the Alps was halted because we ran out of land. It doesn't really want to, do you know? Hammond was revelling in the new 917's grip.
I can't drive on loose surfaces. And I'm hearing that music now. Getting a proper move on. Three-and-a-half-litre V6, 276 brake horsepower, rear-wheel drive. Because that is where the first ever Grand Prix was held.
