Top Gear- Season 16

TOP GEAR

TOP GEAR

Jeremy, Richard and James talk about everything car-related. From new cars to how they're fuelled, this show has it all.

The show regularly features long-distance races. These typically feature Clarkson (or one of the other presenters) driving a car against other forms of transport.

 

The challenges usually involve Hammond and May taking the same journey by combinations of plane, train or ferry.

 

The feature is edited in an entertaining way to portray the result as close and to conceal the winner until the very end of the race (regardless of the actual closeness of the race).

 

The programme is estimated to have around 350 million viewers per week in 170 different countries and is heavily downloaded from peer-to-peer file-sharing services, with roughly 300,000 downloads per episode via torrent programs.

 

The show has received acclaim for its visual style and presentation, as well as criticism for its content and comments made by presenters.
