Fans of car shows no doubt love Top Gear, but when it’s time to actually buy a car, Fifth Gear emerges the winner, combining great road tests with some very funny races. In the last few months, things have been quite rocky for the TV show, with plenty of rumors claiming that it will be canceled by Five TV, the channel which aired it.

After that, new rumors appeared according to which the show would move altogether to a new channel, or that one of its presenters, Tiff Needell, would get his own show.
