Top Gear Season 13 Episode 4 |

Last night I finally had time to watch the latest Top Gear episode which was really entertaining, as usual. The episode debuted with Jeremy presenting the new Ford Focus RS, which seems to be an incredible car. I remember reading about it in the Top Gear magazine and Jeremy was very impressed with it. But of course, Richard must mess with Jeremy’s tastes, because he challenges him and his RS to race a Renault Megane R26R. After a few laps where they also exchange cars, they both agree both cars are fun to drive, with a little plus for the RS (even though the Megane was faster around the track), which is much more practical than the Renault. Watch this part here.

After the news part, Richard and James went on and tries to raced the Royal Mail service in the new Porsche Panamera. How exactly did they do that? Well, they sent a letter from the Scilly Isles (the most south-westerly part of Britain) to Orkney Islands, up in the north and then tried to see if they could beat it in the Panamera. We’re gonna let you watch the race (part 1 and part 2) and see who won.

After this part, it was time for the “celebrity in a reasonably priced car” part, where Jeremy had the fastest man on Earth, Usain Bolt, as his guest. Bolt, which is a big car fan, was very funny and he even talked about his BMW M3, which we wrote about some time ago and about the recent crash he was involved in. Watch this part here.

As for the final part of the show, there was Jeremy racing a Mitsubishi Evo VII (this one) against some “creatures” from the British army. I don’t know why, but I didn’t really liked this part as it seemed to be a little too staged for my tastes. Still, this part was also pretty entertaining and you can watch it here (part 1) and here (part 2).

Below is the Focus RS presentation and the race against the Megane R26R. Enjoy!
