Fun Corvette Z06 review by Top Gear

They pit the Z06 up against a wall of fire



Stig's test around the track, wait till you see the time he got...




Man what a beast this car is!

That episode was fun, especially when Stig did the final lap in the Leona! He beat Nigel Mansell by like 2 seconds.

How come you saw that episode in the US? It was only broadcast on the BBC in the UK on Sunday evening.

i really like this guys reviews. they are much more fun than Motorweeks. I liked the Koenigegeg or whatever review too, and the race against a line of fire on this z06 was just awesome.

He's one lucky guy.

Now that's funny

As an expat, I have a great love for the show. Just watched the first two episodes from the new season. Have every other episode on my external drive. Fifth gear too - Finalgear.com also has all the Fifth Gear episodes.
