Top Gear is back with a shiny new series and on your screens Sundays at 8pm on BBC Two (if you're in the UK).
Ariel Atom 4 (Wet) Time: 01:25.3
UK or not though - here's The Stig wrestling the brand-new Ariel Atom 4 around the Top Gear track*. With the new Civic Type R engine, it's a torque-y monster and the conditions were... um... less than perfect. Stig's sideways antics remind us all: we are not worthy!
*Sorry about the camera movement!

    • You’ve got to stop dicking around and only showing the hot laps online. You build up excitement in the show and then ..... nothing. Please go back to including the lap footage in the show. Otherwise the show is on top form.

  • When Stig has difficulties with handling this car on the track; what would the normal driver do on the streets - accident waiting to happen.

    • Sort of agree really I do believe the old stig Ben Collins pushed cars to the limit and made corrections better than this stig. Also I really don't understand this stig's line into 2nd to last, he seems to lose so much speed on the way in. No doubt he was pushing it here but he could've given it a lot more on... most of the corners!

  • The sound of disappointment, why put a turbo instead of a supercharger or better still a proper naturally aspirated engine.

    Amir BrightAmir Bright9 måneder siden
  • What should be the best TV broadcast for motor patients cannot publish a video with a quality worthy of a 12 year old boy on the first day of video on a soap box. Come on guys call Atom back and shoot a video worthy of the name! Hope in a dry circuit too.

    Misha W.Misha W.9 måneder siden
  • The reason the atom looks all over the place is because it is on super hard dry racing tyres which have no grip in the wet. I have an atom 4 with racing wets and it is way more grippy than that.

  • Mounting an onboard camera on a stabilizer rig is a huge sin. What are you going to focus on, the person that drives the car with the interior or the scenery?

  • Correcting the steering on the straight, that looks like a handful. He was feathering the throttle to try and get traction in the wet.

  • the fact that Top Gear leaves this out of their shows, demonstrates how much they have missed the mark with this new series. Top gear is dead. Long live the Grand Tour.

  • With all the money available to them, they produce a video that is no better than having a mobile phone or dash cam recording. So much want to be not like the original Stig lap has produced a video so boring it gives you none of the spectacle or speed of the car.
