Jeremy Clarkson, the oft-offensive co-host of the long-running BBC car show "Top Gear," has frequently sacrificed his bod and critical sphincter control for the show's various challenges and stunts. Here we see Clarkson behind the wheel of the "smallest car in the world," a fully street-legal vehicle allegedly designed by Clarkson himself. Apart from looking hilarious, there are a variety of downsides to piloting the world's tiniest car, which Clarkson discovers in quick succession.

And here is the VW hovercar:
Otherwise known as a lawnmower in the US, lol.
Top Gear’s this houses’ favorite show! Two teenage son’s and a car-nut Dad love this show.
BTW: I thought that tiny blue thing Clarkson drove down the halls of BBC was the worlds smallest car? This thing looks bigger than that “Nano” did.
Jeremy Clarkson is among my favorite TV personalities and he hates Piers Morgan to boot.
This is THE FUNNIEST SHOW ON TELEVISION. Even those not interested in cars will have tons of laughs watching this show.. THE BEST! Anyone with Netflix should check it out (The original British version, not the newer American one).
I should say so; Clarkson punched Morgan.
I follow Clarkson, May, and Hammond on twitter and they carry on like best of friends pretty much all the time.
Just today Clarkson said that he and Hammond were going to the prime ministers house and its not about gay marriage.
Pure terror on the dual carriageway.
Did he say “A lot of poo shot out then”? LOL
Top Gear Jeremy Drives a Reliant Robin
I see his problem. He’s driving on the wrong side of the road. ;-)
PEEL 50 was the tiny blue car, and I say it’s still smaller than the P45, but this was a hysterical episode.
The Reliant Robin show is one of my all-time favs! Another fun one is the challenge road trip in Viet Nam.
Jimmy Carr is my favorite guest on Top Gear. They play the music from The Omen when he comes out because he trashes their cars so bad.
The Trip in India was another excellent show.
The small wheels & narrow wheelbase makes the machine unstable, as can be seen in the video. Hitting a pothole - something real bad is gonna happen. If you hit a curb head on & hard, its gonna flip forward, your head & that plastic bubble are gonna be a battering ram on the concrete. The bubble needs a wiper & probably will fog up inside real easy - instant blindness.
Some might say that it is safer than a motorcycle, but I disagree. The motorcycle is far more agile & stable. Visibility has to be better that that bubble. You can always get off in a hurry if you need to.
That is a pretty funny show
We also love Top Gear, especially knowing that Clarkson punched Piers Morgan. : )
Actually they reckon that one was bit rubbish (They forgot the idea is messing about in cars)
This year they went on the internet, bought 3 used wagons for under ₤1500, and set off to find the source of the Nile. (February viewing)
