Hello folks! Just popped back briefly to ask if anyone has seen the new Top Gear trailer yet? ..Look closely at the car Clarkson is driving!

Other than that, it's worth noting that we miss our Up dearly.
All the best everyone!

The up! starred (to my eyes
) in the series preview shown at the start of last night's episode ""“ repeated tonight at 7pm on BBC Two, Saturday 8pm BBC Three, and on iPlayer.

Cannot imagine that they said anything flattering.
Unless it's a midlife-crisis-mobile, they're never going to like it

They talked about the up! in the News section of the previous series, and the general consensus was Clarkson thought it was a brilliant little car.

Agreed. They all really seemed to like it, and the topgear review on their magazine was pretty flattering to it as well, although they absolutely despise the ASG to the point of giving the UP only 3 out of 10 for drive with one installed (vis an 8/10 for the 2011 road test with a normal manual):

Thing is, the UP is what it is. It's never going to be a track race car (well, maybe against other UPs and similar cars...that'd be fun to watch actually), nor a fast lane cruiser on the motorway. It's just a great little car that's cheap to run and own, with an odd but endearing name.

Hopefully when you get your Up! Fidel you will be able to confirm how good they are. There is no substitute for personal experience. I was always told believe half of what you see and nothing of what you here. Edited by: Beevee

So have we any clues why Clarkson was driving the up with the tailgate open while pressing the heated seat button???


Or have we got to wait until it appears on one of the episodes?

Should be good! Still curious as to why the rear view base mirror is different to ours.

Did you see it? Driving with doors open and foot the floor driving at max revs in first to get the mpg below 20! Nice to know that the engine can take some abuse!
