Fans of Top Gear had better get ready for the latest DVD and BluRay instalment from the folks at Top Gear, with the TV show unleashing the complete volume of its fifteenth series on Thursday.
Those of you who have read all of our episode reviews will know that this is a cracking series, full of thrills, spills and mayhem as the show’s intrepid hosts – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – embark on an assortment of adventures in the world’s most popular car show.
This six-episode series has it all. In the opening chapter, Jeremy examines why three-wheeled cars (like the Reliant Robin) failed to take off on the motoring landscape. James takes the Polar Special Toyota Hilux on a daring run to that unpronounceable active earthquake in Iceland, while Richard farewells the venerable Chevrolet Lacetti and welcomes in the KIA Cee’d as the new Reasonably Priced Car (along with an assortment of celebrity guests).
At other points in the series, the boys travel to Germany and examine if its possible to unearth race-ready family cars for less than £5000 a pop.
Celebrity guests include Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, Hollywood actors Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise, while F1 veteran Rubens Barrichello laps the Top Gear test track faster than the Stig!
There are plenty more escapades on offer, and you’ll have to check out the specially-packaged Steelbook DVD (also available on BluRay), which is on sale on Thursday in Australia.
Two two-disc package also includes a range of special featurettes which are worth checking out.
