Top Gear Series 13

Who would have thought that a TV show about cars would be so popular? Thanks of course goes to Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and The Stig who have turned this lifestyle TV series into a world wide phenomenon and focuses on cars.

But it’s never really been about the cars and more so for the whacky banter between these individuals, the road tests and our favourite, the crazy challenges that they come up with each season. This DVD collection features all episodes from Series 13 that includes the Top Gear Race to the North from London to Edinburgh as the boys attempt to beat each other to the destination via train, a Jaguar XK120 and a Vincent Black Shadow motorbike.

The series also features a number of guests, mainly from Britain such as glamour model Madison Welsh or actor/comedian Stephen Fry and even international guests like Michael Schumacher who hilariously unveils to the world that he is “The Stig”. Series 13 features some lush cars that are tested such as the new Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SV or the sexy Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG.

Another entertaining challenge is that the trio attempt to buy cars for 17-year olds with only a budget of £2500 and then they take these cars through the testing hoops which had us in hysterics such as installing kits to attract the eyes of girls. The beauty of Top Gear is that not all cars are prototypes or race cars and the last episode features a race again the Ford Focus RS and the Renault Mégane R26.R, two relatively normal cars. But what makes this so special is that the commentators are having the time of their life which is quite infectious to the viewer.

Video/Audio 

Once again the British prove why they are the best in producing high quality TV series as this collection supports 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 2.0. Extremely sharp images, great colours and exceptionally clear audio makes this a worthy buy for your Top Gear collections.

If you’re a fan of Top Gear, this is a must have series and even if you’ve only seen this series a few times on TV but enjoyed, picking it up with Series 13 will no way disadvantage you. Recommended!
