Top Gear: the Complete Season 12

Rev heads rejoice! Top Gear the Complete Season 12 races its way onto DVD which once again reunites the gang with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Just as entertaining as previous instalments, Season 12 contains a variety of impressive car reviews and of course those hilarious Top Gear anecdotes such as the car challenges and of course, a variety of guest stars such as Tom Jones and even Mark Wahlberg, although most of the guest stars are from the UK.

The highlights of season 12 include the amusing race from Saigon to Hanoi on scooters and motorcycles and the testing of the Corvette, Dodge and Challenger on the salt flats of Utah where they clock up speeds of excess to 150 miles per hour. We even celebrate a birthday along the way, Richard Hammond's 40th and James does his first real car test with the Pagani Zonda F Roadster which is a classic to watch. Is he nervous? You betcha!

What makes the series so popular beside the sexy new cars from race to concept  are of course the hosts, Clarkson, Hammond and May who have a great rapport between each and best of all, you can tell that they are really enjoying what they do.... lucky bast***s! Then you have The Stig, the mysterious race driver who really knows how to handle a car and puts quite a few through the laps in Season 12. With Season 12 such a treat to watch, it's great that the gang are racing ahead with even more Top Gear fun!

The video quality looks exceptional in glorious widescreen with vibrant colours and sharp images that is matched with the relatively good quality Dolby Digital 2.0  that compliments the video. In terms of special features, the viewer is greeted to some impressive titbits from commentary from the gang and the cast, more entertaining STIG segments  and a variety deleted scenes and information segments, all oozing with Top Gear Goodness. With fatherís day just around the corner, this is one series that Iím sure most dadís would enjoy!

Rock on!
