Top Gear the Great Adventures
The India Special & Supercars Across Italy

PART 2

After watching Top Gear the Great Adventures "India Special" I was expecting more of the same - crazy great big belly laugh entertainment. But “Supercars Across Italy” is different. It’s set up differently - with more in the Studio Scenes and live audience. It’s more of a High Speed nerve racking adrenaline heart racing type of movie!

Top Gear Italian Style

Mission: - To settle their differences about Cars with a Road trip to Italy.  The producers of the TV series decide to send them on a road trip to test three different cars!

Three cars tested with High Speeds on the Italian Roads and Race Tracks. Where incredible speeds are reached, dangerous bends are taken and even Famous Racing Car Drivers have died.

Jeremy is driving in a Lamborghini Aventador, Richard is in a Noble M600 and James dives the MP4-12c.

The location of the first track is Nardo where speeds of over 220 m/h are reached by the Noble. Nardo Race Track is so vast that you are able to see it from Outer Space! They were even warned by Max Venturi not to push the speeds too much because the track is bumpy and the wind will carry them from lane to lane.

Yet all three men push their cars to the limit, and then some more.

After the Race Track - where they reached stupid speeds to find the car that can travel the fastest - they head across north to Rome.

Along the way Richard has car issues with the Noble so he gets left behind.

With Jeremy and James laughing evil devils laugh as they are driving off without their friend. Richard is left waiting on the side of the road, with one tow truck driver arriving...talking on his mobile phone, and then driving off into the Sunset. Once the Noble is picked up and taken to a Mechanics it’s clear that the car had Gear box/clutch issues and was not going anywhere.

The final test is to see whose car is fastest/better at the Imola Race Track.  Here is where they are damn crazy. They even realise how many lives that Imola has claimed, yet still push beyond what I would consider safe.

Even after all three challenges, with the crazy speeds, all three men could not agree on which Car was the fastest, economical, stylish, practical and all round “Best Car”.

Top Gear Italian Style "Supercars across Italy" was not as funny as The Indie Special, and I was confused by the coming and going of switching back from the live audience to the scenes of their adventure.

Have You Seen Top Gear Italian Style?

I think that being a Racing Car theme that boys would love the movie - I know that our boys did! But I just couldn't get into it as all I could think about was "ARE they nuts?" with the speeds they were doing as they drove through the streets of Italy and on the Race Track!

The DVD was based on a TV series so maybe if one was to watch more from Top Gear the Great Adventures then it would make sense!
