'Now on Top Gear... It's all about Hollywood.
'We choose our favourite cars from the movies and TV...'
Oh, this is sacrilege.
'..the Soprano Steve Schirripa hits our track...
All right, here we go, baby.
'..and Tanner puts the new Subaru WRX to the test
'by racing it against a dirt bike.'
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Welcome to Top Gear.
Now, today it's all about the hero car, and I know, just like a lot of you guys,
I got my first driving lesson from watching TV,
whether it was that beautiful Ferrari in Ferris Bueller's Day Off,
or Burt Reynolds in Smokey And The bandit.
I think Adam was watching too much Fall Guy maybe,
because they jump over everything and crashed through everything.
-It's true, or Driving Miss Daisy since you're so slow.
Unsurprisingly, we could not agree
on which of the movie or TV cars are the best.
So that got us arguing and that got us thinking.
We were all given 3,000 to build a tribute car.
We'd put 'em through a series of challenges
to find out which one was the best.
Hollywood, where movie stars are born.
But actors aren't always the only stars -
certain cars have been known to steal the scene,
so we were each given 2,000 to buy and modify
what we thought was the best car to ever appear in a movie or TV show.
Does it get any cooler than KITT?
I mean, first off we've got a Trans Am with artificial intelligence,
it had a British voice for an American car for some reason,
it could evade police, it had rockets,
it could go 300mph.
A Pontiac has never done that.
You've got The Hoff, members' only jackets like these...
I mean, it was everything great about the '80s.
Now, this one's a little updated. It's a '95.
I've got a new scanner on there, I've got a new computer inside.
There's no other car these guys could choose
that could come anywhere close to this one.
Great Scott. What the hell is that?
-You're not serious.
-A little help.
Your gull-wing door, I assume?
Just hold on to that thing for...
I've just got to get this in place, here.
This seems like a terrible idea.
I've got some kinks to work out of the system, but behold...
The time machine. We're going Back To The Future, my friend.
-This is your DeLorean?
-I mean, it's not exactly a DeLorean,
but for two grand you can't get a real DeLorean. Don't be kidding.
-Of all the cool cars you could have chosen...
-Oh, come on.
What the hell have you done here? What, are you making popcorn?
That is a Mr Fusion, something that is far ahead of its time.
You welded hinges to the roof and that's basically where your style ended.
-Did you spend any time on this at all?
I bet you're thinking twice about
whatever that thing is over there, huh?
-Is this the Hoffmobile?
-Does this even count?
I mean, I've got a time machine and you've got a talking car.
-This thing will go 300mph.
What do you think Adam's driving? At a slow rate of speed?
What's the oldest car you could possibly imagine?
-Was there a car in Ben-Hur? He'll get a chariot.
-Oh, this is sacrilege.
-You've got to be kidding me.
Welded the door.
-You used a Duster as the General Lee?
It's in the Mopar family.
I thought a Nissan into a DeLorean was bad, but this is criminal.
I can't believe you picked a show that we know.
This is an iconic car, my friends.
-Tell me you didn't have a small General Lee.
-I did. I had several.
That's enough. You aren't even in the right continent. A Nissan?
-This is your time machine?
This isn't going to make it till tomorrow. And you - this is a mess.
It's a rolling playpen. Look at your dash.
Does your daughter know you have all her toys in your car?
That's a very sophisticated computer system.
'That was easy.'
This is a real car that did real things. These are toys.
-Yeah, eat my shorts.
-Shall we see what we're doing here?
"A true hero car does its own stunts.
"To test the talents of your cars,
"you'll compete in a series of challenges,
"the first of which is 30 miles east of here."
-Let's hit it.
-All right. Hey, can you give me a hand?
-Both of you have no doors.
-Bring it down.
I thought it would take me at least until the first challenge
to prove how superior my Japanese DeLorean was,
but straight away it was making an impression.
-FROM TOUR BUS:
-'And over there, Michael J Fox from Back To The Future.'
I just heard him say that this is Michael J Fox
in Back To The Future right there.
Tanner, you made the Hollywood tour!
Check that one off the bucket list.
It was an unbelievably big moment for DeLorean in 1985
when Marty McFly looked over to Doc Emmett Brown
and said, "You made a time machine?
"Out of a DeLorean?" And the word was immortalised.
Now, as nice as it would have been to use a DeLorean for this car,
I mean, for 2,000, obviously you just can't find one,
but the Nissan 200SX is rear wheel drive,
it's got more of an edgy shape, like the DeLorean had,
I was able to get a metallic silver paint job on the thing
and it's cheap as hell.
This car is an icon - the General Lee.
I mean, it's one of the most recognisable cars in history.
By 1981 the car was getting fan mail,
an average of 35,000 more letters
than any other human being on the show.
Now, the original General Lee was a '69 Dodge Charger.
This is a '73 Duster that's...
All right, it's crap, because I couldn't find a '69 Charger
because the production probably used them all up.
They went through anywhere between 250 and 300 Dodge Chargers
during the production of The Dukes Of Hazzard,
and the producers had spotter planes up to fly over highways
and look for Dodge Chargers
to pull people over to see if they wanted to sell the cars.
And the modifications on the car were pretty simple -
just weld the doors shut, paint it orange, put 01 on the door
and a horn that blows Dixie.
HORN PLAYS LA CUCARACHA
Which I couldn't afford, so I got that off a lunch truck.
-What's up, brother?
-Thank you so much, man.
I just got a tip from a homeless guy.
That is a new record right there. We have hit a new low.
Adam may have been a hit with the homeless,
but nothing could beat KITT. I'm telling you,
you've got to try and option your steering wheel like this.
You know, I did use a speak and spell type device for my computing.
I'll be honest, I didn't actually wire all the switches,
I just glued them on, but when you hit the turbo button, look out!
'That was easy.'
We blazed our way out of Hollywood and arrived at our first challenge.
-Need a hand?
-No, forget it. I'm fine.
Stupid door. That was not a good idea.
-What's up with the wall?
-I got it right here.
I don't know but it cannot be good.
"To see which of your cars has the best performance,
"you must accelerate to 88mph then come to a full stop
-"before hitting that wall of boxes."
-Referencing the best movie ever.
"Because your cars should be better than the average car,
"the distance to beat has been set by a Suzuki SX4."
And I wonder where we got that from.
"Shortest distance from start to finish wins." Fairly simple.
What happens if I, like, vanish?
That's cute. Has either of those cars even seen
-what 88mph even looks like?
-Tell them to watch cos I'll show you.
-Go. Just go.
-I hate it when he has horsepower.
-He's going to smoke us.
-Yeah, I know.
-OK, so these boxes have got to be where the Suzuki came up to speed and stopped.
-I've got the radar gun to make sure he doesn't cheat.
-Think he's ready?
-This isn't even a challenge.
It's another way to show off how awesome the KITT car is.
All right, we have the radar gun here. We'll let you know
when you're up to 88 miles an hour and that's when you brake.
-'Whatever you do,'
-do not hit that wall.
All right, Rut. Go.
'We can begin learning together.'
Ready, KITT? Go.
20, 30, 40, 50.
-60? That's too fast.
-You ready on the radio?
-Yeah, I'm ready.
-All right, brake.
'The answer is...'
-'That was easy.'
Can you guys even see me?
We can't hear you, sorry. No, don't talk to him.
'My Trans Am did great.
'Marty McFoust was up next.'
No way I'm hitting 88mph. I'm just going to tell you right now.
Would you stop that?
Gentlemen, the time machine...is ready.
OK, we'll tell you when you're doing 88. Go.
Come on. There it is, 45.
-You're at 60.
65, come on. Come on!
There's 70! Come on!
But you broke 88 boxes.
Does that make you feel better? Look, he's dragging.
-'Adam was up next.'
'I was beginning to second-guess my decision
'to replace a Charger with a Duster.'
I don't know what good this is going to do, but I'll put it on.
-Adam, are you ready?
Just remember that thus far
my car is the only one better than a Suzuki.
OK. He is a big, fat, annoying man.
Adam, are you ready?
I'll let you know when I'm ready. How's that? Play with your gun.
Do you remember the time that we did this in I beat you?
I don't think this car is going to get up to 88mph, to be honest with you.
I might have to start further back.
And the brakes have been going, so let's see how this turns out.
OK, hit it in three, two, your car's going to suck, go.
HORN PLAYS LA CUCARACHA
-You've got to... You're going to have to use the gun.
You feel like it's a waste of battery.
-I feel like it's a waste of batteries.
-How fast am I going?
My speedometer doesn't work.
-Tell him 30.
I say he doesn't break 60.
How fast is that?
No brakes. There's some. Not enough.
He's off in the bushes!
-He may be unconscious.
-That was a violent boom.
See if you can get him on the radio.
'Are you OK?'
-Are you OK?
-Yeah, how fast was that?
-So, let's see. You did 73 miles an hour.
-You did 77.
And I did more than 88,
which makes KITT and I the winners. Oh, yeah.
-Why do you do this?
Isn't that what you do when you win stuff? I don't know.
-He's such a good winner(!)
-Yeah, isn't he?
Let's go kick him again.
And now on to something that doesn't look anything like a hero car,
but it's supposed to perform like one.
-So basically the exact opposite of our movie cars.
This is the 2011 Subaru STI. It's the fastest Subaru ever built
and it's supposed to be fast on any surface you throw at it.
Well, is it?
I took it to a ghost town deep in the mountains to find out.
When most people think of an off-road vehicle, they think of a truck or an SUV.
But Subaru thinks of this.
2011 Impreza WRX STI.
It's all-wheel drive, turbocharged,
and grips like a squirrel on amphetamines.
Yeah, there's definitely no doubt - this car is a blast to drive.
It's not a supercar, but it is fast. For 35 grand, it's unbelievably fast.
140mph on a B-road, bumpy, narrow, uneven pavement.
It's incredibly calm, cool and collected.
The STI is the top of Subaru's performance line.
It comes with a 2.5 litre, 305 hp engine.
And for about 35 grand, you'll get an all-wheel drive car
that'll do 0 to 60 in under five seconds.
There's something that connects the Subaru here to a Porsche.
It's the Boxer engine. It's a very unique thing - not many cars have it.
Basically, if you added two cylinders to this drive train
and then turned it around so that the engine was in the back,
you'd have the exact layout of a Porsche Carrera 4,
almost identical acceleration numbers, too,
except the Porsche is two and a half times as expensive.
It's not great on road and the stiffened suspension does help with that,
but once this car gets off road and gets into the tricky stuff, it comes alive.
You can't tell how good these cars are
until you get them off road and push them beyond your own comfort limit.
The grip the all-wheel drive system makes is...
Violent. You get all four wheels spinning in the same direction.
It's incredible the reaction this car makes.
The world is divided when it comes to the look of the Subaru. You either love it or hate it.
It does look a lot better dirty than clean, that's for sure.
The fact is that Subaru has built its brand on its loyalty.
More than half of the current Subaru owners will buy another Subaru next.
One of the largest message boards in the world
is the North American Subaru Impreza Owner's Club.
Over 200,000 members blog away on the internet.
Subaru owners are unique, yet predictable.
I could pretty much predict that your IT guy drives a WRX or an STI
and he honks and waves at other Subaru WRXs and STIs on the road.
The Impreza STI obviously has incredible off-road capabilities,
but to really find out how good it was, I wanted to put it to a test.
Subaru claim that this car drives like a sports car
over virtually any terrain, but to see how fast this car goes over this terrain
you need a benchmark to race against.
That benchmark is the dirt bike.
Perhaps the ultimate all-terrain vehicle.
And the only person we could find crazy enough to take on this challenge
was X Games gold medallist Cam Sinclair,
riding a Yamaha YZ250.
Now that I had my challenger, we needed a location.
This...is Eagle Mountain,
once the largest open-pit iron mine in the western United States.
The iron ore from here was manufactured into steel
that was then used to make hardware
for World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam,
so if you served your country, chances are your tank came from here.
This 10,000-acre playground
was the perfect place for an all-terrain race.
Our course would take us from the top of the mine,
through a decrepit industrial area and finish just past a ghost town.
Racing across an industrial mine is pretty dangerous,
so the attorneys made me drive the rally version of the STI for safety,
but even though it's been modified for racing, it's not that different from a street car.
The engine has slightly more horsepower
and it's equipped with a roll cage, better suspension and gravel tyres.
My number one priority is to beat him.
Number two is to try and keep my tongue in my mouth.
I had a higher top speed than my opponent,
but that didn't mean I had the advantage.
I'd have to use the ribbon of road winding through the mine,
while the dirt bike could cut straight through the obstacles
and race directly towards the finish.
To be completely honest, my money wasn't on the Subaru.
He got a jump start. Oh, man - he's fast off the line!
'The dirt bike immediately took advantage of its ability
'to cut across the roads, while all I could do was hammer down.'
Oh, he's taking a shortcut.
Well, he's really fast over the rough stuff.
He's taking another shortcut. Oh, man.
'We'd split halfway down the mountain.
'I had five miles of winding dirt trails in front of me before I'd reach the bottom.
'Cam took a more direct approach.
'It was a 50 degree slope into a quarter-mile deep pit.
'Life-threatening to climb down,
'but on a bike...
'But Cam was here to win.'
There's no way he's anywhere close.
Oh, shit - there he is!
'Cam's death-defying decision
'to bomb down the side of a cliff has paid off.
'We were now in the apocalyptic industrial area.'
'With three miles to go, it would be about manoeuvrability, not speed.
'The dirt bike had the advantage in these close quarters and I was falling behind.
'But even worse - my tongue was hanging out.'
He just gets through the buildings so fast it's unbelievable.
'We were almost out of the industrial zone
'when I saw an opportunity to do something I couldn't resist.
'Taking that jump may have put me behind,
'but I was hoping I could make it up once we hit the asphalt.
'The challenge for us both was to find the exit on the other side.'
Whoa, wrong turn.
'And I immediately took a turn into a dead end.'
Oh, my gosh, that was close.
'He could weave through the houses.
'But so could I.
'The Impreza was more than living up to its reputation as an all-terrain car.
'But then Cam decided to put me in my place.
'We were both lost in the labyrinth.
'The first to find the exit would take the race.'
How do you get out of this place?
'Cam had spotted the exit and hit the highway.
'Unless I found a shortcut, it was all over.'
There's the exit, right there.
Oh, my God, just neck and neck.
'Now we were on asphalt.
'Time for those 305 horses to do their job.'
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Wow. OK, so you raced a biker through a ghost town and you won. How was it?
It was pretty awesome. I've got to say, this is probably better off-road than it is on-road.
Really? Well, last year you took the Mitsubishi Evo
down a ski slope covered in snow, racing against two skiers,
so I want to know, how did the Subaru compare, since that's the main competitor?
The Subaru was perfect going up those gravel roads.
It's probably more fun on the dirt than the Evo.
The Evo's probably more fun on the pavement,
but I didn't know which one was faster.
To find out though, we elicited the help of our infallible test driver -
Stig getting comfortable.
He's off. The launch of these Subarus, really incredible.
Very popular among younger drivers as drag cars for that reason.
Getting up to speed very quickly
with the first corner seeming very composed.
Heading, actually, into the chicane with very little body roll.
I can say, behind the wheel it feels like this car's leaning
quite a bit more than it looks from the outside.
Stig finding his way into the teardrop.
Now, this is where the all-wheel drive will really set the STI apart
from our two-wheel drive cars on this track as it can put
the power down so efficiently out of this tighter corner.
And sure enough, not a hint of wheel-spin,
just putting every horsepower straight to the ground,
building up very impressive speed.
Blazing by the grass. Not afraid to go off-road.
Tearing by the tyres, very quick through here.
Now, this is a difficult section of the track.
Very bumpy at high speed. STI just nailing it through there.
That's what this car is good at - the rough stuff.
Stig working just a little bit there as he finds the apex
with a hint of understeer. Now we come in to the S-turn section.
Now, quite a bit of weight on the front tyres of this car
makes it understeer a little bit through these corners.
Somehow managing to get through the last corner even with the drift
and across the line.
-Wow. Now that was abusive.
-It really was.
I mean, he got everything possible out of this car.
There is no doubt of that, but the question is is it faster than the Evo?
What do you guys think? I think it is.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE You would be wrong.
It's actually 8/10 of a second slower than the Evo with a 1.30.0.
-Still a good lap, I would say.
Still ties with an X6 M, a much more expensive car.
We just have a fast board, that's all.
I mean, it shows why those cars are paired up so closely.
It's kind of like the Chevy/Ford battle, but of Japanese rally cars.
Yes, it's kind of the modern-day muscle-car battle.
They're both about the same price, the same horsepower.
This is an incredibly capable car, it's just not as good as the Evo on our road course.
Oh, you mean kind of like how your Nissan DeLorean
is nowhere near as good as my KITT car in our movie cars challenge.
We each spent 2,000 to create our favourite cars
to ever star in a TV show or movie.
We were trying to find out who had chosen the best
and met up for our next challenge.
You know what I've always wanted to try?
That show Rockford Files. That guy would always, you know,
he would reverse and then spin around and take off.
-Is that what they call it?
-You can do that?
A reverse spin turn, yeah. I think you could do it with almost any car.
-You go first. We'll try it after.
-Really? You're going to do it if I do it?
All right, so, basically, I want to get up to speed,
Crank the wheel one rotation, lift off the gas.
When it gets halfway around, hit the brake,
get the steering wheel straight, put it in a forward gear and drive away.
OK? Simple as that.
-I can't wait to see this.
-Do you think his door's going to fly open?
Oh, totally. Like a little bird.
I think he's going to lose the entire air conditioning system.
OK, here we go. Full throttle. Got to get up...
Oh, it's not fast.
RUTLEDGE LAUGHS AND CLAPS
-There went his prop rod for the door.
-That was so scary.
-That was nuts, huh?
-You forgot your door post.
The door threw me off. I felt like everything was going to come out the door.
-Well, you stayed in.
-Was that movie magic?
'Tanner made it look easy because he's a professional stunt driver.
'My General Lee was up next.'
I'll be honest with you - I am not worried about my door flying open
because I welded it shut.
I am worried, however, of the front-end falling off,
having enough power,
turning, braking and stopping.
Do you think he's going to do OK?
No. Slow steering rack so he can't get it around
and then, when it does come around, he's not going to turn enough,
so he's going to end up backing up into us.
-Can you run in those shoes?
-Pretty nice, huh?
-I don't know what to say.
It was so ugly and so slow.
'Adam tried but his Rockford turn wasn't a success.
'KITT had a chance to make it two for two
'as we lined up for a try at the Rockford turn.'
All right, I'm going to try the Rockford.
I've got the fastest car here, this is going to work.
-Come on, you big hick.
Here he comes.
All right, all right.
Hauling ass, hauling ass, hauling ass, hauling ass.
Whoa-ho-ho! Oh, it worked! It worked!
I am the greatest driver of all time.
'Rutledge may have thought he pulled off the stunt,
'but he went into the dirt and lost forward momentum making me the winner.'
-It was a little off-road though. What happened?
-Are you kidding me?
'This meant he and I were tied going into our last challenge.'
Now it's time for what we call Big Star, Small Car.
That's where we take a celebrity, put them in our Suzuki,
let them go round the track to see who can set the fastest time
and I'm very pleased today cos our celebrity is a good friend of mine.
-You know him from the Sopranos, Steve Schirripa.
Good to see you, pal. Thanks for being here.
All right. So how do you feel? Are you ready for this?
-I'm a little concerned.
-When was the last time you drove?
-The last time I drove was about eight months ago.
-Eight months ago?
-You should be fine.
I am a absolute wreck.
I should have worn Depends. I'm not joking.
'OK, we have to get some seat covers for the Suzuki.'
-All right, here we go, baby.
-'All right, he's off.'
I can't come in last. I just can't. Oh, boy.
'OK, he's heading towards the first turn. And the Suzuki's a snug fit.'
All right, come on, come on. Come on.
Easy on that corner, baby. Easy on that corner.
I would make a good cab driver in New York, eh?
'Yeah, if you weren't in a hurry.'
I really and truly am trying my best here.
ENGINE STICKS IN GEAR
Riding those gears, man. Glad I don't own this car.
Like a jockey, come on.
Hit the white line, hit the white line.
-Hit the goddamn white line!
-'Past the tyres.'
When you're driving a car for, you know, 45 years
and you still suck at it, it's a problem.
'OK, we're going into Cameraman's Curve, it's very dangerous...
'and no-one is concerned.'
Come on, baby, get on your horse.
Come on, Suzuki!
'Here comes the jockey across the line.'
All right, all right. We'll see what happens.
We'll see what happens.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
Steve, come on up.
-Good to see you. Have a seat.
-Now, did you have fun on your lap?
-I had fun.
-It was extremely, extremely scared.
First, I haven't driven a car in eight months.
I live in Manhattan, I don't have a car, you know.
And I wasn't even a good driver when I did drive
and then I had to drive a shift.
I've never even attempted to drive a shift.
So The Stig actually taught you?
The Stig... The Stig was like my dad.
-I consider Stig like my adopted dad now.
-I really do.
Do you drive? You have to drive when you add here.
-No, I don't drive.
-How do you get around?
-They drive me around.
-LAUGHTER AND JEERING
I've done OK, you know? I don't mean like that. Stop it.
-I'm working usually. When I come to LA I'm working.
What was the car like your family had growing up?
-We didn't own a car.
-It was all subways, buses?
You want to know why I suck? That's why I suck.
You had a pretty cool car though. You had a Javelin.
A '69 javelin was the first car that I owned.
-And who did you get to drive you in that?
-Adam, at one time in my life I had to drive.
So the Javelin was a very cool car.
Was that the car you learned to drive in?
No, no, no. Believe it or not, driver's ed, Brooklyn, New York,
you paid the teacher 200 and you don't have to go to the class.
-Dave Towell, Lafayette High School.
-Don't use names, what the hell is wrong with you?
-The statute of limitations is over.
Then I was moving to Las Vegas from New York so I had to get a car.
-Right. I met you when you were in Vegas.
I lived in Vegas for over 20 years.
-You were a maitre d'.
-I was a maitre d', Paul Anka used to own a nightclub.
You were known as the make-out maitre d'. He was.
-No, this is what happened.
A guy comes in, like a customer, say you.
OK, you say, "Steve, I've got a girl over here. I've got nowhere to go."
-Whatever you're going to do with her is your business.
Yeah. Maybe the guy slipped me 20, maybe he slipped me 50.
I would tell the valet parker,
"Bring your nice car around for Adam."
I don't know whose car it was.
And you and the girl would go in the parking lot in the back seat
and, you know, if the guy came out, wants his car,
you know, we would obviously stall him.
-ADAM KNOCKS ON TABLE
-So there was some of that going on.
It's hysterical, unless it's your car.
-But he never knew.
-What do you mean he never knew?
The wife gets in the car in the morning and goes, "Smells like..."
"Where the hell were you last night?"
"I swear to God, I was at Paul Anka's club by myself."
-So, you weren't the valet guy. You didn't park the cars.
Park the cars, what, are you kidding me? I'm lucky I got myself to work.
Right, let's see how good you are. Where do you think you're going to end up?
-I'm going to say that I beat Buzz Aldrin.
-I'm going to go low.
Well, look. I will tell you this. You did it in 1...
-point 2. Which means you...
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Let me show you where you are, man. Let me show you where you are.
1.55.2, you tied with Michelle Rodriguez.
Who was in The Fast And The Furious.
All right. That's not bad, no.
I've never had this opportunity before.
Do you want to be on top or on the bottom of Michelle Rodriguez?
I'll go on top.
-All right, all right. I am proud of that.
-You should be.
He learned to drive stick this morning.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
That's a good job. That's a great job. So now let me ask you this -
what's your favourite car you've ever seen in a movie or on TV?
-My Mother The Car.
-My Mother The Car?
-Did you ever see that car?
-Black and white?
-The car talked.
The mother was in the car, got reincarnated as the car.
-My Mother The Car, does anyone remember that?
Steve Schirripa, and he learned to drive a stick this morning.
-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
-Well done. That's a great job.
We were competing to see who had the best 2,000 car. Oh...
Rut's really bad Knight Rider won the braking test
and Tanner won the Rockford turn, so they were tied.
My General Lee had not been performing very well,
but if I could win the last challenge
it would be a three-way tie.
"One of the classic skills of a hero car
"is the ability to outrun the bad guys.
"To find out which of you chose the best getaway car,
"you will now try to evade a typical villain's car.
"The villain will pursue your car around this track.
"To catch you, he'll need to pass your car with his.
"Be sure to avoid the movie prop obstacles in your path."
Where's the villain? TYRES SCREECH
Of course, The Stig is here.
"You have a 15-second head start.
"The car that avoids capture the longest wins."
So you go first.
You ready there, Stig?
Oh, man. Those guys know that this car is not fast.
The problem is the car is just remarkably heavy for how much power it has.
160 hp and it weighs 3,000 lbs. It's ridiculous.
-All right, Tanner, are you ready?
-Here we go.
Three, two, one, go.
Go, let me go, let me go!
-That's really full throttle. That's sad. That's it.
-Look at that.
-Look at that.
-He's raring to go.
There we go. Look at that.
Look at the damn door flying off!
Oh, man, were flat-tracking it a little bit.
There he is. Oh, no!
Argh! THEY LAUGH
-Through the barrier!
-Little crash there, but it's OK.
-Come on, little Nissan.
-The Stig is definitely getting closer.
-Look at that.
-Here he comes. He's going to catch him now.
OK, he's got me. He's got me, he's got me.
Oh, he's there. How long?
-Three minutes, five seconds.
-I'd say I lasted pretty long there.
I'm kind of surprised, to be honest with you.
'Tanner's time was just over three minutes.
'I was up next and if I won this challenge it would be a three-way tie.'
Half a seat belt, six cylinders, limited braking,
terrible handling and I'm being chased by the Stig.
-This isn't good.
-You ready for this? OK.
Three, two, one, go!
-That's not very exciting.
-Does he know this is a race?
Come on, come on, come on. Oh, there you go, baby.
I think it looks kind of classic. Here comes The Stig.
Hold on. That's it, shift when you have to. Shift when you have to.
Don't stall, don't stall, don't stall.
What's he doing? Don't stall. Don't... Oh, you can't stall now.
-That's not good.
Oh, hey, stop the clock, stop the clock. That's it.
'My Duster may have looked the part, but it just wouldn't have the speed.
'The General Lee was done.'
-A minute 19.
'The pressure was on.
'If I was going to beat Tanner, I'd have to keep The Stig at bay
'for longer than three minutes and five seconds.
'Me and KITT were ready.'
-I know that he's got a car that sounds fast.
-Is it quick?
-He's got a button he thinks that makes it quick.
David Hasselhoff, I need you.
-I need you right now.
-Three, two, one, go!
Yeah, there it is. Oh, I'm missing part of the steering wheel.
That is not going to be very helpful.
The Stig is on it.
I really need that other part of the steering wheel.
Rutledge is almost on the wall. Oh, The Stig is working for it.
I'm at the side... Oh, no!
He just passed you. 1.19, 1.20.
Of course he passed me - there's no fruit to hit.
Oh, my arms are crossed over.
This cutting the steering wheel thing was a bad idea.
Come on, Stig!
-Oh, he's got him.
Oh, he hit the barricade!
Why did I cut this steering wheel?
-Did you hit your little turbo button?
The problem is I kept reaching for the steering wheel
and I had cut a little too much of it.
-How did I do?
-You beat me. You did, you beat me.
Did I beat you? Did I beat you?
-You throttled him.
-What?! What was the time?
-Tell me the time that I got!
This is awesome - I knew I'd beat you guys!
Oh, this is what this feels like!
Oh, I beat you!
I beat you!
-Sorry I beat you.
-I beat you
This is awesome.
Your halter top is coming up.
This jacket was the best idea I've ever had.
Shall we just leave him here basking?
Let him bask. You bask, we'll leave.
-That just happened.
-Don't turn around.
-Don't turn around.
-Yeah, that just happened!
-Just keep walking.
-Just stop it. I love the gloating. It fits a grown man.
Look, I'm sorry. I don't get the opportunity
to beat you guys at stuff that often. It just felt so good.
OK, but it's a budget win because if I had a bigger budget
I could have got a real Charger and I would have beaten you.
A budget win? If I had a real DeLorean I would have gone...slower.
Yes. I mean, the whole challenge here
was to buy the best movie car you could for two grand.
The KITT was it, I win, see you next time on Top Gear.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Yeah, in your face!
