The Citroën C6, renowned for its sublime ride quality and its departure from Citroën’s ergonomically eccentric past, once a Double-Oh for a spokesman. While we don’t know when this advertisement was made, it’s still a classy piece today. Watch Sean Connery as the supple Citroën ride turns back the clock to a time when he was wrinkle-less and spoke fluent German.
Here in Canada, we don’t think much of this French luxury sedan, but don’t take it for granted. After all, this is the car that inspired the back end of the upcoming Ian Callum-designed Jaguar XJ.
Jeremy Clarkson’s take on the Citroën C6 is below.
Even for a Top Gear stunt, this one is pretty wild. With Season 14 of every gearhead’s favourite show barely a month away, filming is in full swing for the new episodes. Unforunately, Top Gear won’t tell us the circumstances of this photo and the one after the jump, so we’re left to speculate.
Did Jeremy hate it so much he decided to destroy the baby Renault? Did Jeremy off himself? Did the Stig?
You either agree with Richard Hammond regarding the Porsche 911 or with Jeremy Clarkson. It is really a love or hate kind of sports car and a lot has to do with its style. The overall shape of the 911 has remained fairly consistant for a good 40 plus years now. Clarkson calls 911 designers lazy, while Hammond appreciates the evolution of the design.
Whatever your thoughts, Porsche does indeed have many different ways to spec a 911 and their latest offering supposedly caters to hardcore 911 enthusiasts alike: the Sport Classic.
Last night’s Top Gear (Episode 3, Season 13, for those keeping track), featured some atypically practical buying advice for these tough economic times. But Jeremy Clarkson’s review of the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series wasn’t one of them. Even if you can’t see the point of a 4300 lb car with too much power, you’ve got to appreciate the cinematography. And Clarkson’s infamously brash style.
Speaking of the Stig and Michael Schumacher, I’m just watching Episode 2 of Season 13 of Top Gear (get the torrent here). Did anyone else notice the Stig taking photocopies of his face during Richard, James, and Jeremy’s “17 year-old car buyer experience” skit? Do we really need more Stigs? I thought Schumi and Ben whats-his-face were enough. And Hammond, please, enough with the gang signs.
Last night, the new season of Top Gear started across the pond. It wouldn’t necessarily be much to write about, as it hasn’t aired here yet, except something that happened on the season premiere has had and will continue to have a wide-reaching impact on the automotive enthusiast world.
Yes, indeed…the Stig took off his helmet. If you don’t want to learn what was seen underneath, you don’t have to follow the jump. But if you do, well…you know what to do.
One month, officially. Hard to believe it’s only been a month with the new silver-skinned beast that resides in front of my house. It’s hard to believe because I can barely remember a time when I wasn’t driving it every day.
I’ve learned a lot about the car in the last month. So much that I could go on and on, ad nauseum. But since my drawn-out ranting doesn’t make for much in the way of reading, I’ve decided to go with a good, ol’ fashioned Top 5 List of Things The 350Z Has Taught Me:
