    That looks like a tabloid writing style too

    The article hinted at a better story, the most ostentatious car ever has been produced, a gold Lamborghini LP640.

    Did this crash happen at high speed?

    Was it reported by the Mirror?

    Accidents happen. However, knowing that these guys push the cars to their limits tells you that what they'll tell you will give you some real insight into the car.

    Too bad he pushed it in the wet, proof that AWD isn't foolproof, not even pro-proof...

    With the recent Richard Hammond Incident, the all Eyes have been on Top Gear.. ( And this is the result )

    Top Gears next season is scheduled to start early January. I want to say Jan 8th, but I am not possitive. Richard Hammond will be back for the season. I herd that James May had a recent injury during filming. Something about a Shelby Cobra and a shopping cart, but im pretty unsure about the specifics.

    It was at the MPH show, he was in a shopping cart and JC slammed into the back of him in the new Mustang, he was then sent in to huge bowling pins

    Edit---
    This happened about a month ago btw..

    "Dented it's bumper"

    Hardly sounds like a smash to me. Sometimes the Brits get a little too excited in their headlines.

    Here's the specifics for you... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAqOsgZdLwI

    Hairline fracture of the wrist or something like that, nothing too serious.

    No, it was 1mph too slow to oficially appear in the Mirror.

    And to Kitdy, search around the forums, you'll find the answer.

    Quite frankly I'd be pleased if they never made another episode, simply because people are apparently annoyed at having to wait on such trivial matters as presenters recovering from brain damage.

    What's this "we" business?

    Drag racing in the UK is very successful and popular.

    It's almost as if a link to James May's personal account of the story had not already bee posted in this thread.
