Clarkson Powered Up DVD
Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.
For my all new DVD, I'm in the South of France.
My base? The high-tech testing ground for Formula One – Circuit Paul Ricard.
My mission? To find my favourite car of the year.
My candidates? For starters there's a pair of Ferraris… the V12, 6.3 litre FF, the 458 and the UK challenger to the 458… McLaren's MP4-12C.
Joining the action are the latest gizmo-laden Nissan GTR, Porsche's GT2 RS, the 570-horsepower Lamborghini Performante and the insanely fun BMW 1M. Helping me on my mission are tame racing driver The Stig and the not-so-tame Formula One driver Karun Chandhok.
And there are blasts from the past as well – with bang up to date credentials; the awesome Eagle Speedster – the modern twist on the iconic, timeless E-Type with its 4.7 litre engine – and an eye-watering £500,000 price tag.
There's also enough in-your-face power to flambé your eyebrows from the single-seater, super-lightweight B.A.C. Mono – capable of 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. Circuit Paul Ricard tests all these cars and more to the limit…
How to sum up all this action? Well, I sit in a chair, a man has a mishap… And a brown car goes round a corner… What more could you want?
