    Jeremy Charles Robert Clarkson is an English broadcaster and writer who specialises in motoring. He writes weekly columns for The Sunday Times and The Sun, but is better known for his role on the BBC television programme Top Gear.

    His review may be valid for England/Europe, but not for India as the cars here are different from what you have over there.
  3. no comments until he starts describing cars in india when he might come to india..

    but then he might never come to india..
    guys if any one of you knows a little telugu try watching hot wheels in tv9 telugu. it would be a comedy show of sorrts

    I consider Jeremy Clarkson's reviews as the ultimate truth ! :) He's the only one that I have seen or heard being bold enough to criticize super expensive cars and also put them to a road test worthy enough for them.

    He is a crappy driver. The SAS driver trainer teaching him driving gave up on him as he knows better than anyone else. How good he was showed Sabine when she outdrove hime in a Transit van. I had my encounters with him and can tell that he does not know a lot. Top of all of the presenters on the British scene is Vicky. She won the Maserati cup, but is not appreciated because she knows what she is talking about, but seems to have the wrong sex.

    I don't know what the ultimate truth is supposed to be, but my understanding of it is different. And so is of many others who actually work in the enginerring field or a real racers. Clarkson is overpaid for doing reviews, where he wants to be the ultimate authority when real pros differ.

    Tiff Needell ( Fifth Gear) is a REAL driver. Jeremy is a better entertainer, and Top Gear is now more about entertainment than anything else.

    When in doubt , listen to what Needell says.

    @drifter - Sabine is a professional ; cant compare her to Jeremy.

    I think 5th gear is a better auto review show than top gear... although top gear is a better entertainer...
    People who donno squat about vehicles can enjoy top gear....

    5th gear is little more precise and less off a show off :)
