The show has close links with the UK military who have, among other things; tried to target a Range Rover Sport with a Challenger 2 tank; proved that a Hughes Apache attack helicopter cannot get a missile lock on a Lotus Exige; driving a Mercedes SLK and a Porsche Boxster through an Irish Guard sniper-filled abandoned town to see how many times they could hit the driver; set the fastest ever lap of the test track using a Royal Navy BAe Sea Harrier FA.2 (0.31 sec); and launched Stig One to his 'death' from the deck of HMS Ark Royal during a drag race between a stripped & nitrous-modified Jaguar XJS and a Sea Harrier.

If you like cars, then this programme is just simply amazing. Unlike most programmes that are in this genre, the programme has survived a beyond 20 years at the top, and not many programmes come close. 5th Gear on five does come close, but it just doesn't have the heart or the dedication that Top Gear does.
While the people on 5th Gear only talk about cars, the Top Gear crew talk about everything that is to do with cars, and not just the cars themselves. For example, they have "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" where a celebrity goes round their track to see how fast they are. And once, they decided to test the Toyota Pickup's claim of being the "the toughest car on the road" by basically ramming it into stuff, and putting it on a building that got demolished etc. and it still actually run. They also once tested if you can run your diesel car off of Vegetable Oil (you can, although your exhaust smells like a bag of chips).
Overall, this programme's great and a show you must fit into your weekly schedule, gets 10/10
