Allow us to present yet another CHALLENGES BONANZA crammed with volcanoes, World speed records, flying caravans, unstable Reliant Robins, jaw dropping races and cars exploding all over the place. No other programme offers so much for so little of your I.Q.
Special Features include:
• Extended interview with Lewis Hamilton
• Alternative angles on the Veyron, Zonda R and more
• Two extra Reliant Robin rollovers
• Germany fuel run challenge
• Deleted Scenes
• Plus so much more that we don't have the space to write everything!
What's faster than Captain Slow in a Bugatti Veyron? The Volkswagon test driver when he finds out that James May has become the fastest man to drive the fastest production car in history. Can't have that can we?
This 2 disc DVD set is packed with some of the best challenges from recent seasons of Top Gear and can be watched all in one go or you can pull out your favourite challenge to watch again and again. What I particularly liked about the latest iteration of the series was that instead of having the challenges interwoven with each other like some of the earlier DVDs in the Challenges series, the Challenges 5 has each Challenge on a stand alone basis. I found that this made it easier to keep my attention rather than the cutting back and forth technique used previously.
This disc would appeal to both the Top Gear enthusiast wanting to get more out of what he/she has already seen on the TV series, and the casual viewer who just wants to focus on the best bits without having to worry about the rest of the show. There are neat special features including views of different laps on the Top Gear test track that should your DVD player allow it, to view from multiple camera angles (so that's what that button does?) and an extended interview with Lewis Hamilton where he gets the chance to drive one of Ayrton Senna's most famous cars from the 1980s.
Top Gear is Top Gear and while this won't appeal to everyone, for those of us in the target market it is an enjoyable watch and something that I am happy to add to my DVD collection.
