For my all new download, 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 The Stig and 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...

Just to be clear; I did not buy this, but I DID buy all 6 of the identical ones preceding it, hoping in vain, there would be something worth watching. Why anyone would pay £15 to see yet ANOTHER poorly produced Xmas stocking filler of cars we have already seen on Top Gear be driven round a track you've never heard of to the sound of a budget soundtrack and for what feels like the 27th instalment of this 'Jeremy's own' series is beyond me. I like Clarkson, I really do - but this is exactly what he claims he hates about cars such as Kias or Peroduas; namely it is soulless. This is recycled TV, the ultimate irony for JC to be plugging..........
