Product Description

Top Gear - The Challenges 6 combines all the meaty goodness of incredible car-based endeavours with all the tasty treats of brilliant star guests and a delicious gravy of pure distilled Stigginess.

Counts as one of your recommended five-a-day intake of three silly men arguing, falling over and accidentally setting things on fire.

PLUS: Watch this DVD come to life with Augmented Reality. Access exclusive content using your Smartphone or Tablet device.

The ASHES
Jeremy, Richard and James welcome their colleagues from Australian Top Gear to Britain by picking them up in a prison van and calling all three of them ‘Bruce’ as Top Gear once again teeters on the brink of an international incident.

CAR TRAINS
Top Gear sets out to solve the problem of expensive rail tickets by making locomotives from old luxury cars and carriages from ancient caravans. What could possible go wrong? Apart from a prominent railway author getting covered in flies and poo.

CARS FOR 17 YEAR OLDS
What’s the ideal affordable, insurable, second hand car for someone who’s just passed their driving test? The presenters mentally knock upwards of 25 years off their own ages to find out. Warning: Contains the sight of James May wigging out to dance music whilst wearing a very silly hat.

SNOWBINE
The presenters decide to save Britain from the annual blizzard of headlines proclaiming ‘snow chaos’ by making normally idle combine harvesters work through the winter as snow ploughs. What could possibly go wrong with that? Apart from setting a man alight…

FOUR SEATER CONVERTIBLES
Jeremy, Richard and James are told to buy second hand, four seater convertibles for a challenge, fail to compare notes and accidentally end up with exactly the same sort of car. Although actually, they prove to be very different. Especially when it comes to what’s been left in the interior.

DEMOLITION
Can the presenters knock down a cluster of condemned houses using left over military hardware faster than a team of professionals can do it with proper demolition equipment? Erm… what do you think?

SKODA YETI
Jeremy embarks on a typically thorough test of a new family car involving fire, a helicopter, some ice cream, two dogs and a well known British actress in the glovebox.
AMY WILLIAMS vs WRC MINI
Radiant Winter Olympian and official Friend Of Top Gear Amy Williams gamely agrees to race unradiant and sport-o-phobic James May in a snow-bound battle between man and machine. Well, girl and machine.

JAGUAR XJ vs THE SUN
It’s a big Jag against the Big One as Jeremy decides to race against the very centre of the universe. Sort of. The rising and setting of the sun is more to do with the rotation of the earth but let’s not get bogged down in that now.

RANGE ROVER EVOQUE
James travels to the United States to drive the exciting new baby Range Rover. Contains dramatic scenery, light off roading and a well known diva with a suspiciously large Adam’s apple.
AMPUTEE RALLY
Richard meets the world’s pluckiest and most unusual rally team as they prepare to take on the challenge of a lifetime. Also featuring an appearance from a very old friend who has to promise not to write another book about it.

JAGUAR E-TYPE 50th
Jeremy celebrates the 50th birthday of the Jaguar E-type in typically understated style and drives the re-made Eagle Speedster which he proclaims to be the most beautiful thing in the entire world.

MARAUDER
Richard is in South Africa to drive quite possibly the world’s toughest thing. And drive it he does…right over some cars, through a wall and onto a big pile of explosives.

Special Features:
• Stig’s Cousins’ Laps
• Unseen Interview Clips of Sebastian Vettel, Jonathan Ross, Ryan Reynolds, Ross Noble and Alice Cooper
• Interceptors’ Titles Sequence
• Amy Williams’ Helmet Cam Footage
• Desert & Ice Montage
• Deleted Scenes

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest hits just keep on comin'! 11 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
Yet another brilliant two-disc set from BBC and 2entertain, collecting the best challenges from the last series. Ones to watch are definitely The Ashes against the Australian Top Gear presenters, the Snowbine Harvester and Car Train episodes, the rally car versus Amy Williams and the Amputee Rally.

Great assortment of extras include a wonderful compilation of the Stig's Cousins all over the world, deleted scenes and celebrity interviews and the hillarious Interceptors' title sequence. Great menu designs, wonderful structure, layout, picture/sound quality and useful subtitles.

All in all, an essential purchase for all fans of the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a thrill 12 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
I always have loved Top Gear i absolutely cannot get enough of the lads, there is an amazing sense of adventure stupidity and all round family fun, i can guarantee there nothing more fun then watching a bunch of old men fall over crash cars and challenge each over, if your a petrol head this is the show for you, if your more into car reviews with dignity then fifth gear will obviously be better, but if you like a little bit of fun then this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always entertaining 13 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
If you're buying this, then you almost certainly have the previous five and already know what you're getting. It's fun, it's silly and it's always worth watching.

A word about the "Augmented Reality": It requires an app for both iPhone & Android phones, but you need to have the most up to date equipment you can get for the AR to display properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Challenges,More Fun 8 Jun 2012
By The Neon Weasel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The boys are back,yet again,for another collection of mad challenges.Yes weve seen them before on the telly,but this is a really good collection,that serves up outrageous pratting about,not to mention a brilliant tribute to the glorious E-Type Jaguar on its 50th birthday.Though Amazon have listed the challenges in the wrong order,as does the DVD cover.The Maurauder segment doesnt close the DVD,thats the tribute to the E-Type,the Maurauder slots inbetween Amy Williams Vs WRC Mini and the Jaguar XJ Vs The Sun segments.

The Bonus disc offers up a full hour of extras,which are a bit of a mixed bag.All the clips of the Stigs cousins are strung together in a compilation,which is amusing in places.There are some unseen interview clips,Ross Noble's are quite funny(but then again Im a big fan),Jonathan Ross's is just odd,Alice Coopers very insightful,and for a world champion Sebastian Vettel proves to be very down to earth,and funny.There are some more clips from things that arent actually featured in the DVD,and one of Richard shooting at the Maurauder.

So if your a Top Gear fan,stick the challengers in the DVD player,and sit back and enjoy 4 hours a great entertainment.

It is very good and very funny in places. I haven't worked out the augmented reality part yet. I did have a go but it didn't do anything. I will try again sometime.
