Product Description

Races, chases and things on fire; treat yourself to a bucketload of Top Gear's attempts to get melted, hurt or drowned.

To more cries of "How hard can it be?", "That’s not gone well" and "You insufferable Oaf!", Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May gallantly risk humiliation in another series of magnificent challenges, where petty rivalries are taken much too far…

Features:

Amphibious Cars: The Sequel
The magnificent return of the homemade amphibious cars, as the lads drive their vehicles to Dover and across the Channel. Well, that was the plan…

Bugatti Veyron vs Eurofighter
Place your bets. A mile and back: vertically and horizontally; Hammond in one of the world’s fastest cars, the RAF in a fighter plane with a maximum speed of 900 mph.

Race Across London
James in a massive Mercedes, Hammond on a bicycle, the Stig on public transport (!) and Jeremy in a racing speedboat. Of course the car will make it across the capital first. Won’t it?

Motorhome Racing
The rules are ‘quite’ strict: it’s a no-contact race; drivers must sleep overnight in their camper vans before the race and be able to drive home afterwards. So, how come there’s a kitchen unit on the track?

The Greatest Driving Road
Scouring the Alps for the perfect road – beautiful scenery, pure pedal-to-the metal driving and a rush of adrenaline – in light-weight supercars – have the boys died and gone to heaven?

Fiat 500 vs BMX
The Fiat 500 has been reborn as a city runabout for fashionable and sexy young people. James May is none of these things, but surely he can beat a pair of scruffy herberts on titchy bikes around Budapest?

The 24 Hour Race
The Britcar 24-hour race at Silverstone is a gruelling test of driver stamina, skill and car reliability – so guess who’s entering a BMW 3-series powered by bio-diesel that they grew themselves?

DVD EXTRAS
Track Heroes: Lewis Hamilton & Simon Cowell
Lap & Extended Interviews
Ride With The Stig In The No.1 Lap Car
Front Row Seat
In the Eurofighter & Lamborghini Gallardo

Product Description

Three hours of ingenious plans, foolhardy ventures and fuel-injected rivalry from the 'Challenge' slot of the popular BBC car show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fans needn't worry! This is EXCELLENT! 2 Jun 2008
By R. Wood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Well, here we are again. Another Top Gear DVD, and one that should be considered essential on subject matter alone. Let's face it, the Challenges are the BEST part of the show as they test Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow to their limits and beyond, in tasks that are extreme, barmy, exciting, surprising, hilarious and (more often than not) end in disaster.

Top Gear: The Challenges was a brilliant DVD, I thought. It had the best challenges ever in the show's history, which for that reason alone, made it worth buying and cherishing. However, the DVD was criticised by many regarding the editing and the presentation. The menus were awkward and difficult to operate, the sequence of challenges were broken up and scattered so it was hard to follow them properly, and the scene selection wasn't as well conceived as it should've been. Personally, none of this bothered me, though I could understand why it annoyed others.

But first things first, what exactly can you expect from Top Gear: The Challenges 2? All the best challenges from the tenth series, which is the only logical thing to do, seeing as how all the best challenges from the show's HISTORY have been released previously.

The Challenges here are Amphibious Cars: The Sequel (where they cross the Channel), The Bugatti Veyron vs. The Eurofighter, Motorhome Racing, Fiat 500 vs. BMX, the lads' search for The Greatest Driving Road, The 24 Hour Race (at Silverstone) and the epic Race Across London (featuring James in a Mercedes, Richard on a bicycle, The Stig on public transport and Jeremy in a racing speedboat). These challenges are all fresh, and while perhaps not as classic as the last batch, there're nonetheless excellent, featuring all the essential stuff that makes Top Gear the cracking entertainment that it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 7 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
I have just recieved this DVD and it was amazing. Its got good graphics well laid out and good challanges aswell. And is always good for a rainy day this is a good DVD to get. Though i didnt order it from amazon i got it from the shops as it would be cheaper than this with postage and packaging. A good DVD in all and a must have for a Top Gear fan. Honestly

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Addition! 20 Jun 2008
By Craig Taylor VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After the poor editing in the last Challenge DVD, it is pleasing that the BBC and 2 Entertain have taken notice. The DVD is nicely edited, with each feature running in it's entirety before moving onto the next.
The features include some of the best challenges from the last series. My favorites are the Amphibious Cars: PArt 2, the 24hour race, the race across London and the Motor Home Racing. There are also a few decent extras too!
It is priceless entertainment and has left me hungry for more. Perhaps we can expect to see the caravan, the van and the tractor challenge on DVD soon! I surely hope so!

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatness... with a slight drawback 21 Oct 2008
By Kalah
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of challenges with our favourite team of car presenters and their house-trained racing driver. If you're a fan of the Top Gear programs, you need this on DVD.

The video is crystal clear, the sound is good, and there are English subtitles if you need them. You also get the interviews/laps by Lewis Hamilton and Simon Cowell, but don't be fooled by the "extended interviews" tag. They're just the normal interviews the way they appeared on TV. The other extras are for hard-core enthusiasts, but not really necessary if you prefer watching the program and the guys interacting rather than the cars.

The one drawback I wil mention is that the MUSIC is different from the one used in the TV show. Due to the unique way in which the BBC is funded, they were able to use a variety of movie soundtracks and collections on the show. But since this DVD is a commercial thing, they had to change all the music. And while the TV show music blokes know what they're doing... the guys who did this don't. In short, the music was better on the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Top Gear DVD so far.........by miles. 6 Jun 2008
By G. Ford
Format:DVD
If you've been wondering whether or not to buy this DVD then wonder no more. It's BRILLIANT! Another great series of Top Gear has been followed up with a great DVD, without doubt the best package yet.
This has all of the funniest challenges packed with the usual legendary TG banter as well as, at last, some great extras. The multi-angle option of Stig burning up the track in the Ascari A10 is a must for any petrolhead!
The setup is also excellent and is a huge step forward from the previous Challenges release. Now you can navigate easily between each programme which means you can watch each one when you want rather than sitting through the whole feature.
Bring on the new Series and the next DVD!!

Being an avid fan of top gear, especially the challenges, i couldn't wait to see this dvd.
My expectations of this were underestimated, it was brilliant. This some of the best challenges including: The race across London, the diesel powered race car, the eurofighter race and the amphibious cars. Good old top gear, and you've got to love the stig, especially when he uses public transport. Never thought Id see the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's gone well 18 Aug 2009
By J. Dale
Format:DVD
The next Top Gear Challenges DVD is here and is important on mentioning it alone on the subject as why to buy this already. This time around the boys are indeed busy in the latest bunch of challenges included are Amphibious Cars: The Sequel, The Bugatti Veyron vs. The Eurofighter, Motorhome Racing, Fiat 500 vs. BMX, the lads' search for The Greatest Driving Road, The 24 Hour Race and the Race Across London (featuring James in a Mercedes, Richard on a bicycle, The Stig on public transport and Jeremy in speedboat).

These are more newer challenges from which most take place in the tenth series and are highly enjoyable to laugh at as the boys in most challenges end up with a disaster or embarrassing moments. However, has the BBC listened to our complaints about the first DVD? YES THEY DID! In fact this now more improved with a revamp on the menu's, navigation is better in scene selection, none of the challenges are broken up and taken out of sequence. You just watch one entire challenge before moving onto the next, which won't make you go backwards and forwards anymore.

Your probably wondering what's the best way to tip it all off? How about some neat little Extra's like extended interviews with Lewis Hamilton and Simon Cowell and Lap Times, including a ride with The Stig in the No. 1 Lap Car. With me, I buy Top gear DVD's for the sake of it on entertainment purposes, so you've got better presentation, no cuts, up to scratch menus and extras! Well what are you waiting for? Go get it, you won't be sorry...
