This title contains the following challenges -

Train Race What would Top Gear have been like in 1949? To find out, Jeremy took a newly built steam train, James an old Jaguar and Richard a legendary – if painful – motorcycle for a race from London to Scotland.

Electric car The question – could Top Gear build an electric car for less than the cost of a G Wiz? The answer was yes, but it looked like a robot’s tool shed.

Ice Racing Proper petrolheads reckon you can’t have fun in a car unless it’s rear-wheel drive. Take three rear-wheel drive coupes on a trip across France, for some unexpected ice racing.

Police cars Top Gear set about finding British bobbies the perfect disposable cop car, thereby allowing them to make us proud on the world stage of Police! Action! Kill! programming.

Classic rally Jeremy, Richard and James had never bought classic cars at auction before. How hard it could be? Cue distinctly mixed purchases on a Majorcan odyssey.

Commie Cars Did the Communists ever build a good car? To find out, Jeremy and James got together a load of funny looking vehicles and tested them at that great symbol of Cold War Britain, Greenham Common airbase.

Ken Block To find out more about rally driver - and internet video clip sensation – Ken Block, James was sent to America for an eye widening passenger ride with the man himself. Good job he packed spare underpants.

Portofino The Riviera was the cool place to be seen in the 1960s. But the congested glamour hotspot now is best negotiated by boat according to James. Richard disagreed, so he got himself a 1960s Ferrari Daytona to have a sun kissed race.

Fiesta test Top Gear received a letter from a man called Mr Needham asking why the programme didn’t ‘test cars properly any more’. Stung by this criticism, Jeremy set out to perform the most thorough road test possible.

Audi vs skiers The Audi RS6 is a fast estate car, but is it faster than two irritating lithe Frenchmen who spend their days pretending to read poetry books so they look more attractive to chalet girls? Richard went to France to find out.

McLaren F1 vs Bugatti Veyron Is Bugatti’s mighty 1000 horsepower Veyron faster than McLaren’s legendary F1 hypercar? Richard went to Abu Dhabi, persuaded the local police to close a long straight road, and set about finding the answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet more essential outings from the lads! 21 July 2010
Volume 4 in the Top Gear Challenges DVDs, like the ones before it, has plenty to satisfy fans' appetites and is again so reflective of the show's consistent quality. Like Volume 3, this is a two-disc set with room for some superb extras. But the sheer number of challenges collected here (more than any previous compilation), means that the whole programme is actually spread across the two discs, making viewing this time come across as a true journey with plenty of hilarities and excitement.

So which famous exploits of Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow are present this time round? The Train Race from London to Scotland (with Jeremy in the Tornado steam locomotive, Richard on the Black Vincent motorcycle, and James in the old Jaguar), the attempt to build an Electric Car (as reviewed in Autocar), Ice Racing, the Police Cars (FINALLY!), Classic Rally, a Fiesta road test, Commie Cars (as tested by Jeremy and James), James' day with internet sensation Ken Block, the Audi RS6 against a couple of Skiers, James in a boat against Richard in a Ferrari in the Riviera and finally a test to see if the almighty Bugatti Veyron can surpass the legendary McLaren F1 hypercar. That's an unprecedented ELEVEN challenges collected for a DVD release, which is uncanny.

Now, because this is Top Gear, and it's new challenges, it's obviously essential purchasing. And the consistent freshness of these releases means you still won't be disappointed. The Train Race is absolutely excellent, due to Jeremy being on the magnificent Tornado and Richard coming into his element as `the Black Shadow' and the true-to-form high-stakes nature of the challenge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clarkson et al are a real challenge 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD only to obtain the Jag, bike and Tornado race to Edinburgh, you can keep the rest.

But a steam locomotive new built from historic blue prints with hindsite tweaks and modern day metalurgy,doing what it does best at the hands of great artisans (apart from one!) in my opinion makes mesmerizing television. Add the challenge of the other two on Bike & Jag added that extra interest.

I do feel Jeremy Clarkson and to a degree the other two cabelero's are hugely over indulged but that is only my personal opinion and they do seem to go from strength to etc, and if you warm to their shows it's a great DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Crikey, it's the Rozzers! 7 Jun 2010
By J. Dale
Back again with Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow that put their own lives to the limit and beyond in these challenges that have proved quite dangerous, funny, extreme and painful (if you argue your case when riding the Vincent Black Shadow Bike in 1949!). As we all know, the challenges in Top Gear always provide a usual humour and utter words of 'Cock', 'Ambitious but Rubbish' when something usually goes wrong which is predictable.

Continuing the theme from the Third Top Gear Challenges DVD, the Menus are animated in the view of a Speed Dial Gauge with some of the challenges been shown, the scene selections is still perfect and there are extras like the last volume. Sound like Top Gear heaven? It gets better to the list of challenges including the Train Race in 1949, Electric Car (Geoff), Ice Rear-Wheel Racing, Classic Rally's at Auction, Fiesta test in Shopping Mall, Communists Car, Rally Driver Ken Block and James May, Audi Vs. Skiers, Richard in a Car and James in a Boat Race and the McFlaren Vs. Veyron. All of these challenges has got tremendous amount of humour and laughter to fill you up with and so many comments that never fail to raise the smile even more.

However the challenge that is included that will be mentioned often is the Police Car Challenge, this challenge was the most anticipated one and mercifully the BBC listened and now the challenge is included in this DVD with the rest. This will certainly put a smile on many people's faces for now.

For 200 minutes of Top Gear, what more can be included, I don't know maybe a second disc for the second time giving more Extra's?
