Reviews

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.

Motorhomes
The motorhome has been with us for many years, but Jeremy, Richard and James are convinced they can do better. As this cliff-hanger of a film proves, they really can’t.

The Making of the Car Advert
Volkswagen are renowned for making the best car ads in the world. Jeremy and James are convinced they can do better. As these hilarious but hopeless attempts for the Scirocco prove, they really can’t.

British Sports Cars
In a surprisingly poignant film, the boys fire up three British sports cars and set out on a nostalgic road trip to look at what happened to our once great sports car industry.

Cheap Saloons in Germany
A cut price road trip across Europe’s engineering heartland, involving a hairy high speed autobahn run, the industry standard Oompah Band test, and a terrifying encounter with Das German Stig.

The Dakar Car Versus the Snowmobiles
In one of the most spectacular Top Gear challenges ever, Richard, at the wheel of a fearsome Dakar car, takes on some crack Swedish snowmobile racers in a race across a ski resort.

Topsy Turvy Reliant Robins
Jeremy sets out on an epic quest to get from Sheffield to Rotherham in a Reliant Robin that likes to fall over. Loads of “A” List northerners pop up in this crashtastic film, described by Harry Enfield as “quite funny.”

The Veyron in Hyperdrive
Bugatti unveils a new Veyron designed to be the fastest production car in the entire world. Only one man can take it to the max: Captain James T. Slow.

Airport Vehicles Race
Airports are just too slow. To solve the problem, Hammond organises a grid full of airport vehicles, fills them with mad Touring Car drivers, and a race of epic anarchy ensues. Everything crashes, nothing is solved.

The Caravan Airship
James May’s “Clear The Roads of Caravans Solutions System” takes to the skies as the world’s first Caravan Airship. Marvel at this new fangled creation as it fails to stop, go, steer or fly, and then causes chaos at an international airport.

The Twingo in Belfast
Enjoy one of Jeremy’s more extreme road tests as he takes the Renault Twingo on a spin, literally, through the Belfast sewers and then tries to catch a ferry. And misses.

May's Volcanic Adventure
A big volcano kicks off in Iceland. James May builds a car capable of tackling the fiery furnace on a journey to the centre of a piece of earth quite near the volcano.

Gravity Drop Race
Is a shonky old Beetle faster than a modern Porsche 911? Well it might be, if the Beetle’s a mile up with gravity on its side.

Special Features
• 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
• Outtakes

I got this the other week and I must say it is brilliant to watch, some of the challenges are really brilliant, specially the motorhome, trackday and caravan airship challenge. I would say however I'm slightly dissapointed that some have been omitted (but when it's such a big dvd, you can't really fit them all :) ) For example, the 17 year old challenge which I personally think should have been included in part 4 and I was expecting to be included in this version. I feel this was one of the most funniest they had since the original amphibious challenge in the original dvd, die hard top gear fans like myself will know what I mean (hopefully). I personally also feel that the Mima Art Challenge should have been included as like i said before they are some classic scenes from that particular challenge. I only say this just because I think big challenges should be balanced out a little then focusing more on the recent series.

Having said though, what is included, specially the extras are fantastic, specially the Lewis Hamilton interview which is very moving and gives a unique insight into how special Ayrton Senna was which I think is great for new F1 fans who never got to see Senna drive in the hayday.

Big Top Gear fans like myself will love this DVD and enjoy adding it to the collection, but I personally feel though, that they might be running out of ideas of what challenges to set (but who knows with the upcoming series 17) dvds like this might be as good in the future. But I'll still enjoy watching it :)

Whether it's building and testing amphibious/electric/police cars, buying second-hand cars and putting them through the most notorious trials imaginable, going on races, doing labours etc, the result of the Challenges that befall the Top Gear are always the same; instant, hilarious entertainment. I think it's safe to say that the Challenges are the highlight of the show's success.

Top Gear Challenges DVDs have long gotten to the stage now where they have a life of their own. Given the sheer quality of past collections, the special features and the memories to relive on your DVD player, it's no surprise that fans will buy these instantly upon release. Quality presentation backed up by fabulous extras? Instant seller!

And it's the same with volume 5. There's little to no reason NOT to purchase this latest collection, and it's worth noting that every release seems to be more determined to be bigger than the previous compilation. This time round, Top Gear: The Challenges 5 has a stonking TWELVE challenges collected on one disc (as opposed to Challenges 4 which featured eleven challenges spread across two discs), with special features devoted to Disc 2.

You can expect to revisit:

- Jezza, Hamster & Captain Slow build their own motorhomes (one of the most BRILLIANT challenges in recent years).
- Jeremy and James attempt to make a car advert for the Volkswagen Scirocco Diesel TDI - and FAIL spectacularly!
- A somewhat touching look at the fallen British Sports Car industry.
- Buying Cheap Saloons in Germany.
- Richard (driving the Dakar) racing a couple of Snowmobiles.
- JAMES (of ALL people!) driving the BUGATTI VEYRON (of ALL cars!)
- Richard testing the concept of Airport Vehicle Racing.

What can I say, Top Gear is like Marmite, some people love it, others can't stand it, I'm one of the former.

I've just spent my weekend watching this along with Top Gear - The Challenges 1-4 Collection [DVD] and Top Gear - The Great Adventures: 1-4 Box Set [DVD]. And it was a weekend well spent!

Full of funny moments, great cars and comedy humour, I'd highly recommend it to any Petrolhead or person with a sense of humour! :)

The top gear DVD challanges 5 is an absolute hit, it is not only crammed with extras including extended interview with lewis hamilton but more importantly extra reliant robin roll overs and lots more,

The DVD has some brilliant challanges such as motor homes, the caravan airship and reliant robin roll overs which is just brilliantly stupid, but the best is the car advert challange, infact they are all brilliant, sadly there are loads of challanges which have never been released from the BBC such as the undestructrable toyota challange, perhaps in time they will be released on DVD.

Buy it you wont regret it, absolute ten out of ten for the DVD.

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 rolling around in a Reliant Robin!). 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 with partial clips of the challenges included, 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 Motorhomes, Making a Car Advert, British Sports Cars, Car Saloons in Germany, Dakar Vs Snowmobiles, Reliant Robins, Veyron Hyperdrive, Airport Vehicle Race, Caravan Airship, Twingo in Belfast, May's Volcanic Adventure and Hammond's gravity Drop Race against the Beetle. 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.

For 270 minutes of Top Gear, what more can be included, I don't know maybe a second disc for the third time giving more Extra's? Why yes they did, on a second disc you get the Lewis Hamilton Extended Interviews, Alternative angles on the Zonda R, Veyron and more, Two extra Reliant Robin Rollovers, the Germany Fuel Run Challenge!, Deleted Scenes, Outtakes and more! The DVD is a structured Top Gear DVD and has no problem with navigation and yes it does include subtitles for English Hard of Hearing and an aspect ratio of 16:9 Anamorphic.
