"'New' Top Gear" has been with us for nearly twenty years. In that time it has evolved as has its subject: cars. Petrolheads aren't the entirety of the "Top Gear" audience, as "Top Gear" is a show first and foremost about fun, but the unique form that fun always takes is fun in automobiles, be they cars, lorries, or even sometimes the occasional motorcycle. The brilliance of "Top Gear" is how they managed to make cars interesting, even to an audience that isn't already fascinated by them. The casual viewer of "Top Gear" will, through osmosis, learn about cars in-depth in ways the average person can't imagine.
How well do you know cars? More importantly, how well do you remember old episodes of "Top Gear"? The show has featured dozens of cars over the years, more than one leader board for lap times, several cars for interviewees to drive, and quite a few very cheap cars the hosts put through hell. Knowledge of these machines can involve the technical, as in what sort of differential the car has. It may involve the artistic, as in which design studio styled the car, or it may involve the plot of the show itself, and what became of the car in question. Do you think you'll be able to name even six of them?
