#623-Top Gear Supercar Fuel Crisis race.
This must be one of the weirdest Top Gear races ever! This is one of my favourite Top Gear races ever! The first race is where Jezza decides to do a race to see which SUPERCAR....YES, SUPERCAR.... is the most fuel efficient. He pits a Ferrari 599GTB Fiorano with a 6.0litre V12 engine with 611bhp, a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster with a 5.4litre S/C V8 engine with 617bhp, a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 with a 6.5litre V12 engine with 631bhp, an Aston Martin DBS with a 6.0litre V12 engine with 510bhp and lastly an Audi R8 V8 with a 4.2litre V8 engine with 420bhp. Each car had to have 1 gallon of petrol in their tanks. The Audi R8 won the race with the car averaging 5.0mpg.
The second race is more subtle, an E90 BMW M3 with a Toyota Prius. The M3 did 19.4mpg in 10 laps around the TG Test Track, while the Prius did 17.2mpg. Weird, eh?
