Review

Some non-fans of this show would argue it has always been a midlife crisis on wheels, or certainly for the last 20 years or so. Tonight’s final episode of the current (very short) series embraces that idea with a look at the kind of flashy two-seaters men tend to buy when they can finally afford the things they dreamt of as kids. 

“Let's face it,” Chris Harris noted in a recent interview, “If we were to look at the Top Gear audience, there are probably quite a few men in that position." So he and his co-presenters put their chosen midlife-crisis cars through a triathlon. Elsewhere, Harris also has fun driving the Toyota GR Yaris, a rugged little rally car you can take on the road.
