Aired: 2002-

The best damn car show period! Although it originally started back in 1977, Jeremy Clarkson retooled the show in 2001 to be more humorous, more critical, and just flat out more fun. Beautifully shot and edited, with sharp, witty hosts, you get it all: celebrity interviews, car reviews, and crazy challenges. Plus, at long last, and answer to the question, "What's faster: a Bugatti Veyron or a Typhoon fighter jet?"

The show was so successful when relaunched in 2002 that two international versions were created in Australia and Russia.
