The 13th series of Top Gear came to an end last night with Jeremy Clarkson’s odd feature on the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage.
The show featured James and Jeremy trying to make adverts for the new Scirocco commercial – all be it in particularly bad taste.
Jay Leno was the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car – a brilliant guest with hilarious anecdotes and one of the world’s greatest car collections.
But it was the end which got everybody talking. With the slow music from 28 Days Later playing in the background Clarkson talked about how the days of the supercars are numbered.
He said pretty much nothing about the Aston Martin and producers didn’t play the show’s theme tune at the end credits.
Many are wondering if Sunday’s episode was the last.
Personally, I thought the Aston feature was one of the series highlights. Yes, it was quite self-indulgent but it was beautifully shot against a stunning backdrop with a truly spectacular car. Many disagree.
Expert Guide editor Keith Collantine said: “I don’t think they hit the tone they were aiming for. I love Top Gear for their unabashed celebration of the pleasure of driving so I wanted to hear more about the car – what we got instead was rather sombre and dreary. But at least they’re not afraid to do something original.”
