LOL John, what are you like matey! Ha! Ha! Yeh, gotta agree definitely an oldie and a goodie. This vid does appear a few times in different threads on here...but still worth watching. Clarkson could have given the Coug a few more beanz, as I don't think he was truly pushing it that hard...or at least thats the way it looks anyway.

Nice one bud :)

He needed a louder exhaust as the F1 car drowned it out whistling..gif

Seriously though, I'd have loved to have been driving the cat around Silverstone - particularly when the F1 car flew past :D

Oh I don't know, if you You Tube the Top Gear review he did of the Cougar when it first came out (the one where he pitched it against an Alfa GTV) he was pretty complimentary about it then too.

He was. His only criticism was that it was fairly underpowered compared to the Alfa GTV6, Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo and 3.0 V6 Pug 406 Coupe is was directly competing against.
