You might remember that a certain car show – oh, yeah, we remember too, it’s called Top Gear – also had a new season this year, though it wasn’t really worth our while too much.
But among the disasters there are always little gems – for example many consider Ken Block’s Ford Mustang hooning around London with Matt LeBlanc easily among the best bits. And probably due to popular demand, this brief moment has been turned into a longer and just as entertaining director’s cut. The BBC is looking to cut losses with the new Top Gear – they dismissed one certain host – and now released this ten-minute director’s cut. Because it’s TG, Block and his then (now it sports much more thanks to a turbo rework) 850 horsepower, four-wheel-drive 1965 Mustang known as “Hoonicorn” were dropped off by an army Chinook helicopter, in a container, at a haulage yard on the outskirts of London – where he incidentally finds LeBlanc.
They of course do some hooning around trailers, cranes, and trains, and then head out into the city to do some tourist sightseeing – since they’re both American. While drifting, at 100 miles per hour. And so they find some of the city’s most iconic places: Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, and Buckingham Palace. Interestingly enough, we’ll let you check up the video to see some interesting places you don’t really visit unless you know what you’re looking for.
