Top Gear shows us why there aren't three wheeled cars driving around

Posted on by 22

As was pointed out earlier, Top Gear is back on the air in the UK. While BBC America is a bit slow to show us the new episodes, we have torrents to keep us up to date.

In the first episode of the season, we saw a Bentley Continental Supersports and the new reasonably priced car, a Kia Cee’d . Yet, that wasn’t the best bit. What really capped the episode off was some Jeremy Clarkson stupidity.

Clarkson decided to find out why there aren’t more three-wheeled cars in the world. He set out on a 14-mile journey that was shown to us on a map of Europe in the beginning of the clip. The car he selected to drive was the good old Reliant Robin, the same type of car that was used to build the space shuttle a few years back.

You’ll have to watch the video below to find out what happens, but it was quite amusing. Sorry about the poor video quality, but that’s life on YouTube.

Hit the jump for the video.

If you lean OUT FROM the turn on a three-wheeler, I’m sure it’s very easy... Tho if they were carrying any cargo ballast on the driver side, that’s tantamount to cheating the tip.
