Video: The Stig Takes Matters Into His Own Hands On The Book He Doesn't Want You To Read

Of all the Top Gear cast members, there’s no denying that the most mysterious of them is the man in the white helmet and jumpsuit. The man people affectionately call the Stig .

Unlike Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond, the Stig is a man shrouded in mystery, opting to have Clarkson introduce him with the phrase "Some say..." So the question has been around for years. What’s the deal with The Stig? Who is he? Where does he come from? Why does he love Ricky Martin?

Tons of questions and few answers. That is, until now.

See, the Stig now has a book. Well, actually it is a book about him called "The Stig. The Untold Story." Apparently, he wasn’t a big fan of the project by publisher Ebury and, as the promo video shows, has gone to great lengths to ensure that the public doesn’t even sniff the pages of the book.

Some say he doesn’t like to have his private life cast into the public spotlight while others say he’s just doing it to further promote the book. As a man whose actions (probably) reflect his words, The Stig’s actions at a local Tesco market gives you a hint that there might be something about this book that he doesn’t want us to read.

Enjoy the video, and the hot Lambo at the end.
