By now, it would seem to be common knowledge to anyone who has a remote interest in cars that Top Gear is one place that you never doubt when it comes to rolling out the most exotic of exotic supercars in the world without even trying to plead to the manufacturer to lend them the said supercar.

If you’re an automaker, when Top Gear asks if they can test drive your car, there’s no way that anybody could say no, especially with the amount of publicity the show – and the magazine for that matter – provides.

And if you need any more proof of that, this video is all you need to understand just how much clout Top Gear has in the industry. That, dear friends, is a Ferrari FXX - one of the rarest supercars running around in this planet – that’s being put to its paces at Ferrari’s legendary test track in Fiorano by renowned test driver Dario Benuzzi. Like we said, the FXX is a car that’s usually found in posters and wish lists, but, apparently, that’s not the case for Top Gear.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It has to come off sooner or later. FXX can’t possibly pass a speed bump without leaving some components behind.

The T1’s time should be back up there soon, Caparo has added auto adjustable front suspension since the first power lap. And yeah, take that FXX time off the list, it’s just not fair.
