Ever since the man in the white suit came out as Ben Collins, the news has been rolling on out to no doubt capitalize on such a popular topic of conversation. Collins was recently asked by The Daily Telegraph what his favorite car was during his time as the famous Stig. One might think it would have been a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, but you would be very wrong. His favorite car was the littleToyota Aygo, which was used to play car football.

He said: "We had about five or six touring car drivers on that day and we unanimously agreed we hadn’t had that much fun in a car that we could remember.

"The Aygo was the most fun although it was the cheapest."

That’s all well and good, but what about the high performance machines? For this category, Collins picked theBugatti Veyron Super Sports as the best high-end vehicle during his time on Top Gear, stating that it "was the fastest thing we ever drove".

So, what car does The Stig hate more than any others? That’s fairly easy if you remember one of the biggest wrecks Collins had during his time on the show. During a test lap, he lost control of a Koenigsegg and damaged the very rare machine by putting it into some tires.

To find out more about Collins, you can pick up his new book, The Man in the White Suit: The Stig.
