Broke BBC Orders Top Gear To Swap Exotics For Economy Cars


In an extremely controversial decision, cash-strapped BBC has tightened Top Gear‘s budget, ordering them to pass on the exotic supercars in favor of reviewing greener, more economical models. Despite Top Gear co-host Jeremy Clarkson’s earlier promise to flat-out ignore the push for more mundane vehicles, the show’s producers insist that changes must be made to keep in step with the tumultuous economy. Although BBC mouthpieces insist that the Ferrari’s and Bugatti’s that give the show its largest appeal will not be phased out entirely, they have confirmed there will be less screen time devoted to thrashing a ZR1’s throttle and more attention given to dispensing “practical” consumer advice.

…and yes, it gets worse.

Incredibly, it also appears as though a segment scheduled to feature a road trip behind the wheel of a Porsche’s and Lamborghini’s has been dramatically revised to replace the super-performance cars with the likes of the Toyota iQ.

Oh, the humanity.

    NO!!!!!!! I think this will cost them just as much money though. If they change the show that dramatically people will stop watching it. People don’t watch the Top Gear for practical car advice, they watch it for the exotics and the cross continental races. Hopefully the Jeremy and crew can keep it alive through this.
