"Fastest car in the world" vs Yacht | New Zealand Race | Top Gear | Series 20 | BBC


Jeremy and James head to New Zealand to take part in a race from the Coromandel Peninsula to the northern tip of the North Island. James had to cover 220 miles (350 km) in the America's Cup yacht Oracle, whilst Jeremy had a much longer 410 miles (660 km). The Oracle's crew was made up of James, Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie and several America's Cup winners. Jeremy's Auris is a rental, thus "the fastest car in the world", and he has little regard for its safety... Taken from Episode 1, Series 20.

The Spaniel had to doggy paddle to the beach


I was living in Kaitaia, a town near 90 mile beach when they filmed this. People had been told that they came up north straight from Auckland airport on Sunday evening and that they would be racing a load of cars on 90 Mile beach on the Tuesday, there were people waiting at the beach with signs and the local iwi (indigenous tribe) was angry because they werent consulted.

What we didnt know was they went east to the Coromandel where the race started. People drove up to 90 mile people from as far south as Auckland to get a glimpse, on monday and tuesday morning, so when Jeremy came through on Tuesday evening everyone had gone home. The helicopter filming was done later (hence the car colour change story as to not draw attention. Only a surf board renter claims to have actually seen the real car racing through the river past the dunes.

According to some people who were on the beach at the time, James arrived something like 2-3 hours before Jeremy did (which is why its bright when jame

Jeff Foxworthy said it best: "Buying a used rental car is like going to a place of ill-repute looking for a wife. Anything that's been ridden that hard and by that many people, you really don't want to put your key in it"!

The length of a shore line changes depending on what unit you measure it in. Miles, or yards, or feet, or inches(Kilometres, metres, cm, mm.), it will get longer the smaller the unit used.

Why top Gear stoped


7:03 when James reaches the flag pole, there are foot prints everywhere. When Jezza arrives at around 7:20, there are no prints in the sand... Who was really there first ?

After that you can throw the car away or sell it on Craigslist. Old man drove it. Took care of it.

Andrei Săcăluş 

Drive it like you rent it!

Craig Anderson 

From the 90 mile beach website, "Rental companies won't allow their cars on the sand." Hmm.

Jan Sanono 

I dont know why but when Jeremy went into the rental car shop and said there was a maniacal tractor doing 70 km/h I burst out in laughter

90 mile beach because you can do 90mph on it

Avery Hayes 

They should do a race with one of the shark boats that can dive and jump in L.A.

“This is called 90 Mile Beach because it is *exactly* 55 miles long.”

Nathan Smith

Kid gamer 

It would’ve been much better if Jeremy was on the yacht

Joe Gilmour 

What i don't get is that nz has a yhauting team


That Toyota will be pretty fragile after the impact, it'll probably only last 300,000 miles. Then the damage might need to be fixed.

90 Mile beach is 55 Miles because 90KM is 55 miles

For those who do not know. When a sail boat jives, the tiller is pulled away from the sail. If the sail is on port side, you would be sitting on starboard. So, you pull the tiller to starboard. Vice versa. For tacking. You push the tiller to the sail. Away from where you are sitting. I know this bc I race Opti sailboats and have nearly won many races.

Boris Movies 

Fastest car?

Ben Sutherland 

5:31 anyone notice its blue again

Topgear sucks after the boys left for the Grand Tour

chris gee 

Love the running joke that if you turn on a radio in New Zealand all they ever play is the same old song by Crowded House.

Donovan Campbell 

The car probably could've continued going.
