Top Gear mourned the loss of old stig, cars went fast, a new Stig was delivered, and Stephen Fry popped by. We were all shocked to witness the death of a legend. The Stig died during a routine nitrous injection-powered blast along HMS invincible. Sad though all that was, we've got a whole new Stig, seemingly delivered from the great Stig factory in the sky. And new Stig has promised to punish our cars even more than the old one. The first car new Stig got to try out was the BMW M3 CSL. Before Stig got his hands on it, Mr Clarkson took it on a pleasant drive round a few country roads ... at 100mph. Stephen Fry jumped behind the wheel of our reasonably priced car and took it for a spin. While he really is a terribly nice chap, he didn't give the Liana an easy ride and managed a decent lap time of 1.54. For years, driving anywhere during the summer months has been plagued by slow-moving lavatories on wheels. Or caravans. They're frequently tugged along by Volvos, and that gave Top Gear an idea. Why not jump a Volvo over some caravans. Then, when either or both got destroyed, everyone would be happy, and balance would be restored to the universe. here were threats of physical violence as Jeremy, James and Richard argued about which, out of the BMW Z4, Porsche Boxster and the Honda S2000 was the better roadster. The only way to settle the argument was to put new Stig to the test and see which car did the fastest lap on the track. This meant that Jeremy was proved wrong, and the Boxster was the best roadster.
