On mother-knows-best Top Gear, Mrs Clarkson, Mrs Hammond and Mrs May dropped in to help their sons deliver verdicts on three new city cars. Richard looked at the BMW 3 series, and Jeremy got to grips with a new Cadillac. We took one limo, all dressed in white, and attempted to jump over an American-style outdoor wedding. Of course, no Top Gear stunt would be complete without the destruction of caravans. Cadillac is famous for huge, wobbly pimp-mobiles with enormous fins and pink paint. But the new CTS-V is its attempt to produce a Euro-style sports saloon. With the engine from a Corvette, it certainly had the power. But, thanks to having more warning bongs and bleeps than a passenger jet, it didn't really float Jeremy's boat. Omid Djalili describes himself as Britain's funniest Iranian stand-up comedian. He had some interesting tips on avoiding road-rage, and Iranian cars. Mrs Clarkson, Mrs May and Mrs Hammond came down to the track to give us their opinion on three compact cars: the Renault Modus, Peugeot 1007 and Honda Jazz. They were rated on the sort of things that are important when you aren't 45 going on 18. Jeremy has never once in a review mentioned tuning a radio into Classic FM. Mrs Clarkson, on the other hand, won't release the handbrake until the radio is set-up and ready. Mrs May also looks beyond James' criteria. For example, she's keen on acceleration, and good cornering.
