Top Gear roasts their viewers’ cars with hilarious results

BBC’s Top Gear attracts all kinds of petrolheads, from supercar owners to first-time drivers. This eclectic audience provides plenty of comedic potential, however, as unsuspecting owners found out when Chris Harris roasted the audiences’ cars.

No one was safe from the prying eyes of Chris Harris, Freddie Flintoff, and Paddy McGuiness as they ‘evaluated’ their audiences’ cars during an outdoor filming session.

Due to recent restrictions, Top Gear had to film their latest season outdoors, creating a type of open-air drive-in cinema. This meant that there were plenty of unusual and strange cars in the audience, much to the amusement of Harris and co.

Due to current restrictions, Top Gear’s latest series was filmed in a drive-through cinema style setup.

Chris Harris roasts audience cars

Harris wastes no time getting down to roasting the cars of unsuspecting members of the public. Right from the word go, he picks on a young Mazda MX5 driver, joking that the giant wing on the back of his car “must be handy” for added downforce.

Next up, he discovers a wedge-shaped Triumph TR7 sat in one of the front rows. Summed up as “Paddy McGuiness in a car” once he discovers it has a V8 in the front, Chris says “so it goes like a stabbed rat… but I won’t say what it looks like!”

McGuiness asks: “Is there any [Ferrari] Californias out there Chris?” to which Harris promptly responds with “no, there’s a no **** policy on the door” in typical deadpan fashion.

Finally, Harris thinks he found his perfect car, but it turned out to be hiding a secret. An all-original BMW 3-Series M Sport convertible at the back of the audience catches his eye. Sadly, it wasn’t quite what it seemed; Upon discovering it was an automatic, he exclaims: “It’s an auto… NOO! All the boxes were ticked (apart from being manual) but it is absolutely gorgeous.”

It wasn’t all bad news though, as some of the cars were genuinely gorgeous. An early Porsche 911 G-Series Speedster was one of his highlights, having described the car as “H*rny.” Not only that, but a number of pre-WW2 Bentleys stood out in the crowd, with McGuiness joking at one point that the three elderly owners were the Top Gear team “in ten years!”

While car ownership and modification is a thoroughly personal choice, it’s always fun to have a laugh with each other, and that’s what the Top Gear team do best.

Enable shows off custom 100 Thieves-themed Mercedes C-Class Coupe

Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt, in his own words, “always stays fly” — and he’s backing it up by showing off this incredible Mercedes C Class Coupe, complete with a custom 100 Thieves wrap.

Enable joined 100 Thieves as a content creator after officially announcing his retirement from professional Call of Duty following the 2020 CDL season.

Having competed and won multiple championships under the 100T banner during the Black Ops 4 season, Enable built a strong affinity with the brand. Now, clearly, he’s proving it.

In the first episode of his new show ‘Run It Up’ on LA Thieves’ YouTube channel, Enable pulled up in the new whip and it’s just about as cool as you’d expect.

Pulling in to CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag’s reserved parking spot at the Thieves’ Cash App Compound, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was actually Nade’s car.

The C Class Coupe costs upwards of $47,000 alone, but the 100 Thieves wrap makes it truly priceless.

In 100T’s red and black colors, the design imitates that of the brand’s Geography collection that dropped way back in 2018, all black with jagged orange lines and the 100 Thieves logo emblazoned across the hood.

The car is guaranteed to turn some heads as it sets across Los Angeles, and with some of the unique designs that 100T come out with, we wouldn’t be surprised to see more as their collection grows.

For example, a matching Coupe with a wrap inspired by their Jam collection hoodie would definitely be worth the money. In fact, we’ll be disappointed if we don’t see more 100T-themed cars in the future.

This comes just a few months after FaZe Clan’s Alex ‘Adapt’ Prynkiewicz showed off his unreal FaZe-themed Nissan GTR. Don’t be surprised to see more esports and gaming brands splurging some cash on similarly creative rides in the future.
