More than just a show to review new cars, Top Gear is essential viewing. Not just for petrol heads, it also has a huge following amongst people with little or no interest in cars - both male and female.

It's not hyperbole to suggest that when Jeremy first appeared on old-style Top Gear, his style changed the face of modern motoring journalism. He did this by realising that people were less interested in being told about a car's valve timing, compression ratios and tyre sizes, than they were in knowing whether a) said car would improve their general quality of life and b) if being seen driving one would make attractive people want to sleep with them. When Top Gear returned in 2002, the show took this philosophy, added rocket-boosters and ran with it. The rest, as they say, is history.
As far as Jeremy's car history goes, it's fair to say he practices what he preaches. Over the years, his garage has played host to a variety of exotic cars including an Escort RS Cosworth, Ferrari F355, Mercedes SL55 AMG, Ford GT and Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Well, you would, wouldn't you?
