And now they're both ex-"Top Gear" employees.
Ben Collins may have been outed as The Stig a few years ago, but he’s still banking on his celebrity status. Wouldn’t you? Collins is, of course, a professional driver so it makes sense for him to be invited to drive many of the latest and best supercars in existence. And one of those cars is the brilliant Lexus LFA, and, funnily enough, also happens to be fellow "Top Gear" alumni/ex-employee Jeremy Clarkson’s stated favorite car. Well, favorite car ever tested on the show, that is.
And now Collins has been handed the keys to what’s perhaps the best Japanese supercar of all time, and he gives it a solid thrashing at the Goodwood circuit. To help promote F range Lexus cars on sale today, Collins also takes the RC F Carbon and GS F sedan for a spin.
