Watch The Stig Tame The Angry Aston Martin Vulcan

Track Car

The Stig wrestling with the track-only Aston Martin Vulcan is a match made in heaven.

Watching Top Gear’s Tame Racing Driver’s inhuman ability to throw a supercar around a test track never ceases to amaze and entertain. His replacement in The Grand Tour, ‘The American’ leaves a lot to be desired – we wish he would just shut up and drive like the Stig. You would think that the 800 horsepower Aston Martin Vulcan track monster would be hard to handle, yet the Stig seemingly has no trouble taming it around the track. On the outside, he makes it all look so easy.

But it’s a different story when we switch to 'StigCam,' which gives us a driver's eye view of the lap. Here you can see how he has to constantly wrestle with the wheel to keep the vicious Vulcan in check, and nearly loses it at the very end.

It also allows us to listen to the raspy roar of the Vulcan’s bellowing V12 in all its delicious glory - it sounds like an angry wasp. It’s such a shame the iconic Top Gear test track is being demolished to make way for affordable housing. The Eboladrome circuit in The Grand Tour simply doesn’t compare – it’s too technical and lacking in high-speed straights. Top Gear is returning this year with Matt LeBlanc at the helm alongside Chris Harris and Rory Reid. Presumably, it will be the last series to feature the iconic test track, but it will be interesting to see if they keep the rallycross section introduced last series now that Chris Evans is no longer in charge.
