Ask any man the first thing he would buy if he won the lottery and we guarantee you the answer would be – a supercar. It’s what every real man and every alpha woman aspires to – a blisteringly fast V8 engine, achingly high-tech design and style that snaps the necks of passers by as they watch it sloping down the high street putting the saloons and hatchbacks of mere mortals to shame.

One thing’s for sure, when it comes to cars, there’s nothing that gets the heart pulsing like a supercar, and the motoring geeks at Top Gear live out the fantasy, putting the most exotic, the most elusive and the most expensive to the test in the pages of this book. Between obscenely sexy photographs of the most exquisite machines the motoring world has to offer, you’ll find first-hand accounts of the driving experience, expert analysis of engineering expertise, speed and handling, all the stats to satisfy the most dedicated of car enthusiasts, plus special reports from Clarkson, Hammond and James May. And who better to test the prowess of these mastercrafted feats of modern engineering than Stig himself, who’ll do battle with the big-gun showstopping cars from the last three years to find out just who can claim the glory of fastest supercar.

Step into the driver’s seat and brace yourself for some serious car porn as we bring you the most tantalisingly beautiful supercars you’ll find in the world today. There’s only one word for it – Poweeerrrr!

James May

About the Author


James first appeared on Top Gear under the old format and became a permanent co-host in the second season of the revamped show. When James was first introduced, Jeremy Clarkson claimed he was "clearly a blithering idiot," because at the time James drove a Bentley T2. Not too much has changed since then as James continues to have love/hate relationships with Jeremy and other co-presenters Richard Hammond and Stig.

He has his pilot's license and has been known to tickle the ivories, both of which have come in handy when filming: watch James flying a caravan blimp and hear his Scirocco ad jingle. James once admitted he was fired from a well-known magazine for putting a secret message in a supplement—it's exactly that kind of fooling around that makes him perfect for the U.K.'s favorite motoring show.

In addition to hosting Top Gear, James has kept busy on television by presenting various shows including Jame May's 20th Century, James May's Big Ideas, James May on the Moon and James May at the Edge of Space. He's also authored several books with a range of topics about cars, history, alcohol and toys.

Richard Hammond

About the Author


Richard Hammond was born on December 19, 1969, in Solihull, West Midlands, England. He was attracted to automobiles from an early age and it was no surprise that it eventually became the course of his career. After passing from Harrogate College of Art and Technology, Richard Hammond took up the career of an automobile journalist.

In the early days of his career, Hammond worked for a number of radio stations in UK like Radio Lancashire, Radio York, Radio Leeds etc. Soon after, he started hosting the show "Men & Motors" and that was his first step towards automobile journalism.

In 2002, when the show Top Gear was repacked, Richard Hammond was selected as a co-host. Soon his popularity spread far and wide and his comments were thoroughly appreciated. He performed several stunts for the show including getting himself in a sinking car.

During one such stunt, Richard Hammond suffered a severe accident which resulted in a brain injury. Luckily, he was able to cope with it and returned to the show within mere four months. Though the news of brain injury was hidden from public, a full account of the incident was given in his autobiography, On the Edge. The book was pretty successful in the UK and inspired Richard Hammond to write his next book.

In September 18, 2008, Richard's second book, As You Do, was published. The book was about the life behind the scenes of Top Gear. Alike its predecessor, the book did a good number of sale in the UK. Presently, Richard Hammond is determined to continue his career further ahead on the fast lane.

Jeremy Clarkson

About the Author


Jeremy Charles Robert Clarkson (born April 11, 1960) is an English broadcaster and writer who specialises in motoring.

He writes weekly columns for The Sunday Times and The Sun, but is better known for his role on the BBC television program Top Gear.

From a career as a local journalist in the north of England, he rose to public prominence as a presenter of the original format of Top Gear in 1988. Since the mid-1990s Clarkson has become a recognised public personality, regularly appearing on British television presenting his own shows and appearing as a guest on other shows. As well as motoring, Clarkson has produced programmes and books on subjects such as history and engineering. From 1998 to 2000 he also hosted his own chat show, Clarkson.

His opinionated but humorous tongue-in-cheek writing and presenting style has often generated much public reaction to his viewpoints. His actions both privately and as a Top Gear presenter have also sometimes resulted in criticism from the media, politicians, pressure groups and the public.

As well as the criticism levelled against him, Clarkson also generated a significant following in the public at large, being credited as a factor in the resurgence of Top Gear to the most popular show on BBC Two, and calls for him to be made Prime Minister. Clarkson himself was keen to downplay his perceived influence on the British public, stating he regularly contradicts himself, and would make a "rubbish" Prime Minister
