Fifth Gear - Series 12 (2007) [PDTV]
Fifth Gear (formerly 5th Gear) is a motoring television magazine from the United Kingdom. Fifth Gear first aired in 2002 as a replacement to the original incarnation of the BBC show Top Gear, which was cancelled in 2001 due to low ratings. Five originally wanted to carry on using the Top Gear name, but the BBC refused. Several of Top Gear's ex-presenters, including Quentin Willson, Tiff Needell and Vicki Butler-Henderson were hired by Five to present Fifth Gear of which some still remain with newer hosts Jason Plato, Tim Shaw, Tom Ford & Jonny Smith.
Tiff Needell kicks the twelfth series off in style by subjecting the fastest car in the world - the 890,000-pound Bugatti Veyron - to its first ever television test. Jonny Smith tests a potential revolution in city transport, the Mitsubishi 'i'. England rugby star and Dancing on Ice supremo Kyran Bracken is given some circuit driving tuition from Jason Plato. And Tom Ford tests the new Maserati GranTurismo coupe.
