Although not as hot as our fave motoring show, Fifth Gear's still a damn sight better than anything we've got over here on this side of the pond. Case in point would be Tiff Needell's tour of the Bugatti plant in the newest episode of the #2 UK driving show. No US show would ever have the guts to drop into an… » 9/04/07 9:19am 9/04/07 9:19am

A Few of Our Favorite Things: Smoke, Supercars and Tiff Needell
