The test driver, The Stig, never speaks a word and his face has never been seen (it being always hidden behind a tinted visor), despite guests frequently mentioning having talked with him. In some later-season episodes, he can be heard speaking in Morse code, which, after being decoded, is mostly random and funny nonsense.

From the beginning of the newly revamped series of Top Gear, the car that has been used in the "Star in a reasonably priced car" is a Suzuki Liana. This car has been used for seven seasons until season eight, when it was replaced by the Chevrolet Lacetti.

Jeremy Clarkson: Racing cars which have been converted for road use never really work. It's like making a hard core adult film, and then editing it so that it can be shown in British hotels. You'd just end up with a sort of half hour close up of some bloke's sweaty face.
