If you haven't downloaded last night's Top Gear through some nefarious means, you missed one of the few palatable car reviews the trio has done this season. In addition to taking the BMW X6 globe-trotting and putting the all-new, 325-hp Vauxhall Insignia VXR though its paces, Hammond track tested the Lexus LFA in a segment that brought out our inner nine-year-old.

Get past the flashy graphics and obligatory power slides, and the TG grew came away with a similar stance on Lexus' first foray in the world of supercars as us – impressed and perplexed. With more power and just as much tech as a Nissan GT-R and 0-60 time and a raison d'être on par with the Ferrari 599 GTB, it's the price (and a lack of heritage) that leaves Clarkson and Hammond reeling. Make the jump for both the review and the damp Power Lap, and as always, you can get the full episode in high-def glory over at FinalGear.
