It's hard for the Top Gear team to surprise us with outrageous tales since the show itself could almost be considered behind-the-scenes footage of some other, more traditional program. But producer Andy Wilman reveals 16 TG tidpits in the Telegraph, and it's hard not to be a little surprised at some of them.

Like #8, for example, about trying to get James May to chauffeur a Bengal Tiger in a range Rover Evoque through Death Valley. Or #1, in which he says, "I don't think anyone realises how much work goes into making these three look like f---wits." We'd never have guessed. You'll find the rest of Wilman's words here.

      Item 16 (flying car) isn't that hard. Hell, Monster Garage did it. Yeah, they used a Panoz, but the UK is full of cheap kit cars that would have the proper power to weight ratio. I say GO FOR IT. First one to crash horribly wins, cause you know it'll happen. Quickly.

        Yes, I want to see how reliable is that Mercedes Benz is with over a 100k miles.

      I don't know too much of the Bengal tiger part. Just watched tonight's episode, May picked up Cher not a tiger in a Range Rover Evoque? Anyways great episode as always, I hope they never cancel Top Gear :) . If only we could get some of that teenage craze from Jersey Shores onto TG hehe.

        May might have been better off with the Bengal tiger.

        The Evoque was amazing capable off-road, wasn't it? I won't spoil it, but there was a funny twist in that segment.

        so true, ever since he had that near-fatal car crash years back something changed with him
