Everyone loves the Stig, and it's hard to blame them. Whether it is the British, American, Australian or even Russian versions of Top Gear, there is something undeniably cool about a mystery man who can lap a track as quick as the top racing drivers in the world.

When Google Street View showed up at the Top Gear test track to add it to the mapping service, the Stig was also there in a white Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. He drifts around the little Opel like it's standing still and puts on quite a show for the cameras.

You can check out the video below, along with the Google Street View map of the whole lap. Enjoy!

      Ironically, I had to GOOGLE, "The Stig" to find out what or who that was.

        So you must not be one of the 750 million viewers of Top Gear.

          I don't watch a lot of TV, I mostly hike, bike ride, cruise my cars, workout and stuff. TV has never been a big thing for me. Although, I do enjoy Autoblog!

          I like Top Gear, but there is no way it has three quarters of a billion people watching.
