* James May showed up on Gordon Ramsay's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTOfhQ_SZEg F-Word]]'' program and Ramsay put him through a "manliness test," involving: drinking snake whiskey, eating a bull's testicles, and eating rotten shark. May made it through the test without so much as a twitch, while Ramsay had to snatch a bucket away from him and puke into it in the end, prompting May to grin and say: "You disappoint me, Ramsay!" He also defeated Ramsay in the recipe challenge segment, after Ramsay had made fun of May's fish pie and joked that it would never win, ever, and he'd give up cooking if James won. JB comes back with the results and James won, which utterly stunned Chef Ramsay.

* Doubling as a SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: in series 17, Hammond did a segment about a rally car team made up of war amputees who were attempting to qualify for the Dakar Rally, one of the most difficult rally races in the world. Come the first episode of series 19, not only do we find that the team qualified for the Rally, but they finished it as well, a feat that not even some of the able-bodied teams in the Rally were able to accomplish.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmcmqTAu6b8 The finale to series 20]]: a celebration of all of the vehicles Britain has made, done through collecting them on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. What appears is a menagerie of what looks like ''hundreds'' of vehicles of every shape, from ice cream vans, lawnmowers, backhoes, and cargo trucks to classic Morgans, record-breaking dragsters, McLarens, and Aston-Martins. There's at least one military vehicle, both Ariel Atoms, and the New Bus For London. It's capped off by the presenters in Union Jack-bearing Jaguars driving down the line to end the episode.

** The sheer size of the farm they reach at the end. When they get to the drive, it takes them ''two hours'' to get from the gate to the farmhouse. The whole farm is ''3.2 MILLION acres''. To put that into perspective, the farm is the same size as Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex, AND Kent, COMBINED.

** From the start, Hammond and May were doing everything they could to make the fuel last, from managing tire pressure, to meticulously planning their routes, shedding as much weight as possible, to holding their bladder till they reached the Chunnel. Clarkson gunned it from the start and wasted as much fuel and power as possible. When he realized that he had passed his home and still had plenty of fuel he reaffirmed his position, if he really had the chance to win he was going to really try. The race had the slowest and most frustrating (for Clarkson) lead change in Top Gear (and most likely race) history. In the end Hammond made it first and Clarkson was right behind him. May having chosen a longer route to avoid possible traffic was 45 minutes late. The amazing thing is they all made it, though The Stig stole Hammond's moment.

moment. They all acknowledge that it's incredible that Jeremy's Jag made it despite his uneconomical driving, and it was even found that after the race, there was enough left in it to do ''another 120 miles''. Just... wow.

** For the record, the Toyota Hilux in question survived being driven down a set of concrete stairs, being submerged in the ocean for hours[[note]]accidentally.

They had to use scuba divers to recover it.[[/note]], being dropped from a crane, having a trailer dropped on it ''by'' a crane, being driven through another trailer, being hit with a wrecking ball, being '''set on fire''', and for the piece-de-resistance, being chained to the roof of a 22-story building that was then '''''demolished'''''. After every instance, it was able to be started again and driven after a few minutes' work[[note]]Reconnecting disconnected cables, etc. The only part they ''had to'' replace was the windshield, since the first one got lost when the Hilux was submerged in the ocean. It was not only illegal, but very dangerous to drive the Hilux without it.[[/note]] by a mechanic not allowed to use any replacement parts and restricted only to a few simple hand tools. The Indestructible Toyota Hilux currently resides in a place of honor in the Top Gear studio, atop a dais. And how did they get it on that dais? '''''They drove it into the studio.'''''

** Mind you, the first time Hamilton did his lap he did cut at least one corner (Hammerhead, helping his line and exit quite a bit), and between the Stig's lap and Lewis' second lap the track had been partly resurfaced and seemed faster overall. Ever since Rubens beat the Stig, [[spoiler: three other drivers have managed it as well, including Sebastien Vettel, Mark Webber, and the aforementioned Lewis Hamilton.]]
