Hammond's Best Test Drive of Top Gear Series 7

The Mazda MX-5.

It was a tough choice, though. Richard had only 4 test drives: the Ascari KZ1 - the British new comer, the Pagani Zonda F - one of his dream cars, the Marcos TSO GT2 - bouncing back from bunkruptcy and the Mazda MX-5 - the top class Japanese roadster.

Although Richard showed us each car's personalities and charms brilliantly as always, he talked most affectionately, respectfully and eloquently in the MX-5 review. His analysis and explanation clearly told the viewers why the car had always been one of the best in its class. Besides, his love for the MX-5 was obvious in how he stamped on the accelerator, how he often changed its snappy gear lever and how he enjoyed its simple, light and agile ride.

"THE FACT IS A CAR CAN ONLY BE GREAT WHEN EVERYONE WHO'S MAKING IT IS COMPLETELY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT IT'S MEANT TO BE. AND THAT IS THE CASE WITH THE MX-5."

Whenever I happen to see an MX-5 as I drive on city streets, it reminds me of Richard's happy face in this review and makes me feel, as a little car nut from Japan, proud of the country's down-to-earth, precise motor engineering.
