Jeremy Clarkson says the Lexus LFA is no longer his favourite car of all time

But what's replaced it?

1y ago

For the past 10 years Jeremy Clarkson's had one answer to the most-asked question of all time: "What's your favourite car ever?" It's always been simple: the Lexus LFA.

The Japanese brand's riotous, symphonic, V10-powered supercar has long topped Clarkson's list. But in a recent interview with Ireland's 98FM to promote the Seamen Grand Tour special, Jezza claims the LFA has been knocked off its perch.

He won't tell us exactly which car has replaced it, and all he'll say is it's the car he recently used for filming a special of The Grand Tour in Madagascar.

Which, thanks to some shaky camera footage and internet rumours – we think to be an off-road-modded, previous-generation Bentley Continental GT. One with massive chunky tyres, wheel-arch extensions and a rollcage exoskeleton. Here's a blurry photo of it from one of The Grand Tour Fans' videos.

Now we're not saying he's gone completely mad – because we love the new Bentley Conti GT more than pretty much anything else, but is it really better than an LFA? Perhaps Jezza's reached that point in life where comfort, serenity and subtle power are more important than a supercar's ostentatious noise and looks.

Don't miss Seamen – get a free Amazon Prime trial

The next episode of The Grand Tour, called Seamen, doesn't look to feature any cars at all, but will feature the boys in boats navigating Vietnam's Mekong Delta. It looks fantastically silly – so grab a free 30-day Amazon Prime Video trial to make sure you don't miss it when it airs on December 13. That's only a week away, so hop to it.

    • You really think he’s that biased to like a car he made for a show he’s not on anymore where he didn’t take any of the cars he made or any of the other trio made home with him?

    • No i don’t but I do think that’s the best car he made between either of the shows and the fact he took it on dragons den (be it a joke or not) and even though it was and accident just waiting to happen that on a level Jeremy was somewhat proud of his...

  • LFA is a special thing. Love it or not. GT is just too reachable to anyone with enough money, which doesnt always means taste as well. And one more thing - LFA has no turbos, which is becoming a rare breed out there... that alone and that V10 makes it more special.
