What Would Happen If Richard Hammond and James May Traded Cars For a Day?

Which cars would each of them choose?

3y ago

I have a few friends where I wouldn't mind borrowing one of their cars for the day, but none of these friends are Richard Hammond or James May. Trading cars between the two of them takes the game up to a whole other level, and that's exactly what this piece is about.

Once again, we turn to the September 22nd Facebook Live video. A fan asked about Richard and James trading cars for a day, and which car would they request from the other. James thought about the consequences of letting Hammond borrow one of his cars: "I've got to think about which cars I wouldn't mind you having on its roof."

Richard responded by asking to borrow James' Ferrari "the new one." James immediately replied "No." As far as which of Hammond's cars he would borrow, May replied:

"Since it's technically mine, your E-Type Jag." To which Richard responded "It's not technically yours in anyway!" For those that don't recall, James had the brilliant idea to "buy" Hammond's Jag by simply putting a sum of money into Hammond's account with "Money for E-Type" written next to it, thereby initiating a hostile takeover.

As of today, the Jag appears to still be in Hammond's posession.

  • I just would pay to watch Hamster announcing May his car in the pit.

  • May would probably would go mean with Hammond after all of thing that Hammond and Clarkson have done to him over the years, so may would probably would choose a Gogomobile for Hamond to drive. Then just what Hammond might be thinking he'd might choose for May to drive without him knowing what May has lined up for him, Hammond might decide on something decent and what he likes to drive, something llike a Ford Mustang II then maybe a 1969 Chevy Camaro SS 396 or a 1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IV to be funny and a bit of a over statement of his love of all things American. That's my thoughts on the subject at least.

  • Fun challenge but I love to see James and Hammond exchange their motorcycles for a day. Imagine Hammond on a Yamaha and May on a triumph.

  • well may would have to move the seats to accommodate a full sized human, while Hamster would have to move all of may's seats forward so he can sit in them at least.

  • What are all the cars that Hammond owns? I'll pick from the list.
