“Hammond: Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.”

“Clarkson: I suppose I should go and speak to Hammond, but… oh, he hasn’t got any legs.”

“May: Big engine, small car… It’s a winning formula, always has been.”

“Hammond: I’m not going to say I’m indestructible, but nothing seems to kill me.”
