  • What are those 2 red buttons on top of the horn on the wheel?

  • He lost on purpose so he could take his top off 🤣🤣🤣

  • I won't saying that Public Transport is better, because you see how much effort they put to get on a train, running down the street. But yeah, this is really entertaining.

  • Copied top gear

  • Public Transport is faster than a Car? *laughs in german autobahn*

  • Standard Class?

  • They actually said the most northern part of england not Scotland so wouldn't he have won not lost

  • Feel for you Ethan and jack, hard enough climbing stairs full stop with mask on let alone running think that would have killed me lol

  • What if it was done at night? Clearly personal transports wins by a mile.

    • doubt it would win at night because the roads would be clear, the car would just sail through.

  • You got beat by two dorks on scooters 😂

  • The ugliest car ever conceived... and we live in a timeline where the Mitsuoka Orochi exist in...

  • Granted, public transport in the uk is great. But public transport for most of the U.S is kinda shit. The best public transport I’ve used when in the us was in Washington DC.

  • 19:05 they must be pretty close to be within unlicensed radio Comms :')

  • 21:33 - finally we have seen a legit sirious face of Alex🤣🤣

  • I'd rather take the train that drive such an ugly car

  • Mrs Cathie wood trading services are legit her method works like magic I keep on earning every single week with her new strategy

    • when you invest you're buying a day you don't have to work

    • I have been able to gather enough funds to buy Bitcoin i can't wait to finally kick off

    • All nice recommendations

    • Tell her I referred you please

    • + 1 7 0 7 6 5 9 6 4 9 2

  • Omaze is unavailable in my region which is the Caribbean

  • this looks like top gear

  • Top gear remember Jeremy Clarkson in a Nissan gtr in China VS Jeremy and Hammond going on public transport exactly like this but in the uk

  • Love watch your show guys. It has given me a kick up the backside to start my channel. Keep up the good work guys 👍

  • Sheffield does steel. Don't know about anywhere else in the north still doing steel. I assume it's a dying trade.

  • Liner trains are most of the time delayed and late to arrive at stations. I speak from experience. Train travel in Britain is the worst your best just getting a form of private transportation.

  • 3:08 @Car Throttle please, please, please do a video on London rules! It will help those us who move there massively.

  • Should not have stopped for gas

  • The entire car is ruined by that enormous grill

  • God u boys should try and get the old top gear boys on

  • Tbh it's not rly fair at the end bcs Alex had to run whereas ethan and Jack had scooters, if only he could drive the m4 down there ahahha

  • That sheffield accent got me rollin. :D you southern bastard LOL

  • I really wish I could watch this video but for me as a BMW fanboy from the 80s on the front grill of this cars is so ugly I cant stand this. Actually if I see one of the new BMW from the front I want to burn my eyes. In 10 Years these generation of BMW cars is more hated than the BMW E65 and this was an ugly car from a company that had build really nice cars that aged well at the past. Look at the E38. Seems like they want their last petrol cars to be ugly so their future electric cars can be pretty again. I mean the I8 looked good.

  • Nothing worse than racing to catch a train.

  • Shoulda stopped off in Sheff for a cuppa! Ye southern bastard😂

  • People may knock our public transport but it's not half as bad as our roads! Speed cameras galore and slow drivers everywhere

  • North of Newcastle the motorway just sort of stops, and doesn't return untill Edinburgh.

  • Next time it should be Geoff Marshall in public transit vs Ethan in a car.

    • Or Alex in public transit and Geoff in a performance car.

  • Top Gear hasn’t got nothing on you Surrey boys! Keep making them, we’ll keep watching them. 👍🏻

  • Alex loves a bit of middle lane hogging doesn't he? And I assume this M4 wasn't fitted with the "optional" indicator pack either! #DriveItLikeABeemer

  • I sooooooo wanted Ethan to lose this time!! That M4 is sublime. Apart from the ugly grilles.

  • Since the grand tours stopped being a weekly thing I’ve always thought that these guys are the new Clarkson Hammond and May

  • Ahh leaving the general public to take care of themselves on public transport. Don't need staff when people can look after themselves and understand how it works with phones, machines etc.

  • Eww that BMW LOOKS NASTY😒

  • It would have been so funny if three minutes from go you got arrested on the scooters.

  • Next time take a fuel can Alex, every second counts

  • 11:55 when you switch to filming on the £50 alcatel

  • Excellent! Please more of these videos! Reminds me of Top Gear.....

  • he was in a bmw and used the blinkers my face was😯😯

  • Future Top Gear Presenters

  • 😂😂😂😂😂

  • Top Gear eat your heart out!!!!! Only need to decide who’s May and Hammond!!!

  • This is like the older top gear! So entertaining!

  • Comes across gt3rs and didn’t even mention the yellow Camaro right next to it

  • Good thing Jack and Ethan WILL run on camera…

  • That 500bhp came really handy in the 60 zones with traffic

  • That's a seriously ugly car.

  • Alex was cheated = those electric Scooters are only legal on private land - not pavements or paths in the UK. Jack & Ethan get those swimming trunks on!

  • IM FROM DONNY 😂😂😂😂

  • “Race”...

  • Chicken McNuggets is McDonalds not KFC 🙈🤣

  • top gear vibes

  • Alex needs to be carefull with google maps. Recent updates makes it show the greenest route not the fastest

  • The Grand Tour 2.0

  • Technically jack and Ethan lost because the scooter is private transport.

  • Bloody love you guys always telling my friends in Australia about you😁

  • Alex went full BMW driver in some moments

  • £77K 😅 in the UK? The exact same spec car costs €166K (£144K) in the Netherlands. Please do not complain.

  • Great video lads,Top Gear lite.

  • Damn that car is ugly.

  • top gear on a budget

  • Would love to see Jeremy, James and Richard join you in a race across the UK.

  • While I love these races, and the fact it’s taking over the old top gear races, I never understand taking an M4 on a trip where they have to drive economically to make it on one tank of fuel, any fast diesel would do the trip much much quicker!!

  • you got 503 horses in a car with a face ugly enough that not even a mother could love it. crush all the tall grille bimmers and put the designers in them.

  • f*ck me, i cave in, i love the new M4. 🤦🏻‍♂️

  • Nice Octavia coup

  • Better than the rubbish new top gear

  • Should’ve had a swim mate, get some heat into those muscles after that long drive

  • these lads should be hosting Top Gear, theres real gel between them

  • How about another challenge for the future, St ives near plymouth to Burghead (Elgin) in scotland? Alex motorcycle Ethan Drives and Jack takes public transport 13 hour trip via car 16 & half hours via transport Rest breaks are required

  • wot about fuel costs vs cost of train tickets?

  • 08:42 “In a modern M-car that can be a f**king sport plus mode”

  • Do this in germany. 300kph ICE train vs some super sedan on the Autobahn

  • Wish we had great public transit in the US!

  • Great video guys, but what we learnt is...if Alex was in a 420d the car would have won 😜

  • This channel might be the saviour to all people who miss the good top gear

  • when you were talking about the fuel and range and all that, you sounded like an F1 strategist. ever considered a job at ferrari?

  • God that car looks horrendous


  • the moment this goes across countries in europe just like those old TG episodes, alex and the car stands a chance to win.

  • GIVE OVER!!!! The car clearly wins!!! I don't think scooters count as "Public Transport" they are 100% personal............ bloody cheats LOL!!

  • I mean, I'd buy their merch but I don't want to look like I'm rocking Halfords merch

  • What's with the tiny towel?

  • fun fact, 6 points and £200 for using those escooters. Be careful.

  • Not enough mid roll ads 😑

  • Two men on scooters race a pig from angry birds...

  • Since these are staged anyways, why not make the car win?

  • Why is that BMW front end growing on me.....

  • That double bluff was solid. This is a high level strategy game. 🤣

  • Love these type of vids

  • loved this video boys, but to be honest i don’t think it mattered whether he did it in a M4, a Toyota Aygo, or a Bugatti Chiron, when sticking to the speed limit the result would always have been the same give or take a couple of minutes.

  • Move left when not overtaking

  • Just do a video with the blue škoda vs public transport since you have to obey the traffic laws anyways.

  • The bmw grills are so ugly don't know what they were thinking
