  • Bag o' dicks!

  • Evs might be fast but they will never have any SOUL

  • Tavarish is epic

  • I thought that the only time you are allowed to 'undertake' is when you are in a filter lane.

  • Ferrari's a fezza

  • Get a mini and Alex will finally fit in it properly lol

  • A pet name I have used for any Citroen would be Shitroen after driving a bean can C1 a few years ago

  • I dont get Ethan's "what have you been up to?". I'm from the states so I'm not familiar with the motorways there but, if he's in the exit slip lane then why is he undertaking? Is he in the exit slip lane but not exiting?

  • Uterus for a Ute or pick up in Australia

  • Convert a classic mini to an EV

  • Just dont undertake

  • Poor boy only benches 120 junior year I was up to 150. Not flexing that's not every good I weighed 180 at the time

  • How about "fezza" for Ferrari? I've heard that a few times.

  • Don't do this without Gareth

  • Please get mat Watson on as a guest

  • Mid chase and running out of options to stop the car thieves, as a last ditch attempt bring the pursuit to an end, the pilot of the chopper turns to the person in the back "its time" he says "time for what" replies the passenger, "We have no other choice" with a stern expression on his face "drop the Bag 'o' Dogs" !!

  • Get Mike back on

  • The people bitch about electric cars are the same ones that say the same about automatics, like yeah I get it going through the gears is fun and a better feeling but electric cars have there place

  • This was a pretty stallin' podcast :x

  • Car Throttle taking Snakes on a Plane to the next level: Dogs on Choppers!

  • oh come on! if Ashens can eat 50 year old chocolate and survive, you can easily consume 27 y.o choc. amateurs.

  • "or like Cinderella" LMAO XD

  • Alex, you can not be a real car journalist with out driving a classic mini. Everyone knows it's a right of passage!!!

  • I was watching this podcast for long 43 minutes and I swear I did seen that Jack is only in socks literally half a second before Ethan mention it! WTF

  • Sorry but the dog in the studio is distracting all of you guys, ethan and Jack can't concentrate, dog has put his foot in Alex bottle and nearly tangled his head in the mic lead lol. I love dogs but he's distracting viewers too, please no call for him there.

  • People call french cars for baguettes because baguettes are associated with france. In the same way Japanese cars are rice.

  • Literally 4 weeks ago Alex was absolutely ribbing Gareth for getting an EV. Quick turn around in opinion!

  • I'm driving one of my shit boxes with broken power steering for several years. Several weeks I was driving car with broken powersteering that was trying to fight me. She should man up. :D

  • 3 is much better

  • Had a Mk1 Focus that looked like it spend half or its life in a lake or something. Literally every part not made of plastic/glass rusted like hell. Very reliable tho. Called it „Rusty“

  • You’d like the old mini if you love your 5. The mini was the first car I owned and the 5 is the closest fun I’ve had to it.

  • Always remember my dad owning an ex police car and other drivers treating it as such on the road including one who went from 70 to 90 around the top of the M25 then at the last second cutting from lane 3 down onto the M11 (moving after the 100 yard board)

  • Do a colab with high peak autos

  • Can we have more footage of Alex actually driving his Porsche derived v6 ........

  • Still waiting for boris’s car

  • Screw electric cars

  • Landrover Discovery is called the "Disco'

  • there is no law to say you can't drive in flip flops or barefoot. BUT you could be done for dangerous driving/due car and attention if you were to lose control of the car.

  • Please no more Gareth, ruins the podcast. Love the content otherwise, thank you Alex, Jack & Ethan.

  • Car throttle promoting car buying unseen and untested (buying online). How the times change. Sponsorship really does change people

  • Another perfect example of someone getting out of something because of COVID 😂 can’t eat it cos of COVID 😂

  • The amg move is called a mustang Starbucks exit

  • Personal experience, stolen car you don't want back! Some guys broke into my Skyline and stole the stereo one night and I had to sell it. I couldn't even drive that car anymore. I hated it and didn't even want to look at it. Sold it for next to nothing.

  • The main name in Sweden for cars is "Bettan" Its a short name for like Beth, Beatrice and so on.. :P Hmm.. U say that you dont like Minis but the Drivetrain is based on a BMW. haha.. So this means that you guys dont like BMW.. ^^ BTW Looove the show. even if you guys in UK still lives in the 50's by driving on the wrong side :P

  • My main gripe with people bitching about EVs is it ALWAYS comes back to noise. You can be like "this car is faster than yours, smoother, cheaper to run, better for the environment, carries more luggage, and is better in every way" And they're like " yeah, but it doesn't make any noise. I need engine noise" Really?

  • Can you really not overtake up the left lane or on an exit in London? If you don't do it in Australia you'll never get anywhere.

  • what grinds my gears is EV can't drive from Brisbane to Sydney now here's the thing you guys live in the UK everything is small and close together in Australia nothings close together and you wont be able to drive between major cities on one charge and you probably couldn't get to Perth or Darwin in an EV as public charge stations aren't even that common on the east coast of the Australia there wont be any in the middle of no where. On that note of a Porsche derived EV... yeah no you wont they're spending the next 7-8 years developing 3D printed pistons... yeah they will be out of business in 2030

  • That chocolate was made before I was

  • I had an ex Royal Mail van, it was called the royal nail 😂

  • Ethan it sounds like you weren't undertaking here, you were in the exit slip lane, therefore it is the other guys responsibility to check the lane he wants (yours) is clear before entering it. It's just that people don't expect to be passed that side, and so don't check that side properly

  • I miss gareth keep him coming also my name is gareth

  • Can you keep massie ( not too sure of that's the spelling) in the CT podcast in the future?

  • Freelands are known as hippos! As they look like them!

  • Better without Gareth, sorry, just how it is for me.

  • My brother named a Fiat Panda he bought for his ex-fat-fiasco “The Clit” because every cunt’s got one ☝️ Guess Panda’s were more popular in the 90’s😄

  • I have named everyone of my cars my current is a 200k mile mk4 Ford mondeo called Marilyn.... Marilyn mondeo

  • "Would you want the car back (undamaged)?....No" How does that make ANY sense. If you don't get your (stolen) car back (undamaged), you'll have to make a claim on your insurance and then get ready come renewal time for some serious financial butt hurt. I get that emotionally you'd know someone else had thrashed it but I'd take that over a total loss claim on my insurance history ANY day of the week!

  • Having a C63 as your first rear wheel drive is like adopting a bear as your first pet.

  • Your next video, Alex, should be, or at least include, a tribute to Sabine Schmitz.

  • A woman at work was driving in flip flops, the flip flop got jammed between the accelerator and the matt. She drove straight into the building writing off her car, destroying part of the building and causing damage to another team member's vehicle. Don't drive in stupid footwear!

  • Older small japanese hatchbacks (regardless of brand) are collectively called rice bowls.

  • Gareth is at home waiting for the buyer than isn't coming for the bmw

  • 51:01 there is actually a video of a cop dropping a dog from a heli to go and chase down someone in a field its mad

  • My '92 Cruiser was Farm Truck cause it came from a Farm and was old and farm-like. Mates: Hilux cause he had a shammy in he glovebox to clean it after every 18 rain drops. '88 Pajero was 'Ol Foss' cause it was a fossil. '96 Pajero was 'Clackerjabber' cause it made... noises. '03 105 series was 'White Knight' cause he got it while living away from the rest of us and he chose his own "cool" sounding name which is verboten but he got a sticker so it kinda stuck. '96 80 series was 'Shepherd' cause we made him go first to guide us through creek crossings.

  • 25:40 sniff them then ask to meet the women in question.

  • 4 mile trip in half an hour, lol. Petrol heads...Jesus wept.

  • You need to get a Mini on the channel

  • In India it is totally different, the better the car/bike, the more you have a chance to be stopped.

  • I'm happy for Maisy to continue to take Gareth's place. More Maisy chasing her tail please. Edit: this sounds mean, I dont want it to. Perhaps they can alternate?

  • Cant you just edit in the visual parts to the video

  • Phil, Collin.... I think I see a pattern...

  • There was a Freelander MK1 advertisment that had hippos on it

  • There is a great anti-littering campaign in Australia which just says “don’t be a tosser”

  • Mia the miata

  • Wheres BORIS 😆😆

  • Is Alex missing his booster seat in this video?

  • I called my old Mercedes Sprinter Ugly Bastard ,it was a band van. It was rusty,dirty and smelled like beer and b.o after every weekender or tour .

  • There is such a difference between watching these and listening to them, love the podcast as ever!


  • I have a question for the police. Is it illegal to own a Kia Venga at the age of 26. Asking for a friend.

  • 27:42 yeah if the UK needs one thing it is more cameras. Might be useful to just put their software on the already exisiting cams

  • I owned a Mitsubishi L200, which I named Dennis.... The name stuck so well and was adopted by everyone I knew..... I even told the new owner to keep his name and name badge (which he has) ...... I miss Dennis!! 😔 When I was on a VW Passat page, I found alot of people refering to their cheap estates 'Donkeys'.

  • That chocolate was supposed to be preserved by this channel for a further 26 years (or more) and here they are, destroying the mans life, who after 26 years of not opening it, Is watching this sad and regretting sending it in.

  • My daughter named my project car... "Star Racer"

  • Alex u drove a £140k Porsche and u liked it... 😂😂 u buy a £150 shit box and love it 😂😂😂😂

  • Volvo wagons are referred to as bricks if that counts

  • We need to see more of Maisie. A challenge to buy a suitable suitable for a dog.

  • Dicks call Zafiras a 'bus' and have "mad bus' facebook groups

  • who is Daniel?? (Oh dear Ethan....)

  • Godzilla

  • Should have got that chocolate out onto a tray

  • Ethan and Jack should get bikes if Alex gets a mini!

  • Get the boris review up!

  • Guys getting a seasoned traffic cop on the podcast as a guest would be an epic idea....!!!

  • We need more Maisy in the podcast

  • Private road my arse!!

  • Always do long distance in Socks......

  • I love this show - one of my weekly highlights 😊 But Alex - stop picking on the other guys and stomping your authority on them! It’s not an attractive personality trait, and you’re doing it more every week. Nuff said - keep up the great work 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  • Undertaking is perfectly legal, if there is slower moving traffic in the lanes to the right of you. Say for example, someone is HOGGING THE MIDDLE LANE! 🙈😂

  • Other french names like Patrice or Philippe for just any Renault, Citroen or Peugeots, the worst I've seen is people calling their fiesta's Freddie, I find it really cheesy.its on about any fiesta from st's to zetecs.
