Top Gear (BBC, UK), The Smallest Car in the World


The Video

Jeremy Clarkson drives the Peel P50, the world’s smallest production car to work at the BBC, discovering some of the advantages and drawbacks of such a tiny vehicle.

Top Gear was the most widely watched factual television programme in the world and this clip has enough laughs to make it enjoyable for any general audience.

Level and Language Focus

The video is perfect for intermediate and upper intermediate levels with fairly simple language and clear narration.
