From the mouth of Clarkson

Post by Kinoulton » Thu Sep 20, 2007 8:59 am

"I'm sorry, but having a DB9 on the drive and not driving it is a bit like having Keira Knightley in your bed and sleeping on the couch. If you've got even half a scrotum it's not going to happen."

"We start tonight with the highlight of my childhood. It's the Ladybird Book of Motorcars from 1963, and as you would imagine it's full of rubbish really. Just endless boring grey shapes, until you get to page 40, where you find the Maserati 3500 GT. Now this for me, when I was little, was like kind of Jordan and Cameron Diaz. In a bath together. With a Lightning jet fighter. And lots of jelly."

"[about Porsche Cayman S] There are many things I'd rather be doing than driving it, including waiting for Bernard Manning to come off stage in a sweaty nightclub, and then licking his back clean"

..."the last time someone was as wrong as you, was when a politician stepped off an aeroplane in 1939 waving a piece of paper in the air saying there will be no war with Germany "

" America : 250 million w****rs living in a country with no word for w****r"

On the Alfa Romeo Brera... "I only have to imagine this in black, with tan leather and I'm nursing a semi!"

Illustrating the lack of power of a Boxster - 'It couldn't pull a greased stick out of a pig's bottom'

On the Vauxhall Vectra VXR:
"there is a word to describe this car: it begins with "s" and ends with "t" and its not "soot". Hammond : "So its fairly terrible then?" Clarkson: "Oh no...losing your leg is fairly terrible: this is another league of badness!"

"some say, that he used to throw microwave ovens at homeless people - and that he long before anyone else realised that jade goody is a racist, pig-faced waste of blood and organs............all we know, is that he's called the Stig!"

"the Suzuki Wagon R should be avoided like unprotected sex with an Ethiopian transvestite"

"Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you."

'The air conditioning in Lambos used to be like an asthmatic sitting in the dashboard blowing at you through a straw'

"Koenigsegg are saying that the CCX is more comfortable. More comfortable than what... BEING STABBED?"

"The only person to ever look good in the back of a 4-seater convertable was Adolf Hitler"

(Fed up during the caravaning trip)
"You aren't allowed to have a party, you aren't allowed to have music, you aren't allowed to play ball games, you aren't allowed to have a camp fire, you have to park within two feet of a post, you have to keep quiet, you have to be in bed by eleven. This is not a holiday, it's a concentration camp!"

"This is the Renault Espace, probably the best of the people carriers. Not that that's much to shout about. That's like saying "Ooh good I've got syphilis, the BEST of the sexually transmitted diseases.""

(mercedes CLs55) "Braking in this car is so brutal, it would be less painful to actually hit the tree you were trying to miss."

"I don't understand bus lanes. Why do poor people have to get to places quicker than I do?"

Clarksons highway code on cyclists: 'trespassers in the motorcars domain, they do not pay road tax and therefore have no right to be on the road, some of them even believe they are going fast enough to not be an obstruction. Run them down to prove them wrong'

"I was reading The Mirror the other day and came across a letter from a reader who wrote, 'I was riding my bike to work when this red Ferrari pulled up next to me. Out of the window, Jeremy Clarkson shouted 'Get a car', and drove off.' What I actually said was, 'Get a car you hatchet-faced, leaf-eating N**i"

" Britain 's nuclear submarines have been deemed unsafe...probably because they don't have wheel-chair access"

1) "If we are being honest HIV is a pathetic virus, it can only live in the air for 6 seconds and it does what ebola does to you in 10 days in 10 years"
2) "Mandela just doesn't deserve his pedestal, I'm mean the blokes a bit dodgy"
3) On Mandela's claim that Cuba is a good advert for democracy!!! "Well Mr Mandela why don't you go and ask one of the 12 year old cuban prostitutes which way her parents voted"

"Now we get quite a lot of complaints that we don't feature enough affordable cars on the show......so we'll kick off tonight with the cheapest Ferrari of them all!"

On the Lotus Elise: "This car is more fun than the entire french air force crashing into a firework factory"

"Now as you can see I lost the battle to have two engines on the back because of three very important reasons. One: weight. This is 600 Lbs and that's the same as having a whole American sitting on the tailgate..."


In the olden days I always got the impression that TVR built a car, put it on sale, and then found out how it handled. Usually when one of their customers wrote to the factory complaining about how dead he was.

"the DB9 has rear seats but no mammal yet created, not even when God was on the LSD trip that gave us the pink flamingo, could fit into them."

Assessing Hammond 's crash:
Clarkson: "you can see from the tape that the tyre is starting to come apart. Now why didnt you spot that?!" Hammond : "I had a lot on: I was doing 288 mph."
Clarkson: "What do you mean you had a lot on? I can be in the office on the phone, doing the paperwork, kids are shouting at me, wife etc: if a lion walks in, I'm going to notice it!"

"there are footballers wives that would be happy with this quality of stitching... on their face"

"Much more of a hoot to drive than you might imagine. Think of it, if you like, as a librarian with a G-string under the tweed. I do, and it helps."

Tonight, the new Viper, which is the American equivalent of a sports car... in the same way, I guess, that George Bush is the equivalent of a President.

Jeremy said this of the Porsche Cayenne. "Honestly, I have seen more attractive gangrenous wounds than this. It has the sex appeal of a camel with gingivitis."

I presume that's Jeremy the Toffee Apple you're describing there BBM, rather than our beloved Redster?

To be fair, if I thought he actually meant some of the more outrageous things he's said, then I would consider him to be a complete b........

I assume he is just a charicature of himself, constantly and deliberately lampooning "accepted opinion".

I can exand if you wish. the bottom line is its a guy who is publicchoboy totally pro establishmnt pretnding to be a maverik rebel, because he gets to drive fast cars which we can't afford. his humour is totally mainstram and his targets are sitting adth jokeis never at his own expense. he has his moments (Given his airtime he must have some eventually) but basically it has all ben said and done better by 101 other people. as for fast cars, I like nice cars and apprecite fine wormanship. But these wanabe playboys just encourage boy racers to speed and buy cars they cant afford

worst of all behind the jeans and big hair and irreverent manner, he takes himself seriously there is no self deprecation, jeremy (Or is it Jezza to mates?) rates himself with his poodle hair, in his dangerous shirts and baggy jeans and combo boots saying I dont give a damn. (all carefuly hand picked by wardrobe with blusher and perm).

You like straight talkers and maveriks Follow real mavericks, try bill hicks or a richard pryor.

I dont dislike the man, I just dont rate him,there are endlessly funnier and more honest men and zillions who sell cars better

Clarkson is an arrogant prat

BBM, you were losing me there until you mentioned the jeans, and then I caught your drift absolutely. Clarkson should not wear those jeans. They make him, as Victor Lewis-Smith keeps pointing out, like a toffee apple with a blue stick. Which is to say, a complete plonker who unnaccountably fancies himself something rotten.
