In Clarkson Hot Metal, Jeremy Clarkson tells us how everything is slowing down. The Concorde is in a museum, and even warships are slower then those 50+ years ago. But is it the same for todays cars, and why?

Are the new breed or cars faster then those of the 1980s? Are they quicker in a straight line? Do they corner faster? Which are better looking and which can make the best noises even? That means the 200 mile per hour Jaguar XJ220 taking on a Pagani Zonda, a Mclaren Mercedes SLR against a Porsche Carrera GT, and the Fort GT with the car that spawned it, the Ford GT40. The Aston Martin DB9 is here, taking on the V8 Vantages. And the Evo 8? How much faster is it than the Evo 1?

And for a bit of fun Jeremy had to riddle a Nissan with machine gun fire, as he takes up the new and dangerous sport of Clay Car shooting :)

Clarkson Hot Metal is good, but not as good as later Clarkson offerings, and the picture quality was a bit chunky in places too! Its still worth watching though!

No trailer or clip from this DVD, but here is Jeremy on Top Gear...
