Jeremy Clarkson Fesses To Doing 186 mph on London Road

Posted by Fara Kearnes on May 29, 2008 2:26 PM |

clarksonThe fearless hero and star of Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson admits he drove a car on a public road in London at 186 mph. The fact that he found a bit of open road in London to put the pedal to the metal is miraculous enough, but tell us, what was the CAR?

Was the it a Koenigsegg CCX? A Maserati Bora? A Jaguar XJ220? A Ferrari Enzo??

And the answer is ...He did it in the world's 2nd fastest legal car for the public roads, yes yes yes - the $1.4 million Bugatti Veyron - which has a top speed of 253 mph.

But Jeremy didn't get in trouble until he talked about it. During the interview by Daily Mail columnist Rosie Boycott, the 48-year-old was asked what was the fastest he had ever driven. Clarkson replied: "On the public roads. . . 186."

And hilarity ensued...

That admission was too much for the old totties at the nanny state's BBC who got their knickers in a twist and are now hissing that Clarkson should be sacked and his highly entertaining car show cancelled after 11 seasons.

In his own defense, Clarkson says: 'I haven't been pulled over for speed for 20 years and I have never been pulled over for speed while working on Top Gear. I don't drive very fast."

'I don't have any influence over what people do, I really don't," he adds. "It makes no difference what I say. Top Gear is just fluff. It's just entertainment - people don't listen to me."
