Being The Stig on Top Gear has its privileges but the best perk that comes along with the job is driving every single vehicle that hits the Top Gear track. Writing over at, former Stig Ben Collins listed the five worst cars he’s ever driven:

  • Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione: “…the worst supercar I ever drove, which was also one of the most beautiful.”
  • Fiat Multipla: “It took 12 seconds to reach 100km/h, whereupon it didn’t handle too badly but you looked daft behind the wheel.”
  • Cadillac Escalade: “When we did point it at the most modest of trenches, the axle shook like blancmange before the Caddy bottomed out and got stuck.”
  • Dodge Charger: “The new Charger appeared in 2005 and underwhelmed with its heavy weight, modest power and woeful automatic gearbox. When it comes to classic remakes, the only manufacturer that seemed to get it right was Chevrolet with the Camaro SS.”
  • TVR Sagaris: “It had no door handles. To open the door you pressed a button under the wing mirror and prayed the electrics worked, because on many TVRs they don’t. The seating was invented by Houdini and changing gear required you to dislocate a shoulder.”
