Fun fact - this car was designed by Latvian ­čśé I vaguely remembered something about it but wasn't sure so I checked Wikipedia and sure enough: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatole_Lapine

Porsche 944 as well.

The idiots tested a clapped out 4.5 litre running on 6 cylinders that they bought for about £1000. I wish they'd put a decent 928 'round the track.

This was a first for Porsche, prior to the 928, Porsche had never produced a front mounted V8 powered car. I love it.

Eh, what? Since when was this 928 and 944 tested round the Top Gear track? Curiously. I'd wish to see a faster laptime though, but what do I want a '77 car?

BTW, lovely car. A predecessor of Panamera.
