Gee, I'd rather do a tribute to Citroën than Peugeot.  It's all really been Citroën and Renault that have been on the forefronts of French car makers.  Peugeot just sticks to what works.

 

I guess I am a bit biased, though, since I own two Citroëns.

Peugeot have made some truly outstanding cars. Just not for a really, really long time.

They did indeed.  Just weren't pushing the envelope as much as Citroën.  I have driven an old Peugeot, and it was excellent.

Busy watching the new episode. Really enjoyed it, one of my best eps! I f*ckin loved the part where they played Kavinsky's - Roadgame :D

Edit: BTW, Ferrari and Mclaren are full of sh*t for not letting them test the friggin cars!

Is it featured on episode 5? Coz I'm probably half way through. They just introduced the star in their reasonably priced car.

At the beginning of the BMW M3 and i8 review.

Double Edit: That was a seriously funny episode yesterday damn! Especially that Peugoet tribute! :lol:

Nothing wrong with Porsche, they are more than willing to have them test the car.  It's only McLaren and Ferrari that have problems.  Also the only two that sent bodyguards.

Yeah sorry, I re-watched it and heard that I was wrong.

Okay so for me, episode 4 is one of those times where you never actually see the full episode but you see it in chronologically incorrect segments and eventually piece everything together. Well, the episode is great, but the info on my cable does say that they review the M4 instead of the M3.

Will Smith and Margot Robbie were great. Will is so great at being comedic on the spot, which is why he's one of my favorite actors and I was looking forward to seeing him.

Damn, that Peugeot segment is just too funny with Jeremy saying "MANIAC" everytime a car passes. The LaFerrari segment is just beautifully shot and is proof that James can actually drive. It just sucks that both Ferrari and McLaren won't lend both of their cars due to a disagreement between the two. The C7 vs Cayman was a great review, it was so hard for Richard to choose between the two of them. Probably the best in this series so far. 9/10

I'm gonna guess their doing the Laferrari, the Cayman, the 308, and the C7?
They're doing a "tribute" to Peugeot.
 

 

I can't see why, then again Peugeot's don't come to my country.

 

Peugeot used to make great cars such as the 505 GTi and the 205 T16 in which is made for Group B Homologation and eventually won 2 back-to-back World Rally Titles in the hands of Timo Salonen and Juha Kankkunen. And yes, they now make terrible and ugly cars. Even here in the Philippines, Peugeot is not looked that much if you compare to other European brands like VW and BMW.

the VW bug was the most iconic car in my eyes and I loved seeing it in the Cars of the People. I knows that's irrelevant but still

There is no other French car as iconic as a Citroen 2CV.  :)
