    That cupra r was on grand tour within 2 weeks of buying my cupra. Would never have said it could keep an e92 m3 at bay, driver could wheel. M3 looked like it was just showboating till the end. Very impressive

    Haha, yeah I was hoping he would take it, but it was the V8 M3 wasn't it? I was surprised to see a Leon, was not expecting that at all and was great to see.

    Totally, it's all probably rehearsed. Did anyone see when James May drove the Kia Singer? Wasn't a review at all, just him driving it up a hill against two skateboarders. Looks like they've gone from a factual and informative show to purely entertainment.

    I thought the LCR did well,looked pretty standard though.
    The driver handled himself very well,made the beemer look stupid,never under estimate the cupra or the R
    ;-)
