Nationality Flag of the United Kingdom.svg British Weight Max. 1,200 kg Tyres Unrestricted (GT5aspecicon.png) / Comfort: Soft (GT5bspecicon.png)

Recommended Car[edit]

The Lotus Espirit V8 GT '98 with a bit of tuning. Note that you will need to perform weight reduciton to get it under 1,200 kg.

The Lotus Espirit V8 '02 in the dealership works well if you cant find the GT '98

Alternatively, the Jaguar XJ13 Race Car '66 that you get for winning the Indy 500 in A-Spec qualifies for this race easily at 998kg, though it may require some tuning as it is powerful and prone to oversteer.

You may also look for a Mclaren MP4-12C in the Mclaren dealership which will see through a-spec easily. Note that you will need to purchase two weight reduction upgrades to reduce this car's weight to under 1,200kg.


The event consists of two individual races:

Track London Street Circuit Top Gear Test Track
A-Spec laps 3 3
B-Spec laps 6 6
