Jeremy Clarkson and James May will present their opinions on The Worst Car in the History of the World in a brand new, all exclusive Top Gear DVD.

Jeremy and James travel to the North of England to name and shame the most rubbish cars in the entire WORLD. It’s a labour-intensive affair, filled with heated debates, giant cranes, James being locked in his own car boot and…Jeremy being tied to a tree.

But don’t be fooled, it’s not all about terrible cars — to appreciate the stinkers you have to revel in some good ones too — like the 4.5 litre Ferrari 458 Spider, Toyota’s GT86 and the £340,000 Lexus LFA running shoulders with a Mercedes SLS AMG.

Facel Vega FV4 “Typhoon”

Facel Vega FV4

The marque Facel Vega was created in 1954 by Jean Daninos (brother of the humorist Pierre Daninos, who wrote Les Carnets du Major Thompson), although the Facel company had been established by the Bonzavia Company in 1939 as a subcontracting company for the aviations industry. FACEL (Forges et Ateliers de Construction d’Eure-et-Loir, in English: forge and construction workshop of the department of Eure-et-Loir) was initially a metal-stamping company but decided to expand into car manufacturing in the early 1950s. Facel entered the automobile business as a supplier of special bodies for Panhard, Delahaye and Simca.

Small numbers of other special bodied cars such as the Bentley pictured were also made, and Facel made the pillarless coupé bodywork for the Simca/Ford Comète. Around 45,000 Comètes were built, this lucrative contract enabling Facel to market a car of their own.
