Jeremy Clarkson from TopGear TV believes that almost anything can be solved with more power and/or speed.
World peace for example could be achieved with more power, somehow, toasters would be better if they, um, toasted things faster, and literally every single aspect of The Car could be improved or fixed with a generous dose of horsepower and speed. Unless of course the car in question is really broken, then you mend it with liberal application of hammer and swear words, obviously.
These ten GIFs prove that Clarkson’s ‘more power and speed’ philosophy doesn’t always solve everything…. Especially if you haven’t got the slightest idea of how to operate a car.
1. We’re coming in too hot!
2. Easy does it… Oh wait.
3. Opens door. Car accelerates – dodge German wiring!
4. Well parked… Sort of.
6. Driving test FAIL.
7. Hot hatchbacks can still work on three wheels. Big old four-by-fours? Not so much.
8. Too much *imaginary speed…
*Some actual speed may also be involved here.
9. Drift fail.
10. Go too fast and your steering wheel might fall off…
