The Top Ten

1 Vietnam Special (12,8)

Even though it isn't cars, it's still a great journey with those guys.

Everything about this episode is brilliant. The cinematography, the chemistry between the presenters, the journey through the beautiful country of Vietnam. It's all fantastic. Top Gear at its peak.

Best Episode of Top Gear even when there are no Cars. I just love how Clarkson goes to the BMW showroom in hopes to buy a 250 and James' rescue of Darcy. Totally worth watching

It's the funniest of the lot because of the irony that Jeremy doesn't like motorbikes and the other two do!

2 Bolivia Special (14,6)

This is the best episode yet of top gear! Classic top gear special!

Funniest episode of them all!

Really great episode. Range Rover you beauty!

It is the best Special by far. I just wish they included the Bolivian Salt Flats on this one; maybe they can do Part 2.

3 Hammerhead-i-Eaglethrust/Geoff (14,2)

That it takes the boys all day driving around at 10 mph and everything going wrong on their car for Jeremy to finally realize and say "It's rubbish.." is amazing.

It is great to see those guys build their own car and make a mess.

This was absolutely hilarious.

The crash tests have me in tears

4 Middle East Special

This episode is one of the best ever. Watching Hammond get diarrhea and getting trolled by May and Clarkson the next day killed me - Danielsun182

Really enjoyed that episode - one of the best

5 Polar Special (9,7)

Became the first to drive to the North Pole - alleksas50

I mean, it's literally the North Pole. Do I need any more explanation?

6 US Special (9,3)

I'm American and even though Jeremy doesn't like us I love top hear. The funny thing is most of what he says about us is true

A cow on the Camaro - alleksas50

Hamsters pick for a car was an amazing choice. Challenger

7 Motorhomes (15,4)

This is great and hilariousness. It should be number one. It shows the ingeniousness of the BBC and Top Gear UK. LONG LIVE THIS SHOW INNIT!

Genius pure genius. Gotta love clarksons flat rest in peace always in our harts

Did not stop laughing!

Jeremy provides the best road entertainment of all time - a block of flats on top of a Citro├źn. - IronSabbathPriest

8 Communist Cars (12,6)

The episode is the best! All of the segments are brilliant (I like communist cars best) and deserve to be the best Top Gear episode ever. - Gordon003

The MM Owners Club fallout was hillarious!

9 Bulldog vs British Army (13,4)
10 Africa Special (19, 6 & 7)

Great Episode, This episode was truly amazing, I loved each and every second of it, it described what Top Gear truly is, it's a comedic non-scripted show about cars, and the Africa Special made it just that, Thank you Top Gear, Everyone in it, I have watched it ever since 2002 and this is my number 1 favorite episode.

Just started watching Top Gear and this was the first episode I've ever seen and if every episode is as funny, adventurous, brilliant, scary and entertaining as this one, I am in heavan. Truly a treat to watch. Will watch this episode again.

Best one, hands down!

The Contenders

11 British Leyland Challenge (10,7)
12 Amphibious Cars (8,3)

This episode just shows how much they can get away with in one episode.

13 Italian Mid-engined Supercars for Less Than a Second-hand Mondeo (7, 4)
14 Single Tank Race to Blackpool (12,4)

Always loved this one. In my top 5 definitely. To me it was unique.

15 Peel P50 Microcar (10,3)

Amazing to watch and so funny

17 Rallycross With Less Investment Than Golfing (18, 7)
18 Top Gear Police Department/ 80's hatchback vs modern (21, 1)

By far one of the best! The supermarket race had me in stitches!

The police department was BRILLIANT

When they wrap there cars, Ha.

IN the PLUMS!

19 Top Gear Ashes (16,2)
20 Ambulance (22, 3)

Has to be the funniest 1 hour viewable. Better than the whole of series 23 combined and a good ending series for the trio

The funniest this show has ever been. - IronSabbathPriest

Had nothing to do with cars buth so funny

I had tears running down my face from.laughter when he pressed the button to.get him into Casualty and the dummy got wedged in the window frame!

21 Hovercraft Test (20, 4)

One of the best episodes for me. The boys turn a van into a hovercraft before totally ruining it.

22 Military Vehicle Demolition (17,5)
23 Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Challenge (21, 3)

Hilarious all throughout and some historical education to go with it

24 Police Car Challenge (11,1)
25 Tremendous Tractors (19,1)
26 The Caravanning Holiday (8, 6)

By far the best, especially when May hits the pole.

27 Botswana Special

One word: Oliver!

28 VW Scirocco Diesel Ads (13,7)

Best bit in that episode is at the end of that were Jeremy put 1 tank is enough to Poland joke

This one is great, though not for the Scirocco ads (as hilarious as that may have been), so much as for the gorgeous V12 Vantage film at the end. So calm, so different, so beautiful, I love it. The rest of the episode is good, not outstanding.

What it's a funereal, make it a black bikini

29 Brilliant British Engineering (20,6)

My favorite episode of the series. It wasn't the funniest of the series but if you are British then it is the most emotional episode of the series. It shows how many vehicles we do make and is extremely touching. The best finale of any series I have ever seen.

30 Romania Special (14,1)
31 "Low Budget" BMW X6 Test (14,7)
32 Stig Tries to Beat a Speed Camera (1,1)

Nothing to say just brilliant.

33 Homemade Limousines (9,6)

Nothing funnier than seeing Jeremy clarkson get hit by a water canon & then his limo split in half in the middle of London.

34 Peugeot Special (22,5)
35 Burma Special (March 2014)

Best special out there! best part when Clarkson peed in Hammonds water source before he used it to shower!

36 Marauder Test (17,1)
37 Train Challenge (17,4)

17,4 just hilarious throughout the whole thing a must watch

"Scum class" - IronSabbathPriest
