Top Gear hit by financial crisis

By on

The global financial crisis has hit the makers of the popular car show 'Top Gear'. Instead of the usual Porshes, Ferrari's and other expensive dream cars, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will have to use cheaper and more ecological cars.

Producer Andy Wilman even has the idea to make a season of 'Boring Top Gear' in which the trio gives the viewers good advice instead of blowing up caravans and rebuilding cars.

However, the BBC reassures the fans that their dream cars won't completely disappear from the screen, but as the programme needs to save money, the show will be filled with more economic cars.

Top Gear won't only save money on the cars but on the wages of Clarkson, Hammond and May as well.
