A Top Gear Christmas is a petrolhead's dream festive read

Packed full of the usual mix of hilarity, idiocy and stunts, A Top Gear Christmas is one book you won't want to put down in the holidays when the Queen's Speech mercilessly drones on in the background.

From the first page it is a colourful, creative read and it's hard not to laugh at the bevvy of content from ridiculous letters to cheesy ads.

Highlights definitely include 'The Interceptors' comic strip, featuring Jeremy Clarkson as a Tom Selleck lookalike and 'Rudolf The Red Nosed Roller', which are hilarious and feature the usual hijinx from the troublesome trio.

The book also features lists of cars to look forward to next year, cars to make the right impression and the car obituaries, featuring the BMW M5 and Lamborghini Murcielago.

With 124 pages, there's plenty to keep you entertained for the long run, and there's even some christmas cooking advice from Nigella Hammond. Although we wouldn't recommend trying out on the family.

Originally £12.99, it's now half price on Amazon and would make a perfect last-minute stocking filler for anyone who is difficult to buy for.
