Top Gear: Series 6, Episode 5

On friendly-fire Top Gear, we got the British Army in to shoot at Jeremy, James earned his keep reviewing the Nissan Murano, and Richard drove a sporty Maserati.

We revealed that the Nissan Murano has fantastic satellite navigation which actually takes you where you want to go, rather tha a golf course. It even has a reverse camera that shows you if you're about to back over a fox.

The Jaguar E-Type and Aston Martin DB5 are two of the most evocative sports cars of all time, but which is best? The sheer impact of the Jag's flowing lines may have been slightly dulled by familiarity, but it's still a stunning car. Let's face it though, Bond drives the Aston, and that's good enough for us.

Global speculation about the identity of the Stig often leads people to believe he's Damon Hill. But could it be true? Does Damon sleep upside down like a bat? Is he afraid of bells? One thing for sure is he managed a superb lap time. But is he the Stig? Who can say for sure...

For Clarkson's test of the new Porsche Boxster S and Mercedes SLK 55 AMG, we decided to spice things up a bit. Jeremy was told to drive at speed around a military training base, while an Army sniper regiment was given the enviable task of shooting at him with big guns. At the last minute we were told we couldn't use real bullets, but still, you can dream. Instead, we used a special laser targeting system to record all the hits.

The Porsche was first out, and Jeremy was shot only six times. On the Mercedes run he was shot 13 times, which, had they been real bullets, would've made enough holes to sieve pasta. Despite that, he loved the Merc.
