The Stig takes a Vauxhall Monaro for a spin

In a well-made video from those boys at Top Gear, we see the Stig in all his glory, going sidewards. 

I love this video. The text at the start sets you up well, while the "weapon of choice" graphic is enough to unearth that childish, manly feeling you get when you see a video like this, as well as being pretty informative. And then its all gone sidewards, quite literally. Whoever the new Stig is he is just as impressive a driver as his predecessors, and can make this fairly average car do almost anything. And there are some great tunes to boot, particularly that engine note!
