Lights. Camera. Action. This month TopGearSA travels back in time to relive the movie moments that etched specific cars and brands in our mind, whether it was an Audi S8 driven by a hitman, a Hummer in the terminator, a Shelby GT500 racing against the clock, or this month’s double-barrel Mustang from Bullitt. For many, movies became the most tangible way to nurture a passion towards cars, setting our aspirations and imaginations alight to one day owning a car with a link back to movie provenance. Because here the cars were the stars, not the actors. We sat together with the difficult challenge of narrowing our list to 25 indelible movie cars, plus some of their secrets in the smoke and mirrors art of Hollywood. This includes a look at specially designed stunt cars and a closer understanding into the world of stunt driving. Our regular road tests include the Volkswagen Touareg, BMW M2- and M5 Competition, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera and we nab an exclusive interview with Stefano Domenicali during the launch of the Lamborghini Urus in Cape Town. In a motoring homage to Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, TopGearSA manages to drive the first BMW X3 produced at Rosslyn, culminating in a epic roadtrip that takes in all the symbolic moments leading to the country’s progression towards democracy. It’s a journey you might want to re-create one day, taking in some great roads and historical sights. So put your feet up, reach for the popcorn and enjoy this edition of TopGearSA. As always, we thank you for reading and engaging with us on social media.
