The Model T, the 2CV, The Fiat Cinquecento – history says these are the iconic Peoples' Cars, but James May begs to differ, and in this three part series, he tells the story of the cars he believes are the true Cars of the People.
Each episode covers a particular theme; these being cars from dictatorships, microcars and the dream cars we aspire to. Throughout each episode, James tests out a variety of cars, often giving them a mini road test while also talking about the car itself. James also travels around the world to their country of origin, where he also performs some challenges and tests on the car.
As always, his choices will surprise and provoke car lovers everywhere.
Top Gear Special: James May's Car of the People premieres on Sunday (14 December) at 9:55pm (SIN/HK) on BBC Knowledge.
