Re: Was Clarkson the Top Gear Nostradamus in 2009?

It's very moving although, I think he was a few years ahead, as Aston Martin and V12's were still being built 3 years later at least.
The writing is on the wall though...
I wonder what we'll actually be driving as our daily drivers in 20 years time...
