He called LFA "spectacularly brilliant" and "superb" car.

He also picked LFA recently as his most favorite car he would want to drive home.

His view on the LFA changed dramatically in his recent review of the car. They were filming an episode right?

That is until he actually drove it. He had been steadfast in refusing to drive it until recently.

Yes, they are shooting a Christmas special.
