Good God! Such amazing precision and control. I'm absolutely in disbelief of what he did with the M5 in such a right space. I need to start practicing! Lol!

Fancy editing. I wonder how many takes this took? Just watch the windshield wipers. On from outside, off inside.

Still awesome though. But even though I could probably pull these stunts off, all my driving and racing training has taught me that there are certain things I just shouldn't do in MY car. Save the wear and tear for somebody else.

Top Gear is heavily edited and really not much in this show is to be taken seriously. Just good entertainment.

Amazing! Can't believe those moves. Regardless if it was edited for mistakes he made, it's still mind-boggling how accurately he moved that big car. Wow

wait how did the stig do that on a dct? ive been wondering myself.. ok he was in reverse and flicked and stomped on the brake. then when he was facing forward he drove off somehow without being completely stopped.

as you know we cant just go from moving in neutral to a gear, that step on brake yellow light appears.

or am i doing something wrong..

Te video was removed so I haven't seen it. I can only assume while the car was still moving, the brakes and therefore the wheels were locked up, so the electronics "thought" the car wasn't moving.
