360 View Of Top Gear Track Shows Just How Fast The Stig Really Drives

A 360 Panoramic View Of The Top Gear Test Track

Because of top notch editing and a handful of strategically placed cameras, the average Top Gear viewer may never get a real sense of just how fast The Stig is really able to power supercars around the show’s Dunsfold Aerodrome test track.

To get a sense of that, as well as a totally new perspective of the track from a driver’s point of view, Top Gear recently attached a 360 degree panoramic camera to the top of a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Black for a quick hot lap.

Viewing the lap straightforward may not seem all that remarkable, but shift it 90 degrees to a side perspective and it’s hard not to have a “holy crap” moment at the speed The Stig is able to maintain through some of the track’s more well-known turns like The Hammerhead and Gambon.

Imagine what this would look like if it was place on the current Top Gear Power Lap leader, the Pagani Huayra.
