The Stig is the name given to the racing driver on the BBC show Top Gear. In the show he is cast as a mysterious "Tame Racing Driver". He is credited as a presenter alongside Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
The Stig's primary functions on the show are to post Power Laps times in various cars around the Top Gear Test Track in Dunsfold Park, and to train each week's guest in setting a lap time in the Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car feature on the show. In addition The Stig carries out other driving and personal appearance duties when the need arises.
The Stig has also appeared on some of Jeremy Clarkson's motoring specials, such as Heaven and Hell, Thriller and Duel.

This diecast model of the Aston Martin DBS is exquisitely detailed, and an exact replica of the car 'The Stig' drove around the Top Gear test track as part of the 'Power Laps' series, in a stunning time of 1 minute 23.9 seconds. It is part of a series of collectable models being produced by Minichamps in association with Top Gear.

There are just 2,009 of this model worldwide, making it highly collectable, and it is beautifully presented in fully branded packaging, including the track time this car achieved on the TV show.
The coming together of Minichamps, the UK's leading diecast brand, and Top Gear, TV's greatest motoring show, is a fantastic combination most collectors have only dreamed about until now, and gives you the opportunity to own a piece of history. Don't hang around - they'll go faster than you could possibly believe!
