Top Definition
One of the trio who presents Top Gear, along with Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.
Originally from Bristol, he now lives in West London.
Has also worked as a journalist for many years, including Autocar where he was fired for a rather subtle printing message in a particular issue.
Generally the opposite to Jeremy Clarkson, including giving him stick on his rather rash nature, and taking plenty for being much more sensible. Is often patrionisingly called 'Captain Slow' and 'The Christian Motorist'. However, the pair worked together to become the first people to successfully drive a car to the magnetic North Pole.
Also likes to be patriotically British, including referencing the war frequently, drinking real ale and praising old British luxury motors.
James May is every bit as important to Top Gear as Jeremy Clarkson.

A cockney actor who actually has his East End accent in real life, because he comes from Hackney.
Generally plays the tough man, but can also portray quite a bit of character depth in his performances due to excellent acting abilities.
Was first noted for his starring role in a violent 1979 film called 'Scum', however his finest performance is surely in 'Nil by Mouth' where he plays a violent father living in a South London council flat, generally calling anyone he meets a cunt.
Away from the screen is a big West Ham United fan and one time spokesman for Kellogg's cereal.
Ray Winstone is a geezer's geezer, who brings out the Cockney in all of us. Rub-a-dub, brown bread etc.

Italian automotive manufacturer from Turin. Now stands alone in the Italian automotive industry, helping companies like Alfa Romeo and Lancia keep going by buying them up when on the brink of collapsing, forming what is now called the Fiat Group.
Fiat's car have traditionally had a reputation for being problematic, especially electricals. This in part is because as a nation, Italy was very poor after World War 2, and the public couldn't afford high quality cars, so quality control was almost non-existant.
The Panda in the 80s was a very popular little runaround, and was the real definition of a city car with its ultra low running costs.
After many years of constant jokes against the all round quality, as of mid 2000's, motoring experts are starting to warm more towards Fiat's cars. Now Fiat hopes to convince the public.
Driving a 1970's Fiat 128 is a fun game, because you cannot possibly predict what will go wrong next. The wipers could pack up, the engine could die or a panel might come loose.
