Top Gear Oz in trouble


Filming of the Australian series reportedly turned into a demolition derby

Car companies are furious at the damage done to their vehicles during a recent filming of the hit show in Australia.

The Herald Sun is reporting the repair bill is almost $200,000.

A Lamborghini sustained around AU$25,000 worth of damage, and a group of Holden Astas needed $30,000 to restore them after they were used in a game of "lawn bowls".

"All we will say is that it turned out to be a very expensive test drive," said Holden spokeswoman Kate Lonsdale of the Astra bowls stunt.
