Ant Anstead Admits He Missed Out On 'Top Gear' After Writing Off Car During Screen Test

Car enthusiast and TV personality Ant Anstead has opened up about being in the running to take over as a presenter on ‘Top Gear’ last year, revealing that the job was almost his until he fluffed his screen test in a major way.

To check out his abilities, BBC bosses had Ant drive a sports car worth around £85,000 around a test track, only for him to wind up writing off the car.

I was asked to take around the track an AMG C63 Mercedes estate. This is a brand-new car worth around £85,000. It’s fantastic — very fast and everything you want in a car.

“Unfortunately I fluffed it and got it a bit wrong. I came off the track and the car hit the tyre wall full on the side.”
