"Top Gear" star James May knows about cars. In this three-part series, he explores the history of that transportation method, beginning with how people first got their vehicles. His findings show that design brilliance, abject failure, war and fraud shaped early days of the industry in places like Germany and Britain. The host spotlights microcars, automotive rivalries, and the development of modern machines as he reveals "the ultimate people's car", his choice for the greatest vehicle in history.
James May takes a look at the 'peoples car'. Covering every form of cars for the masses, from the Beetle to the Kei Car, May looks at the many forms of people's car, their origins and their effect on history. Each episode covers a particular theme; these being cars from dictatorships, micro-cars and the dream cars we aspire to. Throughout each episode, May drives a variety of cars, often giving them a mini road test while also talking about the car itself. As well as this, May also travels around the world to the country of origin of the various cars he drives, where he also performs some challenges and tests on the car. The entire show has a slight element of Top Gear about it, but it's very much a documentary as well.
