    Hi Forum,

    See info from the producers of Fifth Gear.....

    I was hoping you might be able to help.


    My name is Jordan and I’m the producer on the popular motoring series Fifth Gear. I was looking online and I came across your owners club.


    On Monday 18th June, we’re doing some filming down at Bicester Heritage. As part of our filming we’re looking to shoot with a good example of an E55 AMG. I wanted to reach out to ask if any of your members might be interested.


    Our presenter will want to drive the car (not stupidly) and we’ll arrange the insurance side of things. We’re not looking to interview the owners – we’re just looking for a nice car to film with for a couple of hours. We can cover expenses and fuel.


    Please let me know if any of your members would be interested. If you need to get hold of me, I'm on 07821017799 or feel free to send me an e-mail.


    Warm regards,

    Jordan


    Jordan Livermore | Producer | Fifth Gear | North One Television | 3-7 Ray Street, Farringdon, London EC1R 3DR |[​IMG] 0207 874 6633 | [​IMG] jordan.livermore@northonetv.com

    Is fifth gear coming back then?

    They used my 210 E55 a while back, nice experience all around, but I thought the show had ended?

    Hello,

    Said producer of the show here. Yes, as Mark mentioned - we're coming back in a couple months time with filming starting next week.

    The date has changed to Friday 22nd June and we're looking for a great example of an E55 AMG for a couple of hours. We can pay expenses, petrol and maybe an odd cup of tea.

    We're arranging locations at the moment. In the meantime if anyone knows a friendly E55 AMG owner who would be up for this - send them my way!

    Yes I've seen this thread and am thinking it over.
    I'm picturing Jason Plato or Tiff Needell giving it a seeing to on track and that doesn't inspire me to volunteer to be honest.

    Hi @AMGeed

    I understand your concern completely. Firstly let me put your mind at rest that Jason / Tiff aren't involved in this item. We're not visiting a track and this is going to be strictly on-the-road shots. We're not going to be idiots with it. At the end of the day we're filming owners pride and joy and every care will be put into ensuring it's driven responsibly. If you're interested in having your car filmed (and it does sound like exactly what we're after) please e-mail me; Jordan.Livermore@northonetv.com

    Or an E350 estate, I do have a slight advantage with mine being one of the original press cars :)

    My powers of restraint are clearly less developed than yours.... :)

    Indeed ...however ‘twas only because the thread was started by someone outside the normal forum lurkers that I did use restraint. They need not know what pervs we really are...and VBH might get to read this too ( and see what good taste we have)
    :)
    Anyway need to stop thinking about that so I can prepare for my visitors from OneHunga tomorrow...
