BBC publishes a set of Top Gear trading cards based on their program of the same name about automobiles. There have already been several video games based on the program.

The cards are called Top Gear Turbo Challenge and are distributed through the magazine of the same name. To collect an entire set of 276 cards you will have to repeatedly buy the magazine. Assuming the packs you collect give you exactly what you’re looking for (super-rares occur only once in every sixteen packs), it will cost you £792.00 to collect them all. (source, via)

Welcome to the next generation of cardboard crack.

What can you do with these cards? Use them to unlock codes in some online games, or play a series of card games that are a lot like War, but less interesting.
