Saw something similar a while ago, they used 3 layers of tempered glass and taped them together at the edge. Then they used a punch and hammer to shatter the middle pane. Looked really cool

Is that where it was from? I remember Jeremy made that table from the Porsche 928 engine block which was pretty cool. But to answer your question, yes I watch Top Gear almost every day. They made me buy an Exige afterall

SIMPLE RECIPE FOR EXCITEMENT: Take 1 new Exige. Throw in a supercharger. Add 6 gears. A dash of 94 Octane. A sprinkle of carbon fiber inside and out. Toss in 1 MadMan. And finally heat tires and pavement to taste. Recipe produces 1 Lotus Exige S-260 and full satisfaction. Hammer Down!!
