The Invisible Car was created by the Top Gear team to prove that invisiblity wasn't science-fiction in the 50 Years of Bond Special, after critics claimed that the invisble car in "Die Another Day" was sci-fi. The car was driven around town by Richard Hammond.
The invisible car was based upon a modern Ford Transit van, and was mostly covered with flat-screen TVs, with an exception of the windscreen, side windows and front doors. Due to the number of TVs, a man had to sit in the back and operated a generator. When the Particularly Enigmatic New Invisibility System was turned on, recordings from the sides of the car would be displayed in the TVs, making the car appearing 'invisible'.
