Aaron Paul Drives Red Hatchback On 'Top Gear' Test Track

Aaron Paul may get to drive a sweet Shelby Ford Mustang in his new film, “Need For Speed,” but a few weeks ago the “Breaking Bad” star went across the pond to take a turn behind the wheel of something a little more economical.

In this behind-the-scenes look at Paul’s stint on "Top Gear," we see him do a little unintentional off road driving in a Vauxhall Astra as well as give some insight into what went into creating his latest film.

Paul took part in the series' “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” segment, in which a celebrity completes a timed lap on a race track in the compact European hatchback. The performance is compared to the lap times of previous celebrity guests.

We do wish the BBC would have somehow been able to get Paul behind the wheel of another red hatchback he's been known to drive.

Spoiler alert -- Paul sets a record in the Astra.
