It was an end of an era for Jeremy Clarkson on Monday.
The embattled TV presenter completed his final ever lap on the Top Gear test track as he prepared to bid farewell to the car show once and for all.
Taking to Twitter, he asked his followers to help him chose between a Mercedes and two Ferraris.

He wrote: 'Right. About to do my last ever lap of the Top Gear test track. What car should I use?'
Posting a photo of himself with the three luxury vehicles, Jeremy didn't end up revealing which car he ended up choosing.
He was joined in the chosen car by racing driver Marino Franchitti and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.
In a photo posted by Marino on Twitter and retweeted by Jeremy, the 55-year-old looked serious and deep in concentration.
After completing his final lap, he admitted he was sad his Top Gear experience was now finally over: 'My last ever lap of the Top Gear track is done. Bit sad leaving the place for the final time.
'2 good things about the last lap. It raised a load of cash for a good cause. And I did the motherf**ker of all tail slides through Chicago.'
Jeremy was dropped from Top Gear in March this year following a fracus with Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon over a hotel meal.
He has since been replaced by Chris Evans, who is yet to reveal who will join him as two new sidekicks.
There have been rumours Jeremy is hoping to start a rival car show with Richard Hammond and James May on another channel or online.
In his first interview following the incident, Jeremy admitted he suffered a cancer scare around the time of his apparently unprovoked attack of Oisin, who required hospital treatment following the incident.
He told the Times: 'Two days before the "fracas", I had been told, sternly, by my doctor that the lump on my tongue was probably cancer and that I must get it checked out immediately. But I couldn’t do that.
'It was beyond-belief stressful, everything was gong wrong, and then you know... there you go. But everyone has stressful days, and they manage to cope better than I had.'
He said the combination of his health worries, marriage breakdown and the death of his mother had led him to suffer increased stress.
Fortunately for Jeremy, he was later given the all-clear by doctors.
