Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May embark on a grand road trip across Australia’s Northern Territory.

Tasked with picking a fast, luxurious GT for the trip, Clarkson chooses a BMW M6 Gran Coupe, Hammond a Bentley Continental GT V8 and May a Nissan GT-R, as the trio set out on an adventure that takes in crocodile-infested rivers, a race around a vast open-cast mine, an encounter with the world’s longest lorries and the majestic scenery of one of the world’s least-inhabited landscapes. Their dusty endeavor concludes with an unusual challenge involving a farm, their cars and 4,000 cows.

Some say…

“It isn’t The Stig… but it is The Stig’s Australian Cousin.”

  1. I don’t understand Richard Hammond, if he is a guy of simple humble tastes why not like the Nissan GTR? I mean it is the common man’s hero? The Robin Hood of Super cars? I’m surprised James took the GTR and not the Continental. I thought it’d be Jezza with GTR, Hammond with the Bemmer and James with the Bentley.

    • may needs the gtr’s computers since he cant drive, hammond we know loves the bentley but clarkson should have brought a car with some power

      • Mate we are talking about the man, the myth, the legend. Captain Slow has driven a car at 263 MPH, No body except the Bugatti Test Driver has gone faster than that. But yeah I’m so happy that they brought the old GTR back. I mean Top Gear severely underrates Japanese cars. I mean when was the last time they actually brought a Japanese car to a challenge? I mean at Monza against the 458, I’d love to seen Hammond with the GTR, He could have crushed Clarkson, and May. I don’t understand him, Jeremy, May, Chris Harris, Tiff Needel have always praised the GTR, yet Hammond calls it a Datsun

          • Yes, but the vampire was just a massive rocket on wheels (much like the bloodhound). Modern top speed machines use cheap tactics to get there.

            I.e. in the case of the Veyron you have 4 massive turbos, 16 cylinders, 9 liters and an abundance of tech.

            The last true top speed machine was the McLaren F1

  2. interesting episode… i can’t help but be slightly disappointed in it. I think they should have still done the news to shorten the Australia film a bit. I’d give it an 8/10

    • Probably towards then end of the series, because everyone is looking forward to that part. I’m dying to see the ambulance challenge.

  3. To be honest when they announced a GT car challenge I was expecting Jeremy in a Maserati Granturismo or DB9, James in the continental and Hammond in a Ferrari FF or a Jag XKR. Good cars though :). Thanks for the upload as always !

    • This is going to drive away people who don’t want to make an Amazon account (like me). Or can’t make one since it wants some form of payment method regardless of the free trial (also like me, since I only just recently got my first cash card). Now I just go to streetfire and look there or on iplayer.

        • I do really disapprove this decision, i always liked your way of approach,to make TG available where its not being shown in TV for free,and without paying blatant amounts of money for episodes Brit’s enjoy in FreeTV.

          • Yes but unfortunately it is illegal to do so. British residents pay a yearly license fee of £145.50 (USD$220) in order to legally watch TV channels such as BBC2. That’s per TV as well.

          • Oh well Thank you TopGearBox for keeping this wonderful site free for a long time! I understand your situation. Thanks for everything, it is a bit sad that we have to pay $3 per episode. Oh well must watch Top Gear lol. It will be tight but I’ll manage.

          • It’s a shame. It was a good run, though. I just regret that I couldn’t find this webside sooner.

            Well, I’m sure not paying Amazon for this one, so I guess its back to searching free streaming. Still, I’ll come back from time to time to see if you ever set the episodes to be watched for free again.

          • I’m only coming here for the news updates, because the official TG site has a lot of junk that is of no concern to me whereas here we get the relevant stuff.

          • If you set up a VPN link to make it look like you live in the UK, you can use the BBC iPlayer to watch them for free (for a limited period after transmission). That said, some of the revenue you pay to Amazon should hopefully make its way back into Autie Beeb’s pocket to help fund another series…

          • “but ultimately content creators deserve to be paid for their efforts so they can continue producing quality content into the future.”

            I bet that’s not the actual reason. Amazon probably made you an offer of some sort if you link their videos. I don’t have anything against it because everyone does it in one way or another (like ads). *no intended sarcasm* Otherwise you wouldn’t have posted free episodes for so long. Oh well, R.I.P TGB

          • Not at all. I ran this website by the book (no streams) for the first 4 or 5 years and only added them a year ago due to their widespread availability – and I no longer want that hanging over my head. The situation has changed recently too, with good streams for Series 22 being pretty much impossible to find – meaning I was having to encode and upload the videos myself. My aim for TGB was to essentially be a Top Gear encyclopaedia, not a place where people come and harass me each week to upload the episode.

          • Probably the kind of agreement that says ‘Ok Amazon, we’ll link to your video instead & you won’t prosecute’…

        • I can understand that you want start using a service wich isn’t free, but why use a service wich isn’t work outside US. The whole Europe for example!
