The first film sees Jeremy, Richard and James living the lifestyle of traditional classic car buffs, acquiring a Fiat 124 Spyder, Peugeot 304 Cabriolet and MGB GT before setting off an adventure incorporating brown beer, breakdowns (inevitably) and attending a car show where everything goes wrong.

In the second film sees the boys attempt to become ‘lifestyle leisure enthusiasts’ with the help of some very ratty old 4x4s. Armed with a budget of just £250, they each purchase a high-mileage, low-quality SUV – Clarkson a Vauxhall Frontera, Hammond a Jeep Cherokee and May a Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin – before embarking on a series of gruelling challenges, including a battle with the Stig’s Leisure Activity Cousin, which climaxes with a race that has a terrifying penalty for the person who loses.

More details coming soon.

  1. I wantedTop Gear to end with a Big Bombshell, Everything explodes! But no, Top Gear has ended sad and silence. It was a good episode.

  2. What a great way to end. Watching the studio bits was sad.

    Also, the Japfest should have been called the ‘Crapfest’. It was full of garbage and morons who have clearly watched too much early Fast & Furious. The guys have been to Castle Combe before with the Mondeo priced classic supercars.

    The TG test facility was also where they did the communist cars film. And that quarry looked like a down sized version of the massive one in Australia. Their cars didn’t break because it was soft sand hey were rolling down and not rock.

    I nearly dies from laughter during Hammond’s wing walking session and the tag race.

    Jezza: “I hate working on Top Gear!” Don’t worry, you don’t have to anymore xD

    Watching the silent end credits was heart wrenching though.

    Good bye TG ;_;

  3. That can’t be the last episode , what should we watch , fifth gear ? instead staying like monkeys , why we don’t do something to mantain top-gear alive? let’s sign a petition , something …

    • I only just clocked that when you mentioned ‘the elephant in the room’ LOL! All of last night I was like “What on earth is that elephant doing there?”

  4. I hate how you all put all fault on jerremy yet i hope that the jeremy fiqures out how to resurect topgear on netfix
