Episode Guide

LeBlanc, Harris and Reid head to Kazakhstan with three cars that have done 480,000 miles, to see which is the most reliable – LeBlanc thinks the most reliable is the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W210), Harris thinks the Swedish Volvo V70 is more reliable, and Reid thinks reliability will come from London’s black cab.

Starting from Turkistan, the trio have two days to make it to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, where along the way their cars will face a series of challenges to see how reliable they really are.

Elsewhere, Harris heads for the Daytona International Speedway in Florida to test out the new, truly exclusive Ferrari FXX-K, while James McAvoy is the star taking on the Reasonably Fast Car.

  1. I honestly really enjoyed this episode. And yes I will admit it, it is one of my top 15 top gear episodes. There definitely are some kinks and creases that need ironing out but it was really funny and enjoyable. But please I want a bit more stig.
