Episode Guide

Matt LeBlanc is the first to try it out in the new Aston Martin DB11, where he’s transported to, um, Montenegro, to be chased down by a villainous Chris Harris in an even more villainous Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. Yeah, it all gets a bit Bond for this.

Elsewhere, Rory Reid takes to the Nürburgring to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original Golf GTI reaching Britain. Yep, 40 years since the first ever GTI-badged Golf landed on our shores. But is the new Clubsport S less a hot hatch, and more a two-seat supercar in disguise? Rory brings along someone who knows a thing or two about the Nürburgring, Sabine Schmitz…

There’s also the small matter of Matt driving the original, classic, and rather gorgeous Fiat 124 Spider. Can the new Abarth 124 keep the original’s spirit alive?

  1. Maybe it is just me who miss it or sth I don’t know. But I find it weird they dont mention stuff like price when they test cars. Or even basic info abut what different models cost and include or sth. Old Top Gear trio was much better on this imo.

    • I don’t know about the Mazda/Fiat review by LeBlanc as I need to rewatch that, but I remember both Harris & LeBond mention something along the lines in the DB11/S63 AMG.
