Episode Guide

Matt LeBlanc heads to the USA to test the Dodge Demon. First in the shape of a drag race. And secondly in the shape of “landing a priceless, very-difficult-to-land NASA research plane”. Because there’s no way that could ever end anything but excellently.

Next up, to explain exactly why Citroen 2CV is such a masterpiece, Chris Harris heads to rural France to relate its glorious history, a swashbuckling tale of derring-do and Nazis, and the smoking of a vast number of Gitanes. At which point a very sceptical Matt LeBlanc rocked up. With a stovepipe hat. And, for reasons unclear, some eggs. And, for reasons even more unclear, a couple of sheep. Can Harris convince MLB – and indeed the sheep – of the paysanne charms of the Deux Chevaux? Can the smell of raw egg ever be removed from 50-year-old upholstery?

Lastly, in recent years South Korea has produced many millions of cars – but very few of them have been in any interesting. But with recent signs of excitement in Korea, in the explosive shape of the Kia Stinger and Hyundai i30N, Rory Reid headed to the Top Gear test track to see if the Korean upstarts could really mix it with the European big boys.
