Episode Guide

Main review: Dodge Viper SRT10. Jeremy can only briefly knock the barn-door engineering because he loves it. Sets a time of 1:28.5 in the wet.

News: The £140,000 Bugatti Veyron wristwatch, which you need a butler to put on.

Challenge: Clarkson tries to drive a Land Rover Discovery up a mountain in Scotland. The summit he finally reaches is that of Cnoc an Fhreiceadain (Watch Hill), above Coldbackie, and not Ben Tongue as widely reported at the time.

Maddest Car: Hammond finds the world’s maddest car, in Switzerland. It’s the Rinspeed Splash, which becomes a hydrofoil boat.

Restoration Rip-Off: Keith Moon’s 1938 Chrysler Wimbledon, which was originally a British staff car during World War II, but later driven into a duck pond.

Star in a Reasonably Priced Car: Joanna Lumley talks to Jeremy about how poor British Leyland were with car consistency in The New Avengers and how she once stalked a car. Lap of 1:51.5
