Episode Guide

Watch this episode on Amazon Instant Video

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.

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.

It can’t have ended in a bang as these were recorded long before the row, they had no idea this was gonna happen so they can’t have filmed it.

Not this episode. But the scheduled end (in 3 years).

the guy with no name June 29, 2015 at 7:25 am

I see, but they wouldn’t have filmed that either though xD

the guy with no name June 28, 2015 at 9:56 pm

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 ;_;

I like how they had the elephant in the room in the studio

the guy with no name June 29, 2015 at 7:22 am

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?”

Scooby June 30, 2015 at 8:21 am

It should of been a orangatan because that’s what they both called
Him , I’ve never heard them call him a elephant

the guy with no name June 30, 2015 at 11:07 am

It was an elephant because of the ‘elephant in the room’ saying.

Scooby June 30, 2015 at 6:32 pm

Yes I realised that but it still would of made more sense for an orangatan I suppose .
