Episode Guide

Main review: Pagani Zonda S Roadster, which Clarkson says Hammond fell in love with and that girls who came there showing their bare midriffs there were wasting their time

Challenge: Hammond and May spend 24 hours in a Smart Forfour to see if the brochure claim ‘designed like a lounge’ makes the experience tolerable. They find it handles well, it’s styled nicely, and it turns heads well enough to get people to buy them food, but it’s simply too expensive for what it is.

Restoration Rip-Off: 1978 Range Rover previously owned by Princess Diana. The Range Rover had just 58,000 kilometres but the engine needed complete repair.

Skit: Hammond and May attempt to play conkers with 6 caravans, appearing to take great skill in their choice of caravans for the game. Hammond ends up as the winner of the game.

Star in a Reasonably Priced Car: Jimmy Carr thinks motorways should be Autobahn at night and talks about owning a Rover 75. The Stig described him as “the worst driver we’ve ever had and the luckiest man alive”, but Carr beats Simon Cowell to the top of board with 1:46.9.

Review: The Aston Martin Vanquish S, which Clarkson tests in a race against Steve Coogan in a Ferrari 575M GTC. The Vanquish has been improved greatly, but it is still no match for the Ferrari on the track. However, as an all-rounder, with looks and comfort taken into consideration, Clarkson and Coogan would rather have the underdog Aston than the big-headed Ferrari.
