      Can you go motor racing for less than it costs to play golf? A question no badly dressed person has ever asked. This week, Jeremy, James and Richard see if you can go motor racing for less than it costs to play golf.

      Richard is on track duty this week with the new twin-turbo, V8-powered BMW M5 and James drives a Ferrari 250 GT California. Kimi Raikkonen is the F1 Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. Slash is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

      Jeremy, James and Richard are in Uganda to discover the definitive source of the River Nile. In the past many explorers have claimed to have done just that, but were unlikely to have done it in three estate cars bought for no more than £1,500.

      In this 'American special', Jeremy, James and Richard are on a fly-drive holiday with a difference. Instead of hiring a car, each has to buy a car for no more than $1000. Starting in Miami, they travel through Mississippi and Alabama - where they manage to upset the locals - and end their journey in New Orleans. As usual, there will be some Top Gear challenges along the way; a dead cow, prostitute-obsessed truckers and a meeting with Fat Stig - Stig's American cousin.moreless
    • Polar Special
      Season 9 - Episode 7
      7/25/07
      9.6
      The distance between Resolute in northern Canada and the magnetic North Pole at Ellef Ringnes Island is 320 nautical miles [450 miles]. It's a journey across sea ice and unforgiving mountainous terrain, where temperatures can drop to minus 65ºC - a temperature at which exposed skin can freeze in less than 30 seconds. Only fools would attempt such a journey. So Jeremy and James are attempting to do it in the now legendary Toyota Hilux and Richard hopes to make it on a sled pulled by ten Canadian Inuit dogs.

But why hire one when you can make your own? Step forward the Top Gear boys who do just that. Once built, they use their stretch limos to ferry the 'stars' to the Brit Awards. On the track, two Ford Mustangs: one tuned by Shelby and the other by Roush. Have the Americans finally built a car that deserves more than pointing and giggling from smug Europeans?

So expect amongst other things: car ice-hockey with Suzuki Swifts, Jeremy trying to drive the new Jaguar XK around the ice rink faster than a speed skater and Stig riding a snowmobile down the ski-jump. James and Jeremy compete against each other in a biathlon using an Audi Q7 and a Volvo XC90, with the loser having to eat yellow snow.

Richard buys a 924 (the one with the van engine) for £750, James a 944 for £900 and Jeremy - predictably a 928S for £1,500. They are then set a series of challenges to see who has bought the best car.

      Jeremy also drives the new Golf GTI and described it as a sensation (even though it weighs the same as "South Africa").
      A Mini is featured in Restoration Rip-Off and Billy Baxter, a blind man, tries to set a faster time in the Liana than Richard Whiteley and Terry Wogan.

      Jeremy drives the Mazda RX8. James drives the new Fiat Panda and is quite surprised when it doesn't fall to bits. Richard looks at some modern classics: the Volkswagen Corrado VR6 and the Mercedes 190E 2.5 16 Cosworth.

      An 11-year-old diesel Toyota Hilux is tested for its durability by Jeremy. He drives in into a wall, a tree and through a shed. It's left in the Severn Estuary - home to the second biggest tide in the world - hit with a wrecking ball, dropped and set on fire. They even drop a caravan on top of it, but still it works.

      Sadly, the same treatment wasn't given to this week's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car - Simon Cowell.

This time, the race is on to see who will be the first to get from Alba in northern Italy, to the NatWest Tower in London. James and Richard are in a light aircraft piloted by James - Jeremy has to make-do with a Bugatti Veyron.

      Yet another new Porsche - this time it's the Carrera 911 4 - a four-wheel drive Porsche. James, with help from the Stig, finds out if it is faster than the rear-wheel drive 911 using a track set up inside the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff as part of a special stage of the British leg of the World Rally championship.

      In response to recent criticism regarding speed, Top Gear presents to you - and I hope in particular, the Scottish Green Party, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. That's that criticism dealt with then. They get through a fair amount of petrol on Top Gear, so in an attempt to find an alternative source of fuel, The Captain, Brokeback and Murderer go green - slightly, by attempting to 'grow' their own fuel. The sight of tractors on the Top Gear track will undoubtedly delight and confuse in equal measure. The chance of a small fire is also quite likely. Also this week, Jeremy makes a public information film: this involves crashing a train into a people carrier - a French people carrier. It might not have the same effect as the public information films from the 1970s, but at least the clothing will be authentic. To the absolute delight of Jeremy, Kristin Scott Thomas is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless

As should the self-parking Lexus LS600h - a demonstration of which could well end in more headlines. The new Lamborghini Reventón - the new limited-edition model based on the Murciélago LP640 - will also be in the studio.

      James drives the new Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead and Jeremy gets to play with the new Ferrari Fiorano 599 GTB. He also drives something much smaller and less sophisticated... this doesn't mean he will be getting a piggy back from Richard, he'll be driving something called the Peel P50.
