Season 22 : Episode 10
Jeremy, James and Richard are back in the United States. And this time there's no redneck baiting. Instead, they travel from North Carolina to New York - where the locals are well-known for their tolerance... On their last American road trip, the boys drove cars bought for $1,000. This time they get to travel in a little more style with the Ferrari 458 Italia, Mercedes Benz AMG SLS and Porsche 911 GT3.
The Director of Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire, Danny Boyle, is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Ferrari's latest beast is the 458 Italia and Jeremy drives it on the track. As a consequence, this week's programme might contains shouts of 'power!' and some dribbling.
On a gentler note, each of the boys has a budget of £5,000 with which to buy an old British sports car. They then set off on a nostalgic roadtrip from Norfolk - the home of Lotus - via the former Jensen factory in the Midlands to Blackpool, where TVR used to build its cars.
Jeff Goldblum is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Broadcast times: BBC2 9:30pm, BBC HD 11:00pm.
Richard races Volkswagen's latest version of the Touareg 4x4 against some snowmobilers in Sweden. James returns to Ehra-Lessien in Germany to try and break his own speed record, set in a Bugatti Veyron, in the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Jeremy pays tribute to Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton drives Senna's 1988 McLaren MP4/4.
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are the rather large Hollywood Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car. Yes, they really are.
Jeremy, James and Richard drive the Aston Martin Rapide, Porsche Panamera Turbo and the Maserati Quattroporte GTS; four-seater cars from manufacturers more famous for their two-door cars.
Richard also drives the Chevrolet Camaro SS and Mercedes E63 AMG. Formula 1 driver Rubens Barrichello is the latest F1 driver to try his luck in the Reasonably Priced Car and Rupert Grint is the (not an F1) Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Stig gets to play with the new Bentley Continental Supersports, whilst Jeremy enters the exciting and sometimes topsy-turvy world of the three-wheeled Reliant Robin. James drives a Toyota Hilux up a volcano in Iceland - yes, that volcano - and Richard says goodbye to the reasonably-priced Lacetti. He and Jeremy then host a 'star-studded' barbecue to introduce the new Reasonably Priced Car: a Kia Cee'd, affectionately known as the cee - apostrophe - dee.moreless
