Season 21 : Episode 7
In the second part of the African special, Jeremy, James and Richard travel through Rwanda and Tanzania. After a perilous river crossing and many punctures, their adventure reaches a dramatic climax as they race against each other, on foot, to claim the glory of discovering the true source of the River Nile.moreless
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.
If you thought Britain's Pensioners needed a car designed especially for them, it's unlikely that you would think Jeremy and Richard were the men for the job. However, someone did think the Pensioners of Britain needed such a car. And it probably was Jeremy and Richard because tonight, that's exactly what they do with the help of some brave members of the elderly community.
James May, 50, drives the new Range Rover around London and in Nevada, wher he competes against the TerraMax: an unmanned truck controlled by computers.
James McAvoy, 33, is the star in the Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
Jeremy drives the new Kia Cee'd. Not in a fast lap around the track, but in a proper road test. If, indeed, a proper test includes Hollywood 'royalty', a rock legend, some eels and James May...
As a consequence of finishing last in the race to the Mexican border in Episode 2, Richard tests the Mastretta MXT. A Mexican car. In Mexico. How hard can that be?
Lewis Hamilton is the F1 Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
Which is the quickest mode of transport to get you from Wembley stadium in London to the San Siro stadium in Milan? Jeremy believes it's the car - specifically the Shelby Mustang GT500 - and 'the other two' believe the European rail network will do the job. This sounds very much like one of Top Gear's famous races. And indeed it is.
Back home, on the track, Jeremy slides, spins and shouts 'power!' (probably) at the Toyota GT86 and Amy Macdonald is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
This week the boys are in the western United States. Travelling from Las Vegas to Los Angeles via Palm Springs, they make their journey in three front-engined supercars: the Lexus LFA, Dodge Viper and the Aston Martin Vanquish. The trip involves a race against the police and a dash to the Mexican border, where the last man to arrive faces a 'terrifying' penalty.
Mick Fleetwood is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
The long wait is over. The boys are back. And it's straight down to supercar business with Richard driving the £800,000 Pagani Huayra. James, rather appropriately, is in a Bentley. Rather inappropriately, he's in a Continental GT Speed and he takes it rallying. Meanwhile, Jeremy, the word's tallest motoring Journalist, has built the world's smallest car.
