Episode Summary


Top Gear returns and already the Police are involved. The boys are each given £1,000 to buy a car, which they must then convert for use as a police car. Unlike a real police car, there won't be several hundred metres of forms to fill in if they get a bit dented and they most likely will get dented.

There are some helpful tips on how to drive economically and to demonstrate this, there is a race involving a Ferrari 599, an Aston Martin DBS, a Mercedes McLaren SLR, a Lamborghini Murcielago and an Audi R8.

Jeremy starts the sideways, power-shouting, tyre-shredding fun by driving the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, which was postponed from the last series after a journalist crashed it. James introduces a new member to the Top Gear team.

Justin Lee Collins and Alan Carr are the Star(s) in a Reasonably Priced Car.
