Episode Summary

EDIT

A budget of £1,500, a rear-wheel drive coupé and some French ice. Undoubtedly a Top Gear challenge equally as daft as any which has gone before. Jeremy drives the new 500bhp Jaguar XFR.

Sienna Miller is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

  • Still on budget, but more fun than previous few episodes.

    We are now at the 5th episode of the series, so most likely there is only going to be one more. The enjoyment of the races/challenges was at the center here with them going to France while they check out rear-wheel drive cars.



    This race is fun, and the race in the snow pretty good television. However, the clear budgeting of this season is starting to annoy me. Surely they must be able to spend more money than this. We have now had episode after episode with cheap cars, and they are not even changing them (like into boats or something...). Instead we have had some sort of reason for them to pick three cars, so far: - Find a reasonably priced car - Find the perfect car for a 17 year old - Spend only 1500 on a rear-wheel drive



    There has been no Porsche Jeep in the Mountains while someone is parachuting down, no Bugatti racing a plane, no safari tour or trip to America, no Buses or Trailers racing, no real trashing of cars, no modification work or difficult projects.



    Though this episode was really enjoyable, it sort of underscored that the other 4 were not very good.



    Hope that something unusual and exciting is coming in episode 6, or I will call season 13 the lazy budgeted season!moreless
