Episode Summary

EDIT

Jeremy, James and the little one return for a 14th series of political incorrectness and exotic, automotive indulgence. In this opening episode, the boys travel to Romania with an Aston Martin DBS Volante, a Ferrari California and a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder to find the Transfagarasan Highway; a road built by the former Romanian dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu.

James drives the BMW 760i and Mercedes S63 AMG, whilst Eric Bana drives the Lacetti around the track.

New time: 9pm on Sunday, BBC2 and BBC HD.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say that in the autumn, all his arms go brown and fall off. And if he wrote you a letter of condolence he would at least get your name right. All we know is he's called the Stig.

      • James May: [referring to the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder] This car is actually filling me with a primordial lust. It actually tingles down in my bowels. It's sinful.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Coming here in a car that cost £168,000 is a bit like turning up in the Sudan in a suit made entirely out of food.

      • James May: By driving around in a Lamborghini, you are actually doing the world a favour because it's a thing of beauty: other people can look at it and they can enjoy it. It's like owning one of Raphael's Virgins and running around the streets, holding it above your head instead of just putting it on the wall.
