Episode Summary


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.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say that his discharge is luminous. And that even as we speak, he is appearing on the main stage at Glastonbury performing his most famous hit 'Superstition'. All we know is he's called the Stig.

      • James May: [Referring to the Toyota Hilux] Wow! I never actually thought I'd be so pleased to see one of these again. This really brings it all back... The ice going on and on forever, the bolder field going on and on forever. I can hear Jeremy going on and on forever.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Cars these day are all so safe and refined and they're all built in wheat-free, multi-ethnic factories with one eye on Johnny polar bear.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: [Referring to the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster] It's as in tune with the times as a blaze in an oil refinery. And I love that.
