Episode Summary

EDIT

There's a rather British feel to this week's episode. Jeremy drives the new Jaguar F-Type along some of the country's finest, most scenic roads. Richard drives the new Range Rover Sport in Cheshire (its natural habitat) and James drives an updated version of one of Britain's most iconic vehicles - the new 'Bus for London', which boasts a turbo-diesel generator and electric motor.

In a grand finale, Jeremy, James and Richard meet on the Mall, outside Buckingham Palace, to celebrate the British motor industry.

Mark Webber is the F1 Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Viewing figures: 4.68 million (19.5%).


        These are 'overnight' figures. They do not include iPlayer statistics and will be lower than the 'official' figure.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • James May: [referring to the New Bus for London] Over its lifetime, it's reckoned that 4 million people will get on and off it, so it is a bit of a collection point for vomit and sputum and other bodily secretions.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: The Royal Mail, as we know, often issues commemorative stamps. You know, they pick on a subject like woodpeckers or hats or diseases.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Richard Hammond: "I think we should dress them up like actual Wombles".


        The Wombles were created by author Elizabeth Beresford. 'Wombles' are furry creatures whose job was to collect the rubbish left by people around their home on Wimbledon Common.


        They first appeared in print in 1968, but became better-known when they appeared in a stop motion animation series 'The Wombles' in 1973.

      • James May: "Your Oyster card is about to expire".


        An Oyster card is a pre-paid 'electronic ticket' used on public transport in London. Introduced in 2003, 43 million cards have been issued and they are now used in 80% of all journeys made in the capital.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: "It's a bit like going to Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancey and saying 'right, Abbey, you take the penalty and then Peter you model the bikini".


        Peter Crouch is a professional footballer. He has represented England on 42 occasions. He has played for 12 different clubs, most notably for Liverpool between 2005 - 2008.


        Abbey Clancey is a model. She and Crouch married in 2011.
