Episode Summary

EDIT

Jeremy drives the Mazda RX8. James drives the new Fiat Panda and is quite surprised when it doesn't fall to bits. Richard looks at some modern classics: the Volkswagen Corrado VR6 and the Mercedes 190E 2.5 16 Cosworth.

An 11-year-old diesel Toyota Hilux is tested for its durability by Jeremy. He drives in into a wall, a tree and through a shed. It's left in the Severn Estuary - home to the second biggest tide in the world - hit with a wrecking ball, dropped and set on fire. They even drop a caravan on top of it, but still it works.

Sadly, the same treatment wasn't given to this week's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car - Simon Cowell.
