Episode Summary

In an attempt to prove that trains are useless, the lads race from the exclusive surroundings of the Top Gear studio in Surrey, to the downbeat Café de Paris, Place du Casino in Monte Carlo. Richard and James take trains (including the high-speed TGV) whilst Jeremy drives an Aston Martin DB9.

The show also introduces the Indian-made City Rover. However, Rover wouldn't let anyone on Top Gear drive one, so an ingenious plan is hatched to test the car using covert tactics. On the track an Apache helicopter gunship tries to get missile lock on a Lotus Exige driven by Jeremy - obviously!
