Episode Summary

EDIT

Richard takes the new Mustang on a road trip along Britain's straightest road to Lincoln. The Prius, a supposedly eco-friendly vehicle, is driven by Jeremy who thinks that a diesel Lupo will actually do more miles per gallon - 75mpg - compared to the 45mpg of the Prius.

The Lamborghini Murcielago is up against the Mitsubishi EVO VIII and the Top Gear Awards are announced.

Roger Daltrey is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jeremy Clarkson: [Referring to the BMW X3] ... it's a big 4 wheel drive off-road car that doesn't work well off-road, or on-road and it's ugly enough to make small children sick.

      • Richard Hammond: The Hyundai Accent, which, is wretched whatever engine it has, but we were particularly depressed with the 3 cylinder diesel version. It really is less fun than drowning.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: [His thoughts on the Toyota Prius] To sum up then: it's a very expensive, very complex not terribly green, slow cheaply made and pointless way of moving around.
