Episode Summary


The lads take three convertibles to Iceland - the land of 'geological lunacy'. Specifically, they are the Chrysler Crossfire, Nissan 350Z and the Audi TT.

The Ferrari F430 finally makes an appearance at the Top Gear test track in Berlinetta and Spyder form. In the studio, there is a Citroën C2 hatchback, which has had more than £100,000 lavished on it.

Sir Tim Rice is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say that his heart ticks like a watch. And that he is confused by stairs. All we know is he's called the Stig.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: [referring to the the Audi TT convertible] There are footballers' wives who'd be happy with this quality stitching on their faces.

      • Richard Hammond: [referring to the dull driving experience of the Audi TT] Apparently there is a volcano over there under a glacier and it's twenty years overdue an eruption. With a bit of luck it will go off today and liven-up my afternoon.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Hello and welcome to Top Gear. Now, we get quite a few complaints that we don't feature enough affordable cars on the show. So tonight we're kicking off with the cheapest Ferrari of them all.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: [referring to the Nissan Skyline] Now that's about as good as a cars got and that's what I want - a new one of those.

        James May: That's an awful car. That's an awful... the thing about those cars is they're... well, look: they're lumpy, they're bumpy, they've got spoilers, they usually have stupid wheels, they've got bulges on the bonnet, they've got a shiny interior, they're driven by idiots in baseball caps on the wrong way round.

        Jeremy Clarkson: Has anybody got a gun?
