Jeremy, James and Richard continue their journey through Burma in the three lorries they bought, unseen, on the Internet.

Richard is in Abu Dhabi to drive the 886 bhp Porsche 918 Spyder around the Yas Marina F1 circuit. Stig also drives the Porsche and the McLaren P1 around the Top Gear track: if he can set a faster lap time for the Porsche, Jeremy has promised to change his name to Jennifer.
Speaking of Jennifer - 'he' drives the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf GTI and the BMW M135i. Meanwhile, in an unexpected move, Jeremy/Jennifer and James create a public information film to promote safer cycling, which they present to members of Westminster Council and former cyclist Chris Boardman, who won the gold medal for the Individual Pursuit at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.
Aaron Paul is the Star (apparently) in the Reasonably Priced Car.moreless

Richard is in Dubai to play in the sand with the six-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 - one of only two in existence.

Expect gunfire.

James also drives a modern recreation of the Porsche 911.
Steven Tyler is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless

Hugh Jackman is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
The boys travel to Spain in an attempt to ease the country's struggling economy. How they think think they can do this driving the Ferrari 458, Audi R8 V10 and the McLaren MP4-12C spyders, turning a Madrid town into a street circuit, drag racing on an abandoned runway and cruising the mountain roads is anyone's guess.
Benedict Cumberbatch is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless

If you thought Britain's Pensioners needed a car designed especially for them, it's unlikely that you would think Jeremy and Richard were the men for the job.

Which is the quickest mode of transport to get you from Wembley stadium in London to the San Siro stadium in Milan?

This sounds very much like one of Top Gear's famous races. And indeed it is.
Back home, on the track, Jeremy slides, spins and shouts 'power!' (probably) at the Toyota GT86 and Amy Macdonald is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless

Mick Fleetwood is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
The long wait is over. The boys are back. And it's straight down to supercar business with Richard driving the £800,000 Pagani Huayra. James, rather appropriately, is in a Bentley. Rather inappropriately, he's in a Continental GT Speed and he takes it rallying. Meanwhile, Jeremy, the word's tallest motoring Journalist, has built the world's smallest car.
Damian Lewis is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless

Louis Walsh is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
