Have you ever wondered which would win in a race between a Typhoon jet fighter and a Bugatti Veyron driven by Richard? Neither have I but it should be a giggle. As should the self-parking Lexus LS600h - a demonstration of which could well end in more headlines.

James drives the new Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead and Jeremy gets to play with the new Ferrari Fiorano 599 GTB; he also drives something much smaller and less sophisticated. This doesn't mean he will be getting a piggy back from Richard, he'll be driving something called the Peel P50.

African Special: The boys travel to Africa with a mission (or two): they must each buy a car but not a 4x4 for no more than 1,500. They must then drive the cars they buy across fairly unforgiving terrain in Botswana - including the Makgadikgadi salt pans, raging rivers and game reserves. Game reserves thats where big carnivorous animals live, isnt it? Hmm...
Also, Stigs African cousin makes an appearance.
