In this opening episode, the boys travel to Romania with an Aston Martin DBS Volante; a Ferrari California and a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.
James drives the BMW 760i and Mercedes S63 AMG, whilst Eric Bana drives the Lacetti around the track.
The boys' propensity to be ambitious but rubbish, means the possibility of electrocution looms large this week, as Jeremy, James and Richard attempt to build their own electric car.
On the track, the American Corvette ZR1, tries its best to compete with the German Audi R8 V10.
Michael Sheen is this week's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
This week, the boys try to identify which car manufacturer has made the greatest number of great cars. A decision which will surely be reached, with much arguing and shouting. James takes a caravan to a camp site, but chooses not to clog up the roads for proper motorists whilst doing so and Jeremy drives a replica of a classic rally car on the track. Chris Evans is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Jeremy wanders the sewers beneath Belfast in the new Renault Twingo 133, for what will probably be a really good reason. Richard, possibly having watched that Cadbury's advert, takes part in Airport Vehicle Racing and James, rather more sensibly, reviews the Vauxhall Insignia. Yes, a car review! On the track, Jeremy drives some 4x4s designed to get your children to school very quickly: the BMW X5M, Audi Q7 V12 and a super charged Range Rover.
This week, Jeremy, James, and Richard are curating an exhibition of motor-related art at the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (in, not surprisingly, Middlesbrough). This exhibition includes work created by the three presenters. On the track, Jeremy drives the new Noble M600. Jenson Button is the Formula 1 World Champion in a Reasonably Priced Car.
The three amigos attempt to travel from the Amazon basin in Bolivia to the coast of Chile in three locally bought 4x4s. "Locally bought" being a euphemism for rubbish. As well as the effects of altitude on their bodies, they must endure the local insect population and a run along El Camino de le Muerte - the 'Death Road'.
All three presenters get to test a car this week; Jeremy drives the BMW X6, Richard drives the new supercar from Lexus and James drives the Vauxhall Insignia with Margaret Calvert, the designer of Britain's road signs. In the studio, the boys try some electric personal transport solutions and Seasick Steve is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. Top Gear returns in the spring.
