The Ariel Atom, with a V8 engine, 900bhp-per-ton and a 0-60mph time under 2.3 seconds, is driven on the track by James. Will it reach 60mph? Richard plays with a Porsche - again. This time, the new 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, which he races against a VW Beetle. A race with a Top Gear twist... Jeremy drives a practical car that you can afford - the Skoda Yeti, and puts it through some rather unusual tests. John Bishop is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May go head-to-head against their opposite numbers from Australian Top Gear in a car-based version of The Ashes. With disciplines including rallying, drifting and an Aussie version of double-decker car racing, it's an all-out grudge match that will almost certainly end in tears. Also in the show, Jeremy is on the test track in Ferrari's new 599 GTO and another celebrity guest takes their turn as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
