Following their perilous watery escapades in the Mekong, the intrepid trio find themselves back on four wheels for their latest adventure on the exotic islands of Reunion and Madagascar. Armed with three sports cars, Richard, James and Jeremy believe they are in for a cushy road trip and fun escapades as they arrive in Reunion and race on the world's most expensive piece of tarmac, a jaw dropping ring road built out in the sea. But a bizarre challenge from Mr Wilman propels them across the ocean to Madagascar, where they must tackle the toughest road in the world, in some of the most extremely modded cars they have ever built, in order to complete one of their toughest quests to date. The whole gruelling adventure ends in an explosive climax.

Didn't feel as natural as other specials
I'm just going to echo the sentiments here. The scripted bits really were more noticeable. The long gap in between episodes destroys the vibe and these guys aren't getting any younger so...
I used to love the specials more than the in studio stuff, but a lot of their natural humor came with their off the cuff comments doing the news on old Top Gear. The smaller challenges and races were also highly entertaining. This new format is supposed to be just that while trimming away the in studio stuff but they've trimmed away the organic elements of the show in the process.
