The bad news is that this season will be shortest of all with only 5 episodes for us. But the five episodes are definitely packing some serious heat!

Here is what to expect –

  • The boys will head to Africa again in search of the source of the Nile in three second-hand station wagons - BMW 5-Series Touring, a Volvo 850 T5-R and a Subaru WRX (image below).
  • Jeremy will try to create a car smaller than the Peel P50 with the help of some students from Coventry University.
  • James goes rallying in a stock Bentley Continental GT.
  • A US roadtrip with the new SRT Viper, the Lexus LFA and an Aston Martin Vanquish.
  • Richard and Jeremy redesign a Fiat Multipla for the elderly.
  • Car football returns to the telly after a long time.
  • And Jeremy will race a Shelby Mustang GT500 against the other guys in a train.

There will also be road tests of Toyota GT86, Pagani Huayra, Ford Focus ST, Renault Megane RenaultSport Cup 265 and Vauxhall Astra VXR.
