Lifestyle Series

Richard and James try to make a Reliant Robin boldly go where no three-wheeler has gone before, the latest incarnation of Porsche’s 911 flagship is put through its paces, and the impossible happens when Jeremy finds a car that actually has too much power. It’s unlikely, but should you find the standard Mercedes SL600 wanting in the power department, mentalist German tuning firm Brabus may have the answer. By throwing away most of the standard Merc’s motor, adding new turbochargers and fiddling with the many onboard computers, it has created the most powerful convertible car ever.

Supercars are traditionally huge, overblown pantomimes on wheels, but the Porsche 911 Turbo does things a bit differently. It’s quite small, you can see out of it, and there’s even somewhere to put your designer man-bag. But, as Clarkson discovers, it’s still properly supercar fast. Space, so we’re told, is the final frontier. And since Top Gear has done pretty much everything you can do to a car on Earth, we decide that Richard and James should try to put one into space. What follows is a simply massive undertaking that combines cutting-edge amateur rocketry, British grit and determination, and truly intergalactic levels of cocking about. What follows is the largest non-commercial rocket launch attempt in European history. Meanwhile, Simon Pegg is the star in the Reasonably Priced Car.

Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond take part in an epic land race starting in the town of Resolute, Northern Canada and finishing 450 miles later at the Magnetic North Pole. The terrain they tackle is some of the toughest on Earth – a mix of mountainous land masses and jagged sea ice where temperatures can drop to a mindnumbing minus 65 degrees centigrade… and then there are the polar bears. The Arctic is home to 80 percent of the world’s polar bear population and, when it comes to lunch, they really don’t care if it’s seal or human.

Having conquered the North Pole, the boys needed a new adventure. Enter Botswana. From extreme cold to extreme heat, the boys are challenged to scale 1000 miles from the Botswana/Zimbabwe border to the Western border with Namibia. Before the intrepid expedition could start the boys were given simple instructions – buy a car for no more than $1500, no 4WDs allowed and head to Botswana. As always the sledging started before the race got under way but after opening their first set of instructions the boys seemed to be lacking in confidence. Will this challenge be the one that defeats them? This band of merry motorists finds themselves facing oppressive heat, potential death, and lions. Most frightening of all, Richard names his car. Worrying times indeed.
