Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May immerse themselves in the world of classic cars to find out if they really are, as the anoraks claim, more fun than modern machinery.

South America Special: Bolivia

Undaunted after their epic adventures across Botswana, Vietnam and The Arctic Circle, the Top Gear presenters embark upon another eagerly awaited special challenge, and without doubt this is their toughest and most exciting yet. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are dropped deep in the Bolivian rainforest armed only with three shabby 4x4s which they bought from local small ads for a maximum of �3,500 a piece. What follows is set to be their most extraordinary journey to date as they attempt to drive from the heart of Bolivia to the Pacific coast of Chile. After facing the challenge of getting the vehicles onto dry land, they make their way through the jungle, trying to escape from the deep, dark centre of the rainforest by crossing gullies and rivers. They finally emerge, only to encounter drug lords, the debilitating effects of high altitude in the Atacama Desert and the terrifying sheer drops of the infamous El Camino de la Muerte (aka ‘Death Road’), where they are literally pushed to the edge.

The final hurdle is a range of impossibly steep sand-dunes as, battered and exhausted, they make their way down to Chile’s Pacific coast.
