In this second Lockdown Special, the trio dive into the bizarre world of French car culture. On an epic road trip starting in the Welsh hills, they dish up a hair raising mountain climb, bomb defusals, propellor powered cars, helicopter stunts and the most thrilling race of their lives before reaching the English Channel for a jaw dropping medieval climax. And a soupcon of French art house cinema.
Confined to the UK by Covid, Jeremy, Richard and James embark on a Lockdown Special to find out just why American 70s cars never took off in Britain. At the wheel of a Cadillac Coupe De Ville, a Lincoln Continental and a Buick Riviera in stunning Scottish surroundings, the three hosts undergo many mishaps and adventures before embarking on one of their toughest challenges yet.
The trio find themselves back on four wheels. Armed with sports cars, Richard, James and Jeremy think they are in for a cushy road trip as they arrive on the island of Reunion and race on the world’s most expensive piece of tarmac. But a bizarre challenge propels them to Madagascar where they must tackle the world’s toughest road, in some of the most extremely modded cars they have ever built.
In the first of a series of feature length Specials, Clarkson, Hammond and May take a one time only break from cars and set out on an epic journey across Cambodia and Vietnam…in boats. This adventure packed voyage sees the hapless trio experience thrills, spills and genuine danger as they try to navigate their way through the world’s most iconic waterway – the Mekong Delta.
