The one with The Top Gear Generation Game
Series 3, Episode 8 (2003)
What’s best, old or new? Clarkson and Hammond slug that out while James gets all square about the Aston Lagonda. Richard also compares a Nissan Micra to an hour’s private jet hire
TestsMicra vs Boeing 737
What’s the best way to spend nine grand – on a new Nissan Micra or an hour’s hire of a private jet? Ever the scientist, Richard sets out to compare like with unlike.
Jeremy gets whimsical about the greatness of classic touring Mercs, and ends up borrowing one from a Chelsea dealer so he can swan about in the countryside.
TestsAston Martin Lagonda
It may be a design classic that was way ahead of its time, but has it got enough charm to persuade James that it’s worth a punt at £15k, when everything could, and will, go wrong?
Probably the first star guest not to have a driving licence – and possibly the first who wanted to be a priest – the big man squeezes into a not very big car and sets a time.
TestsAudi TT V6
It’s a fashion car, but what should you wear to drive Audi’s trinket coupe? Jeremy asks Trinny and Susannah for a spot of sartorial advice, and then gets ready for a drive.
Other-StuffTG Generation Game
Jeremy vs Richard, old vs new. Richard argues that new cars rock, Clarkson praises the originals. Featuring Golf, MR2, hot Fords, hot Peugeots and Nissan coupes.
