The one with Diesel actually wins
Series 4, Episode 8 (2004)
Richard destroys some cars with the help of a Boeing 747’s jet engines and Martin Clunes behaves badly in our reasonably priced car. James relaxes in a Maserati in Sicily.
Jeremy pours scorn on the latest Italian super coupe, but is it a car so flawed even the Stig can’t make it sing like a bird? Crank up the Perry Como, here he comes.Watch Now
Other-StuffFarewell, Rover V8
Richard gets emotional at the thought of the Rover V8 dying after 37 years, but his love fades pretty quickly when he tries to race a V8-powered SD1 and gets trashed.
Jeremy loves the modern Ford GT, not least because unlike the Le Mans legend that inspired it he can actually fit inside. That’s why he decides to buy one himself.Watch Now
Another useful science experiment shows what happens if you drive your car just a smidge too close to a Boeing 747’s jet engine. Richard picks up the pieces.Watch Now
Completing the full set – well, OK, all two – of the Men Behaving Badly stars (yes, yes, OK, not counting Caroline Quentin or Leslie Ash) Gary himself takes to the TG track.Watch Now
TestsDiesel vs petrol
