The one with The convertible people carrier
Series 8, Episode 1 (2006)
The boys chop the roof off a people carrier to make a convertible, Richard drives an embarrassing Micra and James marvels at the new Honda Civic. We also wave goodbye to our Suzuki Liana.
His recent daytime TV ‘experiences’ prove Richard is no stranger to embarrassing himself, so he gets to drive Nissan’s least virile car. A paper bag comes in very handy.Watch Now
TestsJames’s Civic duty
The highly challenging design of the new Honda hatch sets our James banging on about starter buttons, triangular exhausts and a hazard warning switch that looks like a boiled sweet.
For the first time ever the Stig comes unstuck big time on the TG track, sticking the preposterously powerful CCX into the tyres. Something wrong with the car?Watch Now
Witness the moment when TG retires its trusty Suzuki Liana and replaces it with the equally forgettable Chevrolet Lacetti. Then there’s a celebrity scramble to set a quick time.
With James as project leader, the boys take on the challenge of lopping the roof off a Renault Espace and then try it out in the lion enclosure at Woburn Safari Park.Watch Now
