The one with The Reliant Robin space shuttle
Series 9, Episode 4 (2007)
Surely you know this one - Richard and James try to launch a Reliant Robin into orbit. And fail. Probably the most infamous film we ever produced. Simon Pegg is our star this week.
Hammond reckons the Porker is better than a Fezza, but it will have to be bloody good to convince Ferrari fan JC. He drives both, but will he change his mind for once?
Those zany tuners at Brabus have changed just about every tiny last bit on the Mercedes V12 to turn the SL into a fire-breathing monster. But does it work?Watch Now
Trouble flares again at the Cool Wall as Hammond tries to sneak a Ducati superbike onto the board and gets into an undignified scuffle with four-wheeled JC.
The Hot Fuzz star explains his use of an Astra diesel in his cop film, and then attempts to beat Steve Coogan’s time on the TG track in our Chevrolet Lacetti.Watch Now
Arguably one of the most infamous TG films ever – Richard and James decide to enter the space race using a Reliant Robin. Can it fly? Also, can it return safely to earth?Watch Now
Want to comment on this?

please show this episode again on bbc3 or something because it gets cut to fit in the load of adverts that are on dave and I love this episode, the reliant robin space shuttle attempt is awsome and simon pegg the best actor ever is on it too. this with the top gear team is a winning mix that I could watch over and over again
We now own the Porsche 911 Turbo from this episode and it lives in Wiltshire - it has a very quiet life - only driven at weekends. It has a bath on Sundays and is having a nice rest.
Can anyone tell the name of the music, and the composer of the music used for the Relian Robin Space Shuttle Luke-Turbo
