A cheap car challenge and the Maserati MC20: new Top Gear!
Cheap cars have got very expensive recently. With the average price of a used car in the UK rising by five thousand pounds in the last year alone, are there still genuine second-hand bargains to be had out there?
To find out, Top Gear’s consumer champions assembled a veritable smorgasbord of very used cars – all bought for less than £500, all with valid MOT, at least a couple without a truly harrowing odour inside – and set about subjecting them to some proper consumer reliability testing. Proper consumer reliability testing that involved, naturally, a military tank assault course, a substantial water crossing, and a race to the death around Europe’s biggest scrapyard.
Elsewhere in episode four of series 32, Harris takes on the mid-engined Maserati MC20 supercar, while Freddie drives the electric Rivian R1T pick-up.
Watch the new episode on BBC One at 8pm, Sunday night, or catch up (in the UK) on BBC iPlayer
