Top Gear Series 10 (2007)

James, Jeremy and Richard get increasingly ambitious as they decide to head out to Botswana for an epic adventure, which sees them cross the Makgadikgadi salt pan and the Kalahari desert in a Lancia Beta Coupe, a Mercedes-Benz 230E and a 1963 Opel Kadett called ‘Oliver’… The boys also find themselves pushing the boat out – quite literally – as they build three more amphibious cars in a bid to cross the English Channel to France. In more familiar territory, the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Carrera S are out on the test track, while guests include Dame Helen Mirren, James Blunt and a Formula One rookie by the name of Lewis Hamilton…
