Top Gear Series 7 (2005)

Jeremy, James and Richard take a Ferrari F430 Spider, a Pagani Zonda S and a Ford GT to the Millau Viaduct in the South of France, with another shootout taking place between the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the BMW M6 and the Porsche 911 Carrera S on the Isle of Man. Dame Ellen McArthur navigates her way round the test track, and Jeremy takes on his most ambitious challenge yet as he tries to get from Alba to London in a Bugatti Veyron faster than his colleagues can make it in a plane. The series ends with a trip to Lillehammer where the boys stage the first – and so far only – edition of the Top Gear Winter Olympics.

The Winter Olympics Special

The Top Gear team hit Norway for a Winter Olympics special, where they attempt various Olympic events, but with cars. That means Jeremy and James tackling the biathlon in Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90 SUVs, plus a shed load of mad stunts, using everything from a rocket-powered Mini to a snowmobile.
