11May2003 ( 2003-05-11 )

Review . Jeremy reviewed the Smart Roadster and said it was good to drive despite poor acceleration and a limited top speed. However, the boot space was described as similar to a baking tray, and the semi-automatic gearbox was found to be almost unusably slow to respond to gear changes. Also viewed were Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet and the Ford Street Ka. which Clarkson and Hammond agreed were impossible for men to drive with dignity.

Cool Wall . Renault Avantime is removed from the wall because it isn’t produced any more. VW Beetle Cabriolet and Ford Street Ka are Cool, but only for girls, and the Smart Roadster is Subzero.

Love/Hate Board . Jeremy introduces the Love/Hate board. Love is already full with a photo of Kristin Scott Thomas and another one of Terry-Thomas. In the Hate section are chummy radio opening messages, cyclists, paddle-shift gear boxes and personalised license plates. Richard reveals his top 5 worst cars ever:

4. Peel P50 (3 wheel car)

1. Nissan Sunny (which he destroys with a jet engine powered drag racer)

Star In A Reasonably-Priced Car . Vinnie Jones recreates a classic scene from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels with a melon and a Smart Roadster. He achieved a time of 1:53.

Review . New presenter James May reviews his Bentley T2. which he says ruined his life because of poor fuel economy and he has to rent a garage 7 miles (11km) from his house to keep it in. Clarkson enjoys the Bentley’s ludicrously soft suspension, but is confused when May calls his Bentley so cool that certain people will not understand.

The News . The Peugeot 206 GTI and 206 GTI Estate are spotlighted. Jeremy likes the Estate, Richard and James don’t. New cars since the first series wrapped include the Renault Kangoo, Saab 93 Convertible, and the Lamborghini Gallardo.

Jeremy predicts that if the Gallardo is anything like its big brother the Murcielago, it will be a stonking good car. However, James foresees a problem and reveals a mystery fax that the Top Gear office received consisting of some phone numbers and a drawing of a Lotus Esprit. It turns out when you call the numbers, you reach Lotus and are then asked to identify the picture that’s come through your fax.

The reason Lotus is doing this is to try and prove that Esprit shape (supercar wedge) belongs to them so they can copyright it. Richard closes the news by showcasing a Ferrari 355 in studio. He tells the surprised audience that it can be had for a mere £20,000, but then reveals that it is actually a fake built from a Toyota MR2.

Continuing the cheap thrills theme of this episode, Hammond goes on to explain that once it was completed, the bloke who built it was able to get a lower insurance quote because it was classed as a kit car. He further explains that the guy has had to disappear into the midlands underworld for fear of the wrath of Ferrari.

Review . Richard Hammond reviews the Bowler Wildcat. becomes overwhelmed with emotion during the test drive and exclaims he is a driving god, much to Clarkson’s and May’s amusement. The Bowler achieves a time of 1:39.4 on a dry track. Slow for a car, but immensely fast for a high-riding off-roader.

Review . Murray Walker. the former Formula One commentator features as a special guest, driving the McLaren F1. the fastest car in the world at that point, Now it is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport .

Concluding the show, Richard returns to the Top Gear test track with a caravan, which is then destroyed by the jet engine powered drag racer.
