Top Gear - Series 12 - Episode 5


Motoring news and views from the usual team. Richard Hammond celebrates the 40th birthday of the iconic Ferrari Daytona by taking one back to its spiritual home on the Italian Riviera, before attempting to beat James May and a multimillion-pound power boat in a race from Portofino to St Tropez. Meanwhile, back in the UK Jeremy Clarkson is on the test track, testing the new BMW M3 saloon against a young pretender from Japan, the Lexus IS-F. Top Gear also tackles a political hot potato as Richard attempts to find the best sort of bus for British city streets by getting together everything from a hopper to a bendy bus and then racing them. Plus, Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
