Top Gear: The Perfect Road TripWednesday 20 August at 20:00
Seven days, more than 1,000 miles, 20 cars, two boats, a motorbike and one dream...it all adds up to the perfect road trip for Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.
Their aim is to select the ideal mode of transport for each leg of a pilgrimage from Venice, Italy to Pau in France - home to a legendary street circuit and the origins of Grand Prix racing. On the way they prepare by taking to the track at Monza, home of Italian Formula One, and try to get noticed on the road course in Monaco. After cruising the canals in Venice they take to the tarmac in the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Mercedes SLS Black.
As well as driving a mind-blowing selection of iconic cars in stunning locations, Jeremy and Richard sample the culinary delights of Italy and France before they turn up the heat even more with a Top Gear race... and the worst forfeit in Top Gear television history!
