Fifth Gear

Series 12 - Episode 2



The team examines whether a big old car is safer than a small new one, by crashing a 15-year-old Volvo 940 estate into a three-year-old Renault Modus. Jason Plato puts an Audi R8 through its paces when he races Tiff Needell in a Porsche 911, while Jonny Smith road-tests the £330,000 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Roadster. Plus, actor and comedian Patrick McGuinness takes his motorbike test and Vicki Butler-Hendrson tries out the Peugeot 207 GTi.
