Review

To Italy for a three-way contest between the presenters and their favourite hot hatchbacks. Jeremy Clarkson champions a Citroën DS3 Racing, Richard Hammond a Fiat 500C Abarth and James May a Renaultsport Clio Cup. As they power their way to Monte Carlo via romantic Italian roads, they’ll be able to taunt one another over walkie-talkies before facing a left-field challenge of the cars’ performance.

Back at base, comedian Ross Noble drops by and on the test track Clarkson is torturing metaphors to critique the hi-tech British supercar with a name like a dishwasher: the McLaren MP4-12C.

Summary

The trio travel to Italy to test high-performance hatchbacks. Jeremy Clarkson is in the Citroen DS3 Racing, Richard Hammond champions the Fiat 500C Abarth and James May makes the case for the Renaultsport Clio 200 Cup as they navigate their way round baffling Italian towns and take part in a scavenger hunt, before putting the cars through their paces on the F1 street circuit in Monaco. Also, petrolhead comedian Ross Noble is in the Reasonably Priced Car and the McLaren MP4-12C supercar comes under review.
