Top Gear

Series 27 - Episode 3



“All right Chris, I’ve got this,” says Freddie Flintoff in a segment from this episode that has been heavily trailed. He’s at the wheel of a humongous estate car, belting around a rally course with his co-presenters.

Or rather, not an estate but a converted Daimler hearse, painted a hideous blue and made very fast indeed, by the looks of it. Too fast, it turns out, for one particular corner, where Flintoff loses it and rolls the car in the kind of spectacular moto-slapstick on which Top Gear thrives. It’s part of a segment where Paddy McGuiness argues that a converted hearse is the ideal second-hand family car.

And Zara and Mike Tindall go head to-head on the track.


Chris Harris, Freddie Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness get to grips with a disused hearse, and give it a new lease of life as the ultimate family car. On the track, Chris puts the Dallara Stradale through its paces, while royal couple Zara and Mike Tindall go head-to-head in Star in a Reasonably Fast Car.
