Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are in a nostalgic mood as they set out to prove that the hot hatchbacks of their youth were better than their modern equivalents. With Clarkson in a VW Golf GTI, Hammond in a Vauxhall Nova SRi and May in a Ford Fiesta XR2i, they set out on a road trip, encountering a series of challenges along the way including a tricky hill climb course and an unusual visit to the super-market. Their journey ends at an old army training ground in Wales where the trio and their ageing cars must face the explosive power of the heavily armed and heavily moustachioed Top Gear Police Department. Downton Abbey actor Hugh Bonneville is the star in the reasonably priced car.
