Clarkson remains in Japan to further test out the abilities of the Nissan GT-R on the Fuji Speedway, before seeing if his large, 1969 Mercedes-Benz 600, is any better than May’s 1972 Rolls-Royce Corniche Coupé, as the pair take them through a series of challenges, including a quarter mile “push” race and a test to successfully and legally park their cars in the middle of London. Elsewhere, there’s chance for Top Gear to save the countryside with Clarkson driving a 4WD Daihatsu Terios and being pursued by Hammond in a game of “Small Japanese Off-Roader Hunting”, and the “Dragons”, Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis, are hoping they invested well with the Lacetti for a fast time.
