Guest: Rupert Grint • Rubens Barrichello
Original air date: July 11, 2010
Businessmen will certainly want a good four-door saloon car for driving, so the boys see if they can help to find one – May believes it is the rather good-looking Maserati Quattroporte GTS, despite it being a little fiddly and complicated, Hammond thinks it is the beautiful Aston Martin Rapide, despite it being too expensive, while Clarkson is unsure his choice of the Porsche Panamera Turbo is right, because it is ugly (in the trio’s eyes). Starting in London, the presenters try out their cars, before stopping at a business park and letting the Stig see how fast they are on an improvised course. To fully decide which is best, the trio give them the ultimate test by chauffeuring members of a wedding party to the church and then to the reception, although the boys get a little distracted. Elsewhere, Hammond tests out two new muscles, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro, while British actor, Rupert Grint, is the latest star in the new reasonably priced car.
Note: The wedding party featured in the ‘Best Business Saloon Car’ film were a genuine party; both the bride and groom got married during filming of the segment, and appeared in the studio where they received a gift of a custom toilet seat for allowing the presenters to chauffeur them.
