Top Gear: The Perfect Road TripNovember 17th, 2013
Join Top Gear hosts Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson as they venture over seven days, more than 1,000 miles, 20 cars, two boats, a motorbike and one dream…The Perfect Road Trip from Venice to Pau, France, home of the very first Grand Prix race in 1901.
The aim of the shoot was simple: to select the ideal mode of transport for each leg of the pilgrimage. On the way, they first hit the track at Monza, home of Italian Formula 1. They then proceed to the road course in Monaco in a Bugatti, a Lamborghini and a Model T Ford. Following that, a drive along the canals in Venice in a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Mercedes SLS Black. Throw in a Pagani Huayra, Porsche Cayman S and a GT3 as well as the Aston Martin Vanquish centenary edition, Bentley V8 convertible, Rolls Royce Phantom coupe and the face-bending BAC Mono all seems pretty perfect to us. And don’t forget rally driving on the rainiest, muddiest course you’ve ever seen (more on that in the behind-the-scenes video below).
