DescriptionSeven days, more than 1,000 miles, 20 cars, two boats, a motorbike and one dream...The Perfect Road Trip.
The aim: to select the ideal mode of transport for each leg of a pilgrimage from Venice, Italy to Pau in France - home to a legendary street circuit and the origins of Grand Prix racing. On the way we prepare by taking to the track at Monza - the home of Italian Formula One. We try to get noticed on the road course in Monaco in a Bugatti, a Lamborghini and a Model T Ford. After cruising the canals in Venice we take to the tarmac and things look good - thanks to the 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.
There's culture too. An all-out effort to get the Birmingham burger-boy to savour the culinary delights of Italy and France - including octopus and an old balcony. Then it's time to turn up the heat even more with a Top Gear race... and the worst forfeit in television history. Finally we head to the historic road course in Pau. Surely nothing could spoil our Perfect Road Trip...
Enjoy...! Jeremy Clarkson & Richard Hammond
