Top Gear, The Specials, Vol. 1Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Top Gear is quite simply the world's biggest car show. Multi-award-winning and broadcast in more than 100 countries, cars are just the starting point for epic road trips, over-ambitious projects, and loads of good old-fashioned mucking about by hosts and celebrities who really should know better. Top Gear Specials involve more intense challenges then the normal trouble Jeremy, James and Richard seem to get into including trips to the North Pole, Africa and Asia.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoBotswana Special||Our story begins in a little village on the border between Zimbabwe and Botswana. Unusually, James was the first to arrive, in his 1985 Mercedes 230E. Next up is Jeremy with a 1981 Lancia Beta Coupé. Finally, Richard turns up in an Opel Kadet made in 1963, which he immediately bonded with and named Oliver.To reach their destination on the Namibian border, the guys have to negotiate the vast openness and primordial sludge of the Makgadikgadi salt pans, the choking dust of the Kalahari Desert, not to mention the treacherous rivers and hungry wildlife of the Okavango Delta. Along the way, they encounter more or less every dangerous animal known to man, including hippos, elephants and the apparently testicle-crazed honey badger – as well as gas shortages, flying vice-presidents and the Stig’s African cousin. Incredibly, the cars survive everything Africa can throw at them, including being dismantled, crashed, drowned and shot. Of course, the hosts are well-motivated to keep their cars moving: anyone who breaks down irreparably will be forced to complete the journey in the spare car – an irritatingly unstoppable Volkswagen Beetle. Nevertheless, when Namibia comes into view some 1,000 miles and almost a week later, the scale of their achievement really dawns on them. Plus they have learned a valuable lesson: if you live in the leafy suburbs of Surrey or need to cross an African country, you don’t need a BMW X5 or supercharged Range Rover. All you need is a Beetle.||51:38||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|2||Closed CaptioningVideoWinter Olympics Special||The team travel to Norway where they attempt Olympic events - in cars. A rocket-powered mini is fired off a ski jump, Jeremy and James tackle the biathlon with 4x4s, Richard stages a game of car ice hockey, and the new Jaguar XK races a speed skater.||59:29||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|3||Closed CaptioningVideoVietnam Special||In one of the most spectacular and incredible Top Gear road trips ever attempted, the boys head to Vietnam, aiming to travel the entire length of the country in just eight days, thereby achieving what the American military failed to do in 10 years.||1:13:36||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|4||Closed CaptioningVideoUS Road Trip Special||Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond travel to Florida in order to prove that a fly-drive holiday would be more fun if you bought a car instead of renting one. Having picked up some wheels for no more than $1,000 each, the boys embark on an epic road trip to find out who got the best deal, encountering heat, flies and some very angry locals along the way.||59:38||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|5||Closed CaptioningVideoPolar Special||It's the ultimate test of man against machine - or should that be dog against machine - as the Top Gear team set out on one of their most ambitious and arduous challenges ever. Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond take part in an epic land race starting in the town of Resolute, Northern Canada, finishing 450 miles later at the Magnetic North Pole.||51:54||$1.99||View in iTunes|
