94 min

Last year, Richard Hammond

and I set off from Venice

on what should have been

the perfect road trip.


We always had

the right car for the right road.

What a machine!

The sun shone when we wanted it to...

Look at this now.

...and the rain came when we didn't.


It was brilliant.

Right up to the moment

when the French Constabulary

took away our driving licences.

Oh... Right.

So, this year with the lesson learned,

we thought we'd do

the perfect road trip again.

And this time we'd get it right.


Do not adjust your set.

I know this how we began last year,

on a Riva Acquarama,

the world's best speedboat.

In Venice, the world's best city

- that's built on a sea.

- Yeah.

But there are some major differences

between what you saw

last year and what you'll see this time.

Firstly, he's even fatter.

- Oh, I am.

- He is.

And secondly, we have completely

changed the route.

Oh, yeah. This year we are not

going to France.

Because frankly, they are...

Well, they're a bunch of...


Instead we shall be staying in Italy,

God's personal racetrack,

going from Venice down through Tuscany

and Rome

and along the spectacular Amalfi Coast.

And the cars we'll be using will be

even better than they were last year.

Faster, harder, louder.

We'd even arranged to finish on the

glittering jet-set island of Capri

in a couple of classic Ford Capris.

Nothing could go wrong this time.


Frankly, the roads we've lined up

this year are biblical.

Well, they're not biblical,

they're more modern than that,

but they are magnificent.

And the cars we have to drive on them...

So, there is a whole exciting, thrilling

bag of things we've got lined up.

But one thing we haven't put in it...

Is James May.

James May. He's not here.

Which is what really makes it perfect.

You lose Captain Slow.

We can go with the sort of speeds

they like in Italy.

And I have one extra thing,

one extra little piece

of perfection this year...

- Oh, here we go.

- go with the perfect road trip.

No, critical, for the first time ever.

Food, we're abroad.

Ordinarily, I pretty much starve

or survive on crisps.

This time, for the first time,

not only am I going to be able to eat

foreign food,

I'm gonna love it

because we are going to Bologna,

home of spaghetti Bolognese,

my favourite food in the world.

Bologna. Bolognese.

I'll be able to eat like a local

and love it.


Soon, we docked the boat

and were ready to meet the cars

we'd chosen

for the first leg of the journey.

Richard would be using the brand new

5.2-litre V10 Lamborghini Hurcan,

the long-awaited replacement

for the Gallardo.

And I'd be using this.

The equally new McLaren 650S,

which comes with a twin turbo

3.8-litre V8.

Now, you're probably sitting there

wondering why neither of us

has chosen to use a Ferrari 458.

And that's a good question

because it is a magnificent car.

- It is. But it has one massive flaw.

- Mmm.

- James May owns one.

- He does.

He does and he has completely ruined it.

Nobody would want to buy

Ferrari 458 now.

- No.

- Nobody.

I do not want to drive to Bologna

in James May's car.

No, it would be like going there

in his underpants.

- It would ruin the experience.

- It's worse.

Whereas in these,

our immediate future is bright.

Our immediate future is orange.

Very, very orange.



What a noise!

James May thought long and hard

about buying a McLaren.

But then he realised it was much quicker
