Season 11  "Cool Wall"  11x2

Aired 11 years ago - Jun 29, 2008

Jeremy falls in love with the Mercedes CLK Black. Richard races the Audi RS6 Avant against skiers in the Alps and Top Gear Stuntman attempts to recreate a famous stunt from a James Bond film in a MG Maestro. On the track, the Mitsubishi Evo X and Subaru Impreza STi go head-to-head. Rising from the ashes like a phoenix, the Cool Wall returns. Rupert Penry-Jones and Peter Firth are the Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car.
