Season 21  "Hammond vs. 6 by 6"  21x4

Aired 5 years ago - Feb 23, 2014

Jeremy Clarkson is in Italy to celebrate the return of the bespoke Alfa Romeo 8C. Richard Hammond is in the dunes of Abu Dhabi to drive a new six wheeled machine from Mercedes Benz – the G63 6x6 – which was originally developed for the Australian military but, with the addition of some chrome trim and leather seats, is now available civilians willing to spend over half a million dollars! Meanwhile, James May makes a rare visit to the test track to try out two new models from British sports car maker Caterham, and comedian Jack Whitehall is the ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.’
